Why do we have so many first dates at restaurants? What does it mean when a romantic partner wants to cook for you? And why is it so important to share a romantic meal on Valentine's Day? It all goes back to the days of hunting and gathering. But nowadays, romantic meals are more likely to happen in fancy restaurants than around open fires.
You can tell them to do their homework or scold them about breaking curfew. But how do you talk to your kids about sex? And when should you tell them? We ask the experts about how to broach the birds and bees to your children.
When do you teach kids about the birds and the bees? Psychoanalyst Joyce McFadden says if your child is old enough to identify her earlobe, then "she's old enough to know what her vulva is." When do you teach your kids about sex and sexuality? And how much do you tell them? How did your parents tell you about sex, menstruation, masturbation, and gender differences? Or did you learn from school, church, or your friends? And how does growing up in Las Vegas, with its sexualized attitude, affect how kids understand sex and sexuality? Tell us your story. Experts around the nation weigh in.

And how do shifting societal standards (like women getting married later in life) change expectations and choices for those in the LDS Church? Are you Mormon? We want to hear from you.

But some groups say that isn't enough - Planned Parenthood isn't allowed to go into classrooms and teach teens. Another group is turning to local pastors to educate young people in church. How do we teach our kids about sex? How much should they know? Does education increase or decrease the risks of pregnancy and STDs? Do our kids not know enough... or more than we think? And how much of that is correct? Are you a teen or parent - what do you think about sex ed? We want to hear from you.
