Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita says that when it comes to the birds and the bees she made sure that daughter Ashley Holmes, 19, had all the right information.
I already had a whole sex talk with her. I knew she was dating an older guy, and I’m not going to be in denial like a lot of parents like, ‘Oh, not my kid!’
is it just me, or do most of us have the ‘sex talk’ with our kids way before age 19? Oh well, better late than never, and it sounds like Jacqueline’s intentions are all good.
The reality star made sure that her daughter knew all about the risks, too, telling UsMagazine.com that she made sure their chat included lots of details about the dangers of STDs.
“I showed her every disease manual I could find and made her watch all the scary movies,” she says. “I tried to scare her first.”
Jacqueline, who had son Nicholas Francis in June 2009, says she thinks her openness with her daughter will encourage her to make smart decisions in the future. “My daughter tells me the truth,” she says. “When I ask her, she is very honest with me, and we have that honest relationship.”
