is it ever OK to have a birds and bees talk as a group or does it need to be done individually? Now that my sons school computer accidentally showed 6-8 seconds of sex in a pop up ad we're getting lots of questions from him on topics we've not yet discussed before. (We've kept it tame and basic with names for bodily parts, functions, breastfeeding, and that's about it) His sister is only a year behind (7 and 8) and I ordered 2 good books from amazon and am ready to get it over with but my husband said HELL NO to group q and a session, one on one only. thoughts? oh... the school deferred the incident to the class as "ask your parents" so the sudden surge of questions is likely only temporary but hey it's probably time anywayAnswer Question

Do it separately. My mother did that to my brother and I (we are exactly a year apart). She set us down at the table with the encyclopedia. I was so embarrassed.

If the daughter did not see this pop up sex thing. She does not need to be apart of this problem. But you should talk to them separately. different sex's need different talks.
