I have a 14 year old son and a 10 year old daughter (same father- divorced 8 years ago) and have been re-married for a year and a half. New husband & I want to have our own child, but my 14 year old son is really freaking out about me having to have sex to create a new child... how do I handle this?? He has never 'caught' me in the act and I don't think he even realizes that adults who are married have sex (he thinks unless they want a child) I don't even know how to respond?

lol i am sure, but he is old enough. and i honestly can't imagine having that conversation with my kids (they are only 8 & 9)... but i think it is time to start thinking about telling him. either that or have his dad have the talk with him

How does a 14 year old not already know that married people have sex more than just to create a baby? I'm sure that's not something he wants to think of his MOM doing, but he's way past the age to know that sex is a normal part of married life.

Nobody wants to think there parents are having sex but there comes a point that we know its happening. If you want to have another baby then go ahead, he'll come to terms with it eventually.

I'm not sure I want that thought in his head... I mean I know it's normal, but I can't imagine going to sleep in his room across from ours thinking OMG they're going to have sex :( It's so awkward for me :(

let him know that two people who are married and love each other and have sex often, even if they don't want to have a baby
