Sex education and public edification

“Children love the idea that they harbour secret knowledge of the strange world of adults. They enjoy making us squirm. It is understandable when you spend most of your time being told what to do by people bigger than you, whose priorities have little to do with your own.

I’m not surprised that my sons have developed an interest in human sexuality, however innocently expressed. I remember having the same giggly conversations in the playground. Apart from offering information when they ask for it, I ignore their banter and occasionally go off for a quiet laugh in the corner.”
