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!
