Teens’ sexual problems are increasing day by day. The main reason behind is the lack of basic sexual knowledge. Sex education is very important for teenagers no matter how much awkward it can get. While some basics of sex education are offered through their books and classes, it is not enough. They need more practical knowledge rather than bookish lessons. Lack of it can result in teens’ sexual problems.
You never know when your child is suffering. By providing them with the most necessary sexual information you can save them from various consequences and risks.
Here we are sharing some tips by which you can save your child from any kind of sexual problems :
1.Provide Them With Necessary Sexual Education
The main root of teens’ sexual problems is ignorance and lack of sex talks. When your child reaches a particular age, you should start supplementing him with the basics of sex education.
You should tell them about what sex is, why is it important, why to do it, what is the right time and right way to do it and many more questions like that. Also make them familiar with sexual relationships, contraceptives, protection etc. Although it is not as easy as it sounds, you have to prepare your mind and take it as a responsibility.
2. Be Well Aware Of What Is Going On In Your Child’s Life
This is the most important thing you should do. Know what is going on in their life, what are they going through, what kind of relationships they are in and if they’re sexually active. Be friends with your child, he should feel comfortable in sharing his life problems with you.
Don’t be a typical overprotective parent who can’t stand their child having any kind of sexual relationships. You have to understand that sex is natural and may be overwhelming for your child when they have it for the first time. They might be experiencing new things as well as new issues. Make sure you are familiar with all that is happening.
3. What If You Don’t Have A Trusting Relationship With Your Child?
First of all, you’re not alone. Many parents can not know about their child’s sexual problems and bad experiences because they don’t have such kind of relationship with their child. Here the question arises, what can be done in such situations? How to make ourselves familiar with our child’s personal problems?
The answer is, we are living in an advanced era where technology has made everything possible. Another fact is, children these days are franker on social media platforms than with their families. You can get a general idea about their life from their social media handles. There are various applications using which you can know a lot about your child’s current situation. One such tool is Spokeo, you can find all your child’s social media profiles and then do some research by observing his posts. What kind of stuff he’s posting? Is it emotional or seems like he is in a problem? Who he is friends with? Also, know about his GF/bf and judge whether or not they’re the right persons.
Apart from it, if your child doesn’t seem in the right condition then it is important to know about the root cause of his problem. If he is not willing to tell you anything, it is the time you should come into action. You can check his phones and note down the numbers he is contacting the most. You can get every related information and background about the owner by Spokeo’s reverse number lookup. All you have to do is enter a number in Spokeo and that’s it, you could be provided with the whole information about that number. Hence, you will be able to determine if your child is surrounded by the right people or not. In the same way, you can also do email search /email lookup using Spokeo.
4. Seek Medical Help
Although prevention is much better than cure if you’re too late in addressing your teen’s sexual issue and he’s already had some bad experience then take him to your gynaecologist if needed. But before that, talk to him calmly and ask about the whole situation and ask about how it happened. Also, educate him well to prevent such things in future. Never ever make the foolish mistake of blaming your child, he might be in trauma already and you will make his condition worse. Just try to be normal and friendly.
Sex can be the weakest point of any individual especially the teenagers. At a tender age, they are not able to make the right decision and hence, suffer due to the serious consequences of bad sex.
It is totally your responsibility to check on your children and make sure they are safe and healthy.
