Have you ever struggled with having the birds and the bees talk with your children?
What is a good age to approach the subject? Do you wait until they ask? How have you spoken to your children about it? What are some tips you have for parents having the same talk with their kids?
Patch's feature, "Parents Talk," is meant to help build a community of support for families in Fairfield County through active discussion of important issues. Each week, we'll introduce a new topic and hope you'll participate in the conversation, which will be moderated and furthered by select parent council representatives in your town. Comment threads will close after the weekend.
Please use the comment box below for questions, or to share your experiences and the lessons you have learned. Please also submit questions or topics for future discussions to Associate Regional Editor Liz Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org and Regional Editor Michael Dinan at email@example.com.
And if you'd like to join our parent council, let us know.
