Summary
This research was conducted in order to examine how (and if) parents speak to their young children about sex and sexual orientation. The study looks at private interactions between children and parents to address the question: How do parents talk to their young children about sex and sexual orientation? A survey containing about 80 questions was given to a sample of 300 survey participants (mothers and fathers of children ages 3 to 6 years old), randomly selected from an online survey panel. The questions were aimed at gathering general demographic information, comfort level with talking about sex, topics concerning sex that parents have talked or intend to talk to their children about, and parental response to gendered sports and toys. This study identifies when conversations about sex and related topics are beginning, whether parents feel these ages are too young to begin such conversations, what the parents are saying to their children, and where parents agree and disagree with each other across demographic variables. Review of the findings demonstrates for American parents the ways in which they and other parents speak to their young children about sex and sexual orientation, and how and when they are having these conversations
