Mommy how is a baby born

  1. 1. Mommy, How Is a baby Born?<br />By – Dr.Hemant Mittal (MBBS, PG.DPM)<br />Emotional, behavioral and<br /> sexual health consultant<br />Email –<br /><br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  2. 2. The Awakening…<br />“Riya started her periods, now I am worried when should I talk to her about… you know!!”<br />“Ishant’s pajamas were dirty with sperms this morning. I wonder what’s going in his mind?”<br />“I saw Lavina talking with a guy, for god sake’s she is 16, I don’t want her to become pregnant!”<br />“I saw adult videos and photos on Bhusan’s mobile phone. I don’t know what to do?”<br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  3. 3. Sex…The dreaded topic?<br />Every week I get emails, phone calls and personal visits from teachers, lawyers, doctors, accountants, housewives and businessmen…all united by a common problem… <br />“how to talk about SEX with their teenage child”<br />“The Sex Talk” is one of the toughest and most delicate milestones of parenthood. <br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  4. 4. The Big Failure<br />Unfortunately in context of India and the traditional Indian society, I have found that 90% parents miserably fail in delivering a successful “The Sex Talk”<br />What instead is communicated is an erroneous message which confuses the child and in many cases encourage him/her to experiment.<br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  5. 5. The reality<br />Every year the Indian Teenagers are becoming more and more sexually active.<br />The biggest marker of the same is:<br />The rise in number of teenage pregnancies,<br />Increase in sale of emergency abortion pill or “ipill”<br />Increase in number of young cases with HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.<br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  6. 6. Why “The Sex Talk” fails?<br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  7. 7. 1. Children have more information!<br />In today’s world information travels at the speed of light. <br />Children get all their information from Friends, Television and Internet.<br />Parents normally lack many answers. Specially those parents who are having sexual problems themselves. <br />Questions that are never answered- What is the truth? Who is to be followed? Why does my body and mind get pleasure from it? <br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  8. 8. 2. Parents don’t talk, dictate!<br />Most kids that come to me for “sex education counseling” have a simple grudge – <br />“I might talk to them for hours, but in the end they just tell me what to follow. <br />They never listen to me. <br />Never explain anything in MY terms. <br />Its always them and their ways of living life.<br />Why should I follow?<br />I want to do what my friends say!”<br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  9. 9. 3.Moral Values?<br />Every parent preaches about “Moral Values and Religious Beliefs”…But no one cares to explains there meanings to the child. <br />Every Religious Belief and Moral Value has a valid explanation… and until that explanation is not given the belief or value will never be imbibed by the subconscious.<br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  10. 10. Common questions children have asked me:<br />“God created sex, then why does religion say that a man and woman shouldn’t have sex before marriage?” <br />“Masturbation is bad because religion says so. But I can't control it. And when I do, I have night fall. Am I a sinner.”<br />“My Parents say that thinking about a boy is bad. But then why do they show it in TV serials and movies”<br />“When I see a kiss on TV I get a penile erection. My mom told me its bad. How can I control it?<br />“My parents told me sex is bad before marriage, but oral sex is not complete sex. Can I have that?”<br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  11. 11. 4. No Biological Explanation!<br /> “Penis, Testis, Vagina, Breast, Uterus, Cervix, Sperm, Masturbation, Periods, Penile erection, Vaginal excitation, Oral sex, Homosexuality, Date Rape”<br />90% parents will turn red-faced while 95% kids will giggle on mere mention of these words.<br />How can a kid know what to do and what not to do if he/she doesn’t know about their own body?<br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  12. 12. 5. The wrong Expert<br />Most parents who want to avoid talking about sex, leave the topic of Sex Education onto teachers and the education system.<br />Unfortunately teachers are overworked and many a times under knowledge on this topic. They don’t answer all queries of every single child. <br />Many parents feel shy or tabooed on talking to Sex Therapist or Sexologist to guide them on this issue.<br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
  13. 13. “Knowledge is the best prevention…<br />But what if the knowledge is not given properly…???”<br />Dr.Hemant Mittal / <br />
