In It For Health

Where health and psychology intersect

You need to really TALK to your teen

Posted by Dr. Susan on March 4, 2008

I love this new research, being reported in the Journal of Pediatrics which tells parents that one big talk about sex isn’t enough! It’s great advice… talking to your kids more frequently about intimate topics will improve your relationship with them overall. In addition to this, you can’t expect to be able to spring a talk about sex on your teen if you haven’t been talking to him or her all along about everything else in life. Intimacy needs to be built over time–this is true in all relationships and it can’t begin with sex–even in conversations! So talk to your kids about everything and even more than that–listen!!!
