Teaching Kids About SexFHE Lesson
Lesson by Stacey Empey, Digitized and Adapted
ByLaraGoold
Materials needed:
Scriptures, the book, “
The Wonderful Way Babies Are Made
” by Larry Christensen (or other book of your choice—see recommendations on page 9)
Purpose:
To teach family members, who are ready, the basics of sex from a gospel perspective. I recommend thislesson be given on a one-to-one basis with a child. Guidelines are listed on page (4) to help you determine when the righttime is.
Preparation
: It is important to be familiar with the material you would like to teach. Preread the lesson outline, the book, and any other resources you will find helpful (recommended articles and books are listed on page 9). Know whatyou would like to cover, but be willing to be flexible depending on your child’s reactions and questions. Set the tone for this discussion by explaining that you are going to be talking about something very special and that you are very excitedabout the chance you have to talk about this special subject together. Throughout the discussion, mention gently andlovingly how special this subject is, even if other people joke and make fun. Encourage questions and discussion aboutanything the child would like to ask, especially about things they may be hearing from others.Throughout this outline, continually encourage discussion and comment from your child. Definitely open your discussion with a sincere prayer to help you communicate well.
Scriptures:
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall 
 
cleave unto his
 
wife: and they shall beone flesh.”
Genesis 2:24
 
Opening song and prayer:
“A Happy Family
”, Children’s Songbook, page 198
Lesson:
 
Ask:
Who were the first people on the earth? (Adam and Eve)
Display
: the picture of Adam and Eve.
Ask:
Are Adam and Eve the same or different?
Ask:
What makes them different? (male and female)
Display:
The picture of Noah with the Ark 
Ask of each animal
: Do you think these two (elephants) are the same or different?
Ask:
What makes them different? (male and female)
Explain
: Everyone on the earth is either a boy or a girl. It is important to realize that both boys and girls are special andthat Heavenly Father loves every single one his sons and every single one of his daughters.
 
Formoreready‐to‐printFHElessonsvisithttp://thegoldenseven.blogspot.com.
Ask 
: Why did Heavenly Father place both a male and female on the earth at the beginning of the creation? Why did heinstruct Noah to put both make and female animals on the ark? (because males and females are essential to HeavenlyFather’s plan for us and this earth. )
Show:
The simple diagram of the Plan of Salvation (page 7)
Briefly Summarize (1-2 minutes
): the Plan of Salvation, emphasizing entering this earth life through birth
Explain:
Your discussion is going to be about birth, this marvelous way each special son and daughter of HeavenlyFather is able to come to this earth.
Read
the highlighted section of the Family Proclamation (page 8)
Discuss
each sentence and what it means. We accepted this plan, have been commanded to have children within the beautiful bonds of marriage, and know that this special power is a gift divinely given to us from our Heavenly Father.This power, the power of procreation, is a special sacred power to create new life. Explain to your child that s/he isgrowing up and therefore you want to have this special discussion about more of the details about how this special power of procreation works.
Read together
:
The Wonderful Way Babies Are Made
,” by Larry Christensen (or other book of your choice) Use thelarge and/or small text, depending on how many discussions you’ve had, the age of your child, and how detailed you wantyour current discussion to be. Take time with the book, answering any questions and responding to any comments. I endat page 39.
Ask 
your child if they have heard anything from friends or at school about this subject. Discuss anything your childwishes. Point out that sometimes, because children do not fully understand our Heavenly Father’s plan or all the details of how procreation works and how special it is, they will make fun of it or make jokes or rude comments, or use ugly wordsto talk about it, etc. Talk about any of these things that your child may have heard. Explain that now that you have hadthis discussion, your child is grown up enough to understand the details, realize how special this subject is, and how thatsuch jokes and language would not be used by someone with that knowledge.Point out that, because this is such a special subject, it is not something you talk about everywhere with everyone.Emphasize to your child, however that he/she can always come to you with any questions or concerns they may haveabout this subject. You will always be receptive to discussing whatever may be asked. Assure your child that even if youdo not know the answer to a question, you will be sure to find out and get back to them with the answer.
Closing song:
“Families Can Be Together Forever”,
Children’s Songbook, page 188
 Closing Prayer
: Close with a sincere prayer, giving thanks for the power of procreation and praying for the ability toalways have open communication between you and your child.
