In episode 157 of The Defy Life Podcast, the guys were asked by a listener how to approach THE conversation with a sexually active teenager.
“I think my 13-year-old soon is sexually active. How do I approach the conversation?”
For most parents this is a difficult discussion to have, let alone initiate. Al, Thomas and I all advised a direct approach. Just start the conversation.
Kids can sense when we are withholding and not being vulnerable with them. So you want to be open and honest, and ask them to do the same.
It’s easier said than done, at times. However, it’s easier to get a kid to remain open then it is to regain that trust after he or she has already withdrawn.
Check out the full conversation below. Enjoy!
