There comes a time in every child’s life when they need to learn about the birds and the bees, but for parents, it is often a very awkward conversation. 

Cut.com has released a new video showing parents teaching their children about sex for the very first time, and the results are both uncomfortable and hilarious.

The video is a great reminder that parenting isn’t always easy, and in the case of one little boy, sometimes they know much more than we think…

How old were your children when you first spoke to them about the birds and the bees? SHARE your experiences in the comments below.

  • Very humorous, thank you for sharing.


  • Hahaha I love how the one boy knew from his sibling! That is quite similar to how I learnt, from the sex ed books my older brother brought home from school!


  • I really just went with the flow. As soon as they started showing signs of being interested and asking questions, that’s when I started talking about the birds and the bees


  • ha ha too funny! i laugh now, but im approaching the age of needing to talk about the birds and the bees and im not looking forward to talking about it. I will for sure though, i think it is important to let your children know about it and understand it.


  • Ah dreading this conversation. I know its going to happen sooner rather than later. I have asked my son about his interest in girls and approached kissing etc and so far even with all the girls chasing him he isn’t interested. I find it easy to approach the topic of drugs than sex


  • sounds awesome and looks great


  • some of this reactions were funny as. my daughter is only three so this talk is off the cards for ages. I was 8 when my mum gave it to me and dont remember much of it because i was so young.


  • We have open discussions in our household.. Sex being one of them! We feel if we are open enough about things, and tell the children the real answers, and no sugar coating things…


  • Mine is too young yet.. But would be interesting.. Kids are so much more exposed to sex nowadays..


  • HAHAHAHA! So awkward but so so cute!


  • can’t say that we have totally gone there although we live on a farm and they have known alot about the basic things for a long time we have never gone into fine details


  • Thanks for sharing this video; some of the parents were far more awkward than the kids!


  • I know this is a natural topic but it was awkward watching how uncomfortable both parents and children were. I agree with others that some of those kids were a bit too young and clearly didn’t want to talk about it.


  • My son asked something about how the sperm gets into the Mum the other day, I said I will tell you later (we were in the car and I was concentrating on driving and didn’t want to explain to my younger daugter also. I forgot about it and he hasn’t asked again. I’m waiting though.

    • A similar thing happened to me…and then she remembered 3 months latter!


  • My son first asked me about sex when he was about 7. He was actually referring to ‘gender’ instead of sex as I thought which he quickly pointed out to me!! We’ve always encouraged our son to ask us about sex and explained often kids tell stories or different versions. We will always tell him the truth!
