Talking to your kids about sex can be intimidating. Host Lindsay Aerts talks with LDS Sex Therapist Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife about how to create a culture of openness around sex and sexuality so your kids will come to you with their questions. While sitting down with a child at a certain age to have "the birds and the bees" talk may be important, even more important may be creating a culture in your home where sex is viewed as healthy and good to be used in an appropriate way, not as shameful or bad. Our children will have natural, human sexual desire and it's our job to help them navigate those tricky emotions. Dr. Fife discusses what's appropriate to teach your kids about sex for different age levels, how to facilitate the conversations, how to still create an openness if abstinence before marriage is the goal, and whether or not it's too late to create this culture if you already have older children. You can get more information on Dr. Finlayson-Fife's work by visiting www.finlayson-fife.com. The Mom Show on KSL is hosted by Lindsay Aerts.
