Q:

How can I talk to my preteen about sensitive topics like sex and relationships?

Hi everyone,

I'm a parent of a 12-year-old girl and I'm struggling to figure out how to talk to her about sensitive topics such as sex and relationships. I want to be a supportive and understanding parent, but I'm worried about saying the wrong thing or overwhelming her with too much information.

I grew up in a family where these topics were taboo and not discussed openly, so I don't have much experience in this area. I want to make sure that my daughter feels comfortable coming to me with any questions or concerns she may have regarding these topics, but I'm not quite sure where to start.

Does anyone have any advice or tips on how to approach these conversations with her? Are there any resources or books that you would recommend for me to read to better understand how to communicate with preteens about these sensitive topics? Any guidance or insights would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
