"When it comes to learning an instrument, or mastering driving, cooking, playing a sport, or becoming fluent in a foreign language, this type of training is the norm. We would never expect someone to instinctively excel at, let alone enjoy, these things without at least some routine instruction or study.

Yet when the topic is sex, something that is arguably more nuanced and complicated than many other life skills, we often assume that putting similar structures for instruction in place will be harmful to young people, or will encourage risky behavior."

I kindly told her that we are perfect with our miracle girl and that’s when I heard the comment I’ve grown to hate: “She can’t be an only child!”

I took a deep breath and replied, “She’s not."
