What to talk about after the sex talk

I am a big proponent of talking about sex in an age-appropriate way with your children. My son knows that he can ask me questions and he will get honest explanations. He knows the correct anatomical names for body parts, he understands how babies are born and he even understands the basics of how breast milk is made. As he gets older, we will continue to have frank conversations about sex.

We will also continue to have conversations about love.

My husband is a good, kind man who treats me with love and respect. We are partners in this world. And while our relationship is a wonderful model for our son to have, it may not be enough. Because, the truth is that parents sometimes get so concerned around having "the sex talk" they forget to discuss other important topics including how to have healthy relationships, respect and love.

I can understand how parents would be so focused on getting through the anatomy of sex that they forget to discuss all the other parts of a relationship, but they are also important topics of conversation: Children need to know what a healthy, loving partnership looks like and the way to maintain it.

And, just like talks about sex, that is not a one-and-done conversation either.

Which do you find easier: Talking to your children about sex or talking to them about healthy relationships? Tell me in the comments.
