Things People Should Know #20

Most people find it easier to have sex than to talk about it. However, amusing Monty Python skits aside, teaching your children (or other people's) by having sex with them watching is not an age approriate teaching method. Now, the boyfriend's statement seems to imply he viewed it as less of a learning opportunity and more of a it's natural so we're not going to hide it thing. Which I sort of get. Sure, they've been talking over at Lipstick Chronicles about how to continue a happy, healthy sex life post-kidlet. And certainly parents should not have to only have sex when they are under a different roof from their children. But there is an important difference between not padlocking the door and encouraging your child to hang out with you while you have sex. Somehow I don't think that's what people mean when they talk about quality time with your child.
