Jane Fonda doesn’t want you to make the same mistake she did and not talk to your kids about sex. The 74 year old actress is writing a sex ed book for teens because she’s just as qualified as I am to talk about sex ed (not qualified). But hey isn’t that the point, why should we need qualifications to talk about sex so long as we aren’t spreading bad advice etc. Go Jane, between you and Dan Savage you’re giving all of us unqualified sex ed enthusiasts hope!
“I did very badly as a parent,” Fonda said. “I was not good. I think I was a few years too late. But I didn’t know enough at the time – that it’s not about waiting and then having the quote-unquote big talk. You have to start young, when they’re young, and in an age-appropriate way to begin to talk about things sexual so it’s no big deal.”
