Cynthia on the Birds and the Bees

Cynthia shares her thoughts on how to approach the the sex talk with your kids.

Welcome back to another episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta! Let's jump right on in.

Sooo what is the best age to talk to your children about "the birds and the bees"? In this day and age, do people even still call it that? LOL! Well call it what we like, just know that at the end of the day it's still good old fashioned sex. And having sex too early, or without the proper protection, information, and education can lead to teenage pregnancy and STDs. That's why it is so important to have the "sex conversation" with our children BEFORE they actually start having sex, not after the fact. Otherwise our "pearls of wisdom" could fall on deaf ears and be a little TOO late. We all know what that means, and from the words of my girl Sweet Brown: AIN'T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT! At least I know I don't.

Now please be clear. I don't pretend to have all the answers on raising children (and outside of taking care of my own that I was in labor with for 16 hours), I say do what works for you and your child. However, I know that this is a controversial subject, and what works for one child does not necessarily work for the other. So I was curious about what the other mothers in the world who are in the same boat with me think, and decided to ask the question on Twitter. I received answers ranging from ages 10-15 years old. This was interesting! In my opinion 10 is too young and 15 is too late. My daughter is 14 years old and is in high school. Guess what? Not only are her peers talking about sex, most of them are already having sex. Regardless of age, no one knows our children better than we do. So with having a child comes the responsibility of making every effort to support, protect, and give them the education they need to make good life choices.

Bottom line: We had sex growing up, and our children will be no different. I encourage my daughter to feel comfortable coming to me about anything and everything. I am her mother, and that's what I am here for. So now I ask you guys the same question. What do you think?Thank you all for watching! I appreciate all of you. Trust me there is more drama to come! Make sure you tune in every Sunday night at 8/7c. Only on Bravo!



Love you guys!

Phaedra: You Don't Often Come Across Hair Burglary

Phaedra Parks weighs in on Derek J's unusual case and how she won "most eccentric" in high school.

Bravotv.com: Were you glad you let NeNe and Cynthia have their discussion alone? Were you optimistic they would be able to work it out?

Phaedra Parks: NeNe and Cynthia were very close friends, and their problems had nothing to do with the rest of us. Out of respect for their relationship and privacy, I felt it was best to let them have time alone. I’m glad we did because, as history has proven, when the rest of us start interjecting and expressing opinions, things escalate very fast and usually not in a good direction. The last thing NeNe and Cynthia needed was all of us inserting ourselves into their situation.

Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Derek J came in with his burglar case? Was it the strangest case you’ve ever worked on, and, if not, what case was the strangest?

PP: I wasn’t surprised at all, as we live in a very litigious society. The number of frivolous lawsuits has increased significantly in recent years and gets more interesting as the years go by. Derek J has worked very hard to become very well known in his field. Unfortunately, this makes him a target for people who are looking for money, fame, and/or attention. Too often, people access money, fame, and/or attention by making sensational claims/accusations at the expense of those who have worked hard to achieve success and notoriety. I have to say this is probably one of the more unusual cases I have been involved with; you don’t often have people being accused of hair burglary. It’s not every day that you have to counsel someone who has been accused of high jacking some used hair extensions.

Bravotv.com: Why did you win “most eccentric” in high school?

PP: I have always prided myself in taking the road less travelled and not being afraid of being different. My high school classmates voted me “Most Likely to Launch an Internet Business,” “Most Likely to be a Millionaire in 10 Years,” and “Biggest Flirt,” but when it comes to "most eccentric," I know I'd rather be a little weird than all boring -- that's just me!
