How do we talk to our kids and teens about sex? I have four kids, 2 boys and 2 girls, ranging in age from 15 to 21. I am by no means an expert. But I am a mom who is doing her best, sometimes awkwardly stumbling through hard conversations, because I love my kids and I care about the adults they are becoming. This is what motivates me to want to be the one who informs my kids about sex. Not their peers, not the media, not the culture. Here’s three suggestions to get the conversations started.
It was my last day of high school. The graduation ceremony wasn’t until later, but I had more pressing matters at the moment. My friend went with me to the Pregnancy Resource Center.

As you dream about the baby you will one day hold in your arms, it’s necessary to make good decisions to protect the child growing within you.
