if there are no taboos then everyone will run around naked, that's not good either.

I think children should be given information about sex when they start to question. If you have a good relationship with your children they will come to you with their questions. Which mine did! Then you can release the information gradually as required without overwhelming them with it all at once. It is all about being a on hand parent.

Really? :roll: Perhaps it's your generation. The young now are taught about genders and sex at school. The importance is how to teach it. It's not a taboo. Parents don't often talk about it because it's sensitive but at school, teachers know how to deal with it. As I said in my previous post, students in Vietnam (in cities) are taught about genders and sex by biology teachers, doctors, and psychologists.

my parents also never tell me about sex. I know it from book, and other stuff that can 'help' you to explore information about sex.
It is important for parents to tell their children about sex earlier (maybe at 10). I think that it is too risky for the children to learn about sex without any guidance from the adults. you know what I mean..

As I was 5 years old, I always asked my Mom the same silly question :" Where did I come from". At first, my Mom didn't answer me because she said I was too young to know.You know, it's really embraasing thing to talk about, especially 5-year-old girl like me. When I become older, my Mom began talking about sex. Now I know more about sex and relationships. I'm proud of my mother. Mom, I love you!!!
