You couldn’t wait to bring that little bundle home from the hospital, could you? Then you couldn’t WAIT until they said their first word… oh what a glorious day that would be, when they could speak. Now the conversations, though no less important, are very different and in some cases, tough to have. But shirking our responsibility by not having them is just not good parenting. We must talk about those tough topics, ask questions, give guidance and LISTEN!
So here’s a look at a few of the talks you should be having with your kids, early and often. Of course there are others like the future, their dreams, goals and aspirations to add in there too.
Watch the video and them let me know.. do you agree with what I said about the S-E-X talk? When did you first broach the subject? Has it gotten easier to talk about it? What about the other topics? And what do you most want to know about your kid that they seem to be reluctant to share?
Lemme hear ya!

I’m thrilled to be partnering with Hallmark in 2012 for its “Life Is A Special Occasion” campaign. Of course, the characters in my rantings are real and the opinions are all my own.
