Flashback Friday: The First Time We Had the “Talk”

Posted on November 12th, 2010

It’s Flashback Friday, so here’s another oldie, but hopefully a goodie. This one is the first time I ever had the “talk” with Junior. We’ve had the “talk” many, many more times since then, but this is my favorite instance. Because, you know, it doesn’t include the message I give him today–which is “ain’t no love without a glove.” Teenagers. gotta love ‘em, because you can’t kill ‘em.

As a parent, you know that you are going to get certain questions asked of you. Someday your teenager will come in the door and ask questions like

    Don’t we always have the best plans for doing it better than our parents, only to freeze up when the big moment comes? That is too funny!

    When I was faced with the same thing, I told my son (I believe he was around 7 at the time) I told him the 100% full truth. And I used the opportunity to teach him many things. About what God says, about societies views, etc etc. He is an extremely intelligent child. He’s 10 yrs old today and because I have always been 100% truthful with him, he can hold an intellectual conversation with the best of em’. He can discuss most anything from theology to politics to society. Parents should stop trying to coddle their kids and try to TEACH them. Maybe then the kids wouldn’t be so bad today. JMHO

    I get what you are saying, Kat. Unfortunately, my son was not ready at that time to understand everything. I do agree with you that there are many teaching opportunities which we, as parents, allow to pass by and that is extremely unfortunate. Thank you so much for reading and commenting.
