First, you’re absolutely right that as Mormons we generally do a horrible job of talking with our kids about sex. They are the grownups, and even if the topic makes them uncomfortable, it’s their responsibility to teach their children.
Unfortunately until today I thought that was the same definition of sex.
Before I go on I want to add that I have a normal family and very normal parents.
I know there are people, who for one reason or another, struggle with having a happy sex life.
Perhaps we’ll hear some of their perspectives in the comments.
Not only does it create trust between you and your kids but it prepares them to be functional teens and adults.
