I'm a sex educator, and right now I'm designing some classes for parents on how to talk with middle school age youth about sex. I would love to include some quotes (anonymously, of course!) about how youth actually feel about talking with their parents about sex. If any of you could give your thoughts on these two questions about how it is for you right now (if you're in middle school) or how it was for you (when you were in middle school), I'd love to hear them.
1. What are your parents expectations about you and your sexual activities? How do you feel about that?
2. Is talking with your parents about sex good/bad/hard/somethingelse?
