How did my son learn about drugs, alcohol, STDs, birth control, and sex in school without emphasis on sexual assault?
My son met a girl this year, and they started dating. Now my "little boy" is someone’s boyfriend.
I feel like this relationship puts him in a slightly different light for me. He’s about to learn to trust someone in a new way and to care for her emotionally. She is someone’s little girl, and I want my son to treat her well.
Because of this, I decided that I wanted to talk to him about boundaries and consent. But then I got stuck.
I wasn’t sure how to approach this subject. It’s a tough one to just drop in his lap, but it’s important. When I thought about this, my mind flashed back to when he came home from school in the second grade and told me he learned about drugs and alcohol.
