you know the talk im talking about, the one your parents/carers give you when you become a teenager, about the changes happening with your body and what men and women do with each other to make babies.
How did yours go? or have you had the talk with your kids? did you even get a talk?
As for me, it was my dad, he sat me down and tried to explain some things, i had to stop him, tell him what i knew, he was so awkward with it.
how was yours? was it the norm? did you have hilarious results?
I didn't have one. Being the youngest I heard about everything from my brother/sister, hell, even at a fairly young age I'd make my Barbies lay on top of eachother on the bed naked when they went to bed.
Oh and waking up at the middle of the night in the same bed as my parents while they were doing it kind of helped.
My dad thought the school should teach that so he never had the talk with me. Sex ed started in Grade 5 for me. We were told not to talk about it outside of the class and I remember everyone was so quiet when we went out for recess. I actually felt embarrassed as the teacher described the male body parts.
Well I've been watching while you've been coughin', I've been drinkin' life while you've been nauseous
And so I drink to health, while you kill yourself, and I've got just one thing that I can offer
Go on and save yourself, and take it out on me
Skelington never got it. He knew what sex was and how babbys were formed since he was in preschool or kindergarten after accidentally watching a porno at like 3. Learned all the words for things from school and the internet.
i feel like im the strange one, for getting a talk from my dad, like yeah there was the health classes at school, and making a penis with your hands with the overhead projector (hehehe)
Not sure I'd call it "strange". It's just one of those things that's more relegated now to the realm of education vs. parental "knowledge". And that's for the best, IMO, given that most average people just don't have the level of knowledge when it comes to sex/STDs that schools can provide. That, and parents tend to deliver those conversations with certain religious or cultural biases that schools aren't permitted to have (usually).
