Ryan is starting to bring up the topic of sexuality. he is only 12, but already knows what PornHub is and has already seen a short clip of people having sex. He wonders how the act of sex is accomplished without hurting man or woman. He wonders what happens, how it feels, what comes out, etc. How do we know this? Because he told us.
Ryan seems to be open to these conversations and somewhat encourages them. The most recent one prior to this post is Feb 2020 when we were all a Kalahari resort for a day. We had a nice dinner and he brought up the topic. It was uncomfortable as a parent and a bit embarrassing, but we were all honest and open and laughed as well. I am proud that he is willing to discuss these things with us. But it’s also sad as a dad to know your little boy is becoming a man. And that one day he won’t need advice from us as much anymore. Doesn’t matter though. I’m proud of him.
