Talking to disabled children about sex.

rmiles124 rmiles124
This may not be something I should be worried about but I want to be prepared for anything.

I'm taking custody of my little brother and hes going to be hitting puberty and hes a good looking guy, he's smart, and about six feet tall ALREADY! 12 years old. He has some mental instabilities like adhd, functional asbergers, depression, and etc. I want him to be smart when it comes to sex, use protection, treat women right and so on. Can anyone tell me a good way of approaching this? My dad wasn't exactly the greatest example of how to treat a woman. Any comments, advice, or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

I'm not sure I'd talk to him much differently than we should other children.

Just talk about things like they're normal issues. Be specific about safe sex practices, and make it an interactive conversation, possibly with hands on activities. In addition, talk about exactly what is or isn't consent, and possibly find a list to give to him (ex. badgering the answer to yes still isn't consent, should be sober, make sure to explicitly ask for consent every time, etc.) Explain polite ways of speaking to whomever he's attracted to, like what may be too personal of questions for different levels of friendship, if you feel the need to. I'm sorry that one is so vague.

Erm, anything else?

Oh yay! No problem.

Let me know if you need any more help, and how talking to him goes.
