How many times have you had someone say don’t touch that!! Or what about something as simple as DO NOT LOOK UP! Haha did you just look up? I bet if you didn’t, you want to just because I told you not to. It doesn’t matter how old we are when given a demand rather than following suit. It’s almost like a brain game!
Does any of this sound familiar? Of course it does! When discussing sexuality steer away from words like don’t and bad. But rather ask questions and provide choices and possible outcomes. Because it is difficult to resist the rebellious voice secretly whispering in our brain, “Don’t tell me what to do!”
