I need some advice, my 13 year old is very upset about me her mom’s promiscuous behavior(r/Parenting)

Has the child had any sexual education yet? It may be time to pick up this book for her:

It’s Perfectly Normal

Read it yourselves, before you give it to her. Then have her mother sit her down, answer any questions she might have, and tell her seriously that sex is part of almost every healthy, loving adult relationship.

Your wife should be completely honest and straightforward with the child, making it clear that she and you will be having sex. A lot of sex. She needs to tell the child that there’s nothing inappropriate or “promiscuous” about what the two of you are doing. You are both adults, in a committed relationship with each other. This is what adults do!

Tell her that you will endeavour to be reasonably discreet about your activities, out of consideration for her delicate sensibilities, but emphasize that you do not have to hide the fact that you have a sex life or be in any way ashamed of it.

Think of it this way – you and your wife are setting an example, for your daughter, of what a healthy committed adult relationship looks like. And that includes regular sex! Because that’s how adult human beings pair bond and maintain strong ties with each other. You’ll be teaching her that sex and shame are NOT two things that go together.

This is an important lesson, which she’ll need to internalize in the next few years as she navigates her teen years and eventually becomes sexually active herself. She should never feel “promiscuous” or ashamed in any way of her sexuality, and neither should you.

She’s allowed to find sex “gross” right now. But she’s not allowed to be rude about it, to either of you. And she’s not allowed to bang on the walls to try to stop you, either!

Good luck! 🙂
