Talking to kids about sex can be tricky. Talking to boys about sex can be even trickier. Amy Lang, a sexual health educator andauthor of Birds + Bees + Kids, saysparents need to approach the sex talk differently with boys than with girls.
For instance, she says, have the talk with your son while you'redoing something else, like playing catch together or washing dishes.And she says boys need to hear from both parents. So, moms don'ttry tohand off the duty to dear old dad!
