The Doctors weigh in on whether it is healthy for parents to discuss their sex life with their children while discussing the story of a mom who says her child inquired about her sex life and asked how often she had it. In an online forum, the mom reportedly said she answered her child honestly, but she later wondered if she should have divulged these details or not.
Psychiatrist Dr. Domenick Sportelli says, "I encourage parents to talk about sex with their kids. I really want them to be open and comfortable with it, reduce the stigma. I want to take the shame out of it."
But he adds, "However, this is TMI. Too much information."
So what should parents do if their child asks a personal question like how often they have sex? Dr. Sportelli suggests responding with, "That's private between me and your father."
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry says that if a child asks about your sex life that it creates an opportunity to have a general discussion about the topic, noting that research shows that children who are more informed about sex and the proper terminology tend to feel more empowered and more likely to report any instances of abuse.
