Having a growing daughter brings in a loads of concern and donots. Want to know what are other mothers doing for their kids
Hi @Priya_02. It is much better for mothers to be open with their daughters about sex and puberty. Most probably, your daughter already knows and feels awkward about talking about things with you. But as a parent, it should be you who makes her comfortable and discuss these things so that she is aware of the repercussions and is comfortable about any guidance she needs later on. I, as a mother have had to get rid of my awkwardness and sat her down and engaged in lengthy conversations. My daughter feels protected and comfortable and will not need to seek more comfort irresponsibly with men.
I agree with @Maya. Being open with daughters is much better. They will feel comfortable about discussing their lives with you, and know that they can seek help if necessary. It is complicated and awkward, but quite necessary. No one can control teenagers and their raging hormones so it is best to be prepared.
Given the current scenario where children are open to so many sources of information, it is always advisable to educate children about sex issues at the proper age. This will make them less curious and well prepared!
Talk Talk Talk. I have given a trying time to my mother I know that. And this is why what I feel is, when you talk to her, befriend her and make her feel comfortable, you win the game of take her to confidence and everything from here works well.
