Why do we feel the need to find some subjects uncomfortable enough to be discussed honestly with children? Why are some things off limits in some homes? Maybe because our own parents chose to be uncomfortable about those things, and we have been raised believing that they were. Well, guess what? Knowledge doesn’t discriminate, people do. That is why I choose to be open with my kids about things that I, myself, was raised to believe were not acceptable to be talked openly about. I believe that it is a very dangerous game letting kids learn things from other people, quite often their peers who don’t know any better themselves, or, even worse, total strangers who might have their own agenda in mind when approaching our innocent and trusting children.
