Our school-aged children may be growing up to become more independent, but are still in need of our ongoing attention, input and guidance. This can contribute to a busy time in your life when you find yourself juggling your own career with being physically and emotionally present for your child.
The best place for a child to learn about sexuality is at home from those who care most about them. Parents are in the best position to put information about sex in the proper context and give it the right perspective over a period of years. Parents also play an important role in shaping a child's gender identity. You should continually accept and cherish your child as a boy or a girl, as determined by his or her physical sex.
You may be hit with a question from your child about where he/she comes from. Stay calm and explain to them that God formed them in their mother's womb and knew them even before they were born.
