Quotation by Patricia Farrell

As a parent, you can play three important roles in teaching your children about sex. As a model for your child, your own comfort level can instill a sense of confidence and trust that will reinforce his or her healthy curiosity about the world. As an information source, you can make sure that curiosity is satisfied with clear and accurate facts about the body, the sexes, and how babies are made. Finally, as a guide to values, you can guarantee that the messages your child receives about sex are invested with the family values you want to instill.
