NEW YORK, NY – May 24, 2011 – Dr. Veronica Anderson, Founder and Host of health and wellness web radio talk show, Wellness for the REAL World, recently welcomed Dr. Joni Frater and Esther Lastique to be a guest bloggers on her popular website,  Dr. Frater and Ms. Lastique were tapped to discuss the subject of sex education for children in the blog titled, “Sex Ed Bootcamp: Start It At Home.”

The authors write, “There is no one that can replace a parent when it comes to instilling values into children. As a nation, we are still hesitant to talk about sexuality and sex and children are suffering as a result. Only 5% of college students report ever getting meaningful information about sexuality from their parents.”

“Teaching your children about sexuality and sex is the most difficult conversation that a parent should have with their children. It is from you that they learn to value their bodies and to understand the natural body functions that we all experience. Today’s young people have access to a higher level of information from the internet, TV, and social media. Many parents are the ones who are uncomfortable with having an intimate talk about sexuality and sex. If we can overcome our personal fears about talking about sexuality and sex, and instill positive lessons about self love, maybe we can make a difference and the deadly diseases will become smaller numbers,” they continue.
