KEY POINTS

  • Amber Rose said she doesn't hide anything from her young son, Sebastian
  • She revealed she has taught her son about consent and women’s health from a young age
  • Jessica Biel has also talked about teaching kids about sex early

Amber Rose believes in educating her son from a young age about topics such as consent and periods.

In a recent episode of “Red Table Talk,” Rose revealed she has already talked about women’s health and the concept of consent with her 7-year-old son, Sebastian.

“He knows everything,” Rose told hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith, and Adrienne Banfield-Norris. “I’m not hiding nothing from my son. My son knows what a period is.”

She added that Sebastian sometimes comes into the bathroom with her to talk and will ask if she is on her period.

“I’m like, ‘No, not right now, but I will,’” Rose revealed. “And he’s like, ‘Do you need a tampon? Do you need a pad?’ I say that to say my son who is seven, and I don’t feel like it’s too soon.”

Rose said talking about periods from an early age will desensitize him by the time he becomes a teenager. Sebastian will not be shocked when he hits 13 and the girls in his class start their periods, the mom-of-two said.

Rose also shared that she used an incident where he jokingly grabbed her butt to open up a dialogue about consent.

Interestingly, Rose is not the only celebrity parent teaching their kids about sex at an early age.

In 2018, Jessica Biel said she and husband Justin Timberlake had started teaching their son Silas the basics as it will help him understand and respect himself as well as others.

“I have a 2½-year-old [and] we’re starting [sexual education] now,” Biel explained at the 2018 Makers Conference in Los Angeles, People reported. “We’re using technical terms … we shower together, and [we say], ‘This is what I’ve got. This is what you’ve got.’ We just talk about it. I know it’s really young, but I really believe that if you start this early, there’s no shame. I don’t want to tell him, ‘Keep your private parts,’ and this and that.”

“It’s a beautiful thing. You have it and mine is different and it’s cool, man. We have to respect ourselves and respect each other. So I believe it starts really young,” she added.
