“What should I tell my kids about sex?” | Simcha Fisher.

Most important parts:
“There is so much here that one thing is clear: there is no such thing as The Talk, singular.”

“This education has to begin at an early age, in an age-appropriate way. One reader sums it up this way: “5-year-olds need to understand what modesty is, and why our bodies need to be given an appropriate amount of respect. 7-year-olds need to be able to ask questions (and get answers) when they see “weird” magazine covers at the grocery store. 10-year-olds need to have some understanding of their biology. And so on. I don’t think there is an age that is too early to plant the seeds of modesty, purity, and chastity because it involves so much more than [sexual intercourse]. It is ultimately ordered to charity and the basic understanding that all people are created in the image and likeness of God.””

The whole article is worth the read.
