On this morning’s weekly parenting segment for Global TV, I talked about How To Answer Your Kids’ Tough Questions.

Well my friends… the research is in. Skirting around the tough issues because you’re too uncomfortable to talk about them with your children, just ain’t gonna cut it. We all need to start getting super comfortable with the uncomfortable.

I’d love to know YOUR strategies on answering your kids’ toughest questions. Does it make you uncomfortable? Do you shy away or do you tackle head on?

    1. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been conducting a little research on this.
      And he in fact ordered me dinner simply because I discovered it for him…
      lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for tthe meal!!
      But yeah, thanx for spending the time to talk about
      this subject here on your blog.

    2. I absolutely love ykur blog and find nearly all of your post’s to be
      just what I’m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content available for you?
      I wouldn’t mind comoosing a post or elaborating on a number
      of the subjects you write concerning here. Again, awesome website!

      As a mom of two kids, I always explain clearly, honestly and in simple words the entire sex “procedure”. I am not sure if this is scientifically correct, but i have positive reactions from them. Besides, they the way to know when you’re hiding things from them.

      • Thanks Kathy, I do the same. I also wanted to say that “the man’s penis and woman’s vagina fit together like a puzzle” but it didn’t go well on Morning TV. ;)) Thanks for your comment.

      Erica, I taught 6th grade for 9 years, including the dreaded Human Reproduction unit – a.k.a. Sex Ed. Teaching that unit took any acting skill I had – at first. As I went on, I just needed the confidence to know that these kids really did have questions, and it was okay to answer them straight out.

      It is harder to talk to my own children, but not much. I made sure they knew my door was open, and I was ready to talk – whether about sex or other tough questions.
