Children (especially Hayley, my oldest) are full of questions. Some of them are easy to answer like “What’s for dinner?” and others like “Am I a code 8?” (WTF is a code 8?) are just strange. But sometimes they ask tougher questions like “Why did Aunt Suzie die?” or “What is sex?”
Answering the tough questions can be stressful (sometimes I have no idea what to say or how to say it) but it’s important that kids know about topics like sex, drugs, alcohol, and grief.
On Wednesday February 1st, 2012 at 10 am PST (1 pm EST) I will be joining Dr. Deborah Gilboa (aka Dr. G – @askdocg) over at The Motherhood for a live chat to discuss talking to your kids about the tough topics.
Here’s a video from Dr. G with a little more information on the talk:
Please head over to The Motherhood, register for the live chat on talking the tough topics with kids and I’ll see you there on February 1st at 10am PST!
Some more details: It’s an hour long chat and it’s typing only so you can stay in your pajamas and you don’t need to brush your hair.
Over at One Martini at a Time we are featuring a Chocolate Pomegranate Martini. You know you want to try it this weekend.
