” Some call it the tale of the “birds and the bees;” Others call it “the talk.” Regardless of what you call it, it is almost always associated with feelings of awkwardness, anxiety, and uneasiness.
“The talk” consists of a discussion between parents and their child(ren) about sex and sexuality.
If you think your son or daughter may be controlling, abusive, or violent with his or her partner, tell your child that abuse and violence are NOT acceptable and that violence will not solve problems.
The past year with him has been wonderful and I couldn’t be happier, but for much of that time I wanted to keep it to myself. I respect my parents, understand their rules and I have never really been the rebel type.
And, while your teen needs you more than ever to help them through this challenging time, they are also seeking independence and turning to peers.
While it may seem easier to let your teen shake you loose, hang on. Right now, your teen is forming relationships that set the stage for future relationships.

I told my mom a couple years ago that whenever I started dating someone again I would not tell her until I felt it was right and I wanted her to give me that respect and privacy.
She wants me to be with someone who makes me happy, healthy and secure and who knows how to communicate during both the good and bad times. I think that the problem is that my current boyfriend and I have a past that has more than a few bumps on the road to a happy ending. But I also understand its very hard for my mothers to comprehend that.
