Sometimes out of frustration parents tend to shout on their kids and beat them or just ignore them by giving them the silent treatment to make them learn something which is actually an easy way with a lot of negative outcomes affecting your child’s mental health later in life causing them to acquire sociopathic, psychopathic and narcissistic traits.

This is an illustration by John Holcraft depicting that some parents are just “too controlling” when it comes to their child’s life – they just feel that they have to decide everything and the child herself/himself has no say in their life.

There are few things in life that you are better off explaining to your child then the internet and your children’s equally inexperienced and clueless friends. I hope you are catching the pulse of my words and you totally get it that I’m talking about you having a proper “sex talk” with your child nevertheless the “relationship talk” is equally important.
First and foremost I would like to mention that the sex talk shouldn’t be a one-liner stating – “ sex after marriage”. As a parent, you should educate yourself properly to educate your child in the biological, psychological and social aspect of sex-ed and educate your child in a way that does not involve slut-shaming.
After all, sex is a part of life and you shouldn’t consider it a taboo otherwise the prize your child may have to pay for you to avoid an uncomfortable conversation can be huge. Knowledge is power and it will protect your child from sexual abuse.

Being your child’s friend is one decision you will never regret. It will be a life-changing experience for you and your blossom. No doubt friendship between parents and children is close to impossible but if you manage to fill the gap then it will do wonders to your life and unquestionably keep the child in you alive.
