Knowledge about sex is important if they want to have sex with someone. They should know that condoms are important! Sex can be really great in that age, but there are many risks involved like catching an infection or even pregnancy. If you don't want to end up with a STD (sexually transmitted disease) or with an unwanted baby, using a condom is the best way. No unmarried teenager would want to tell her parents that she’s pregnant or has herpes.Women often think that it's the man's job to use a condom while boys think that contraception is a woman's duty. They both are wrong, it takes two people to have sex, so both the partners should take the responsibility and make a joint effort.
Parents are the most important sex educators of their children. Talking about sexuality with your children is challenging. Sometimes parents are scared about talking too much too soon. No parent is an expert on sexuality to have meaningful conversations with their children, and every parent can and should share his/her values about sexuality, relationships and respect for others. It is important to talk about it as kids need to know how their bodies function, how to prevent pregnancy and disease transmission.
Sex education is also an important process of building trust with your child. You need to tell children that desire is one of the joys and wonders of being human, but it takes a long and gradual time to know how to handle it. They also need to be told that sexuality is a natural part of adolescence, though it doesn't necessarily mean beginning of sexual activity.
