Wow, back-to-back Cast of Dads podcast posts! I guess we are slowly getting back into our groove. Episode #39, “Having THE Talk” was focused on pretty much one thing – having “the talk” with your kids. While some of the Cast of Dads have kids still in diapers, others have graduated to the parenting of young adults, and some of us have kids that are just hitting that inquisitive age and the time when parents need to start explaining about the birds and the bees.
The topic of “sex” is always a challenge for any parent to discuss with their kids, regardless of the age of the children. But it is a critical one to have. You need to be consistent and have thought about your answers well before the questions are even asked. And how you answer definitely depends on the age of the child. Collectively, we bring 13 of these possible conversations to the mix, as well as a mixture of boys and girls. On this podcast, we discuss some of the conversations we have had, and our strategies for answering them well (or not).
Also, we will be announcing our first ever Cast of Dads giveaway, sponsored by Intel. Be sure to listen to this and upcoming podcasts to learn how you could win a Dell Inspiron Duo!
Note: we are always looking for sponsors! If you would like to sponsor an individual episode or a series of episodes, please do let us know.
