Modeling Positive Sexual Behavior

QUESTION

Dear Sexperts,
I read in your book that mothers need to model positive sexual behavior for their kids. What do you mean when you say that?

ANSWER

Cathy: Children learn what it means to be an adult by watching their parents. When they see a happy, sexually-fulfilled mom who conducts relationships consistent with her own values, they learn that sex is natural and they stand a better chance of forming mature relationships of their own some day.
