Talking to tweens about sexuality begins with a foundation of good communication. Your preteen will feel more comfortable asking you questions about sexuality if they have been able to ask you other difficult questions while growing up. Believe it or not, 10-12 is a good age to start talking about sex and sexuality.

Although tweens are young, they’re also more receptive to information and less likely to interpret our concern as judgmental or accusatory. It’s also generally well before they start to have serious interest in the opposite sex. While it may seem scary or uncomfortable for a parent of a tween to begin talking to their child about sex at such a young age, we know that parental guidance is.

Talking with teens about sex-related topics, including healthy relationships and the prevention of HIV, other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and pregnancy, is a positive parenting practice that has been widely researched.1A number of programs in a variety of settings (e.g., schools, parents’ worksites) have been shown to increase the amount and quality of communication between parents and their teens. According to an O, The Oprah Magazine and Seventeen magazine sex survey, 46 percent of 15to 18-year-old girls who have had intercourse claim their mothers don’t know.The study also says 78 percent of girls who have had intercourse have not used condoms—and 56 percent say they used no birth control at all. The goal is to normalize sexual education when kids are young, so talking about it is less intense when kids are older and there’s more at stake. By having an ongoing conversation about sex. And one of the biggest challenges that mothers and fathers face is talking to their tweens about sex.

When my son was twelve, I pompously told him he could ask me anything he needed to know about sex, that I would always answer him honestly and directly.

  • Boys have feelings too they don’t have to have to hide it if they want to cry they can cry they don’t have to hide it bec ppl say that if u cry it’s gay like wtf
    Do what ever u want in u life boys
    I am a boy and I cry I cook I dance I sing I do every thing I want cuz ik I am not doing something wrong
    I am doing something right
    Live Ur childhood
    And thank you

  • The truth is that those boys didn’t hear a damn thing she said to them. I guarantee that they were sitting there thinking how badly they wanted to bang her brains out, no joke, that’s what they were thinking!!!!

  • Lol teenage guys are just soooo dazy and like in a whole other planet lol �� lets just say teenage girls like to keep it serious ��

  • “If you knock her up, that’s your problem, I aint bailing you out or providing a babysitter service.” Simple, effective parenting

  • you dont talk about relationship, you fucking show them. if your parents have a shitty relationship, do you realy think they are qualified to teach ANYONE about relationships? ������������������������������������������������������������������������

  • It’s comforting to see most of these YouTube commenters ARE in touch with “reality”. From my PhD perspective, the demographics of the impaneled teen male “Raising Good Men” population is skewed from the onset.

    I was, next, shocked that my sister, Dr. Stephanie Dowd, baited these boys (as most feminists do) that CONSENT relies on the male deferring to and portraying the female as the inferior and always the victim (especially considering that the introduction specified “for an important conversation in the wake of the #metoo movement”).

    CONSENT, for the average U.S. male, in the wake of the #metoo movement is first about these boys’ circumcisions WITHOUT their consent. Segway to the 4:44 twitter post highlighting “that each person’s body is his or her own”, yet they fade out the lie that this is what we teach our daughters. LOL.

    Following-up with the prejudicial “consent” discussion, I would have then asked the boys the all too often overlooked and ignored realistic scenario: “if a girl reached over and put her hand on a boy’s leg, would they feel that was sexual harassment as well?

    Remember, at the beginning of the show, this was supposed to be “an important conversation in the wake of the #metoo movement”. The unbiased recognized the bias (and the unexplained absence of the male host during the sessions), and the biased feel they achieved success.

  • Yep always blame the boys why not we do this to the girls as we’ll to make it not gender bias. Like there is no videos anywhere where we have to talk to our young girls about being a better girlfriend and not harassed boys and such and think you can get away with it.

  • This is so great, I love these segments. It is so important to teach young men and women what is right and wrong, and this is a big part of it.

  • A woman wants you to grab her UNTIL she says no. She doesn’t want you to ask “can I touch your leg?” She wants you to touch without asking UNTIL she says no. If you ask, you’ll be rejected every time. No one teaches boys this.

  • No thanks. MGTOW. Not watching this garbage. They really want men to be subjugated by satanic feminism and the judicial system. It’s pitiful. I shall NOT be a simp. Only trust in God in these final days.

  • There are times in life when a man needs to keep his wits about him and keep a cool head. Not freaking out or panicking (showing emotion) during times of duress is vital and necessary. Same for business transactions and negotiations.
    Not showing emotion doesn’t translate to being cold hearted.
    It’s a life skill that every human should be taught. Only problem is that it’s typically trial by fire, you must struggle and learn how to deal with hardships and come out on top.


    The robots are coming. I’ve been in high tech (both hardware and software engineering) for a while.

    We all see how quickly technology gets better and prices go down.

    Well this is happening with life-like female robots too.

    Tell all your sons and nephews “boys, the globalists/depopulation fanatics, the people at the top of the food chain, needed to drive a wedge between the 2 genders to reduce population on the planet. They felt strongly about that. Population control.”

    “So those guys took a look at males. Then took a look at females. They asked “we need to drive a wedge between the genders which gender will be the easiest to coerce to abandon their gender role, to the disgust of the other gender?”

    Feminism began in the 1960s. They chose women.

    Men haven’t really changed, except we stay away from women at work and we have no marriage plans. And we don’t like getting yelled at for opening the door for a ‘lady’ so we stopped doing that too.

    Tell your sons and nephews about the lifelike companion robots that are coming.
    The female gender role is 100% discredited, it has been abandoned, incrementally, over the past few decades.


  • As if these adults with forced fake smiles who ” program ” them to be ” good ” were perfect!! Perfect America brainwa…. ooops I meant train the kids: just another episode of Black Mirror in the real world!
