Is it just moms who are primary caregivers for children?

I am anxious to hear others suggestions for this topic. I have 2 young boys and I'm already nervous about what will happen when they become teenagers! I hope that over the years we will teach them to respect woman and that they will have a good head on their shoulders and will make responsible, smart decisions when it comes to dating. I'm dying to know what others do to help prepare their kids on dating!

And Frimbo - certainly not. There are many types of caregivers - mothers, fathers grandparents, nannys - I know many and each Patch encourages FAMILIES to be part of the discussion, but have decided to label it Mom's Talk because that is usually who will engage in the conversation - the moms - they're the ones who talk to each other in the neighborhood, over coffee or on the playground. They share the trials and tribulations with each other on raising their kids. What works, what doesn't work. But certainly doesn't mean the dads or anyone else who are raising kids can't comment here! The comments are welcome!!
