Set Expectations Now
Up until now, it has mostly been about giving accurate information and not so much about rules. Figure out what kind of expectations you have for your child surrounding parties, sex, health, and safety and talk them over before they go out and break them. Consider rules about parties, curfews, and safety. The truth is that you can’t stop your child from being interested in sexual exploration, but you can try to keep them out of situations that put them in the position of having to make such a choice.
