Parents often make the mistake of thinking their children are younger than they actually are because kids do grow up really fast. Seriously, one day you're changing diapers, and next you're giving them advice on dating while in high school.
The transition from toddler to teenager is by no means easy, especially when it comes to teaching your child life skills that will come in handy as they get older. This includes educating them about sex.
Most children, usually from grade six onward, will receive some form of basic sex education through school or their parents (usually after they've started asking questions like, "where do babies come from?").
However, there are some parents that think teaching a child about the birds and bees should start even earlier.
Justin Timberlake and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, are an example of parents who firmly believe that starting sex education early on is much more effective than delaying it until they're older.
Timberlake and Biel welcomed their first child, a son named Silas Randall, back in 2015, but he's rarely seen because the proud parents have been carefully protecting him from the media. But that doesn't mean they don't get to talk about him when the opportunity presents itself.
Biel recently appeared at the 2018 MAKERS Conference in Los Angeles, and shared a tidbit about how they're introducing two-year-old Silas to sex education.
