Sex is always a difficult topic for a father to cover, no matter how old your son or daughter gets. You might never feel comfortable talking about the birds and the bees together, but it's a necessary aspect of parenthood that you need to face. It's tough to handle a subject that's typically viewed as taboo, so knowing how to conduct yourself can go a long way in improving the process.
Here are some great ways to effectively - and comfortably - broach the topic of sex with your kids.
Discuss your values
It might seem awkward to make it so personal, but clarifying your own values about sex can help you think of the right way to talk to your child. You need to understand your own attitude toward sex to accurately frame the conversation. From there, you can begin to come up with your desired approach to the experience.
Focus on 'do,' not 'don't'
You may want to immediately set ground rules and limits by telling your son or daughter what he or she shouldn't do, but you don't want to put a negative connotation on sex. It can be an important aspect of their lives and you should focus on how to make them healthier and smarter partners, rather than tell them about all the bad things.
