This might sound gross. I ran out of tampons & sent my dh to the store. When he came back (not thinking) he slid them aacross the dr table & before we knew it, our 9 yr. old dd asked what they were for (as I told him she would) so he took her in2 the kitchen and gave her the basics and all I heard was EWWWW. I then tried to have "the talk" to our 10 yr. old ds but I don't think he was ready because he kind of avoided it, so I backed off. I know we need to have this talk soon (and am trying to prepare myself as I know it will be difficult), but should we both talk to each of them together, should he talk to our ds and I talk to our dd or vice-versa?Answer Question

Parents are still doing "the talk"? What happened to making it part of everyday life. I was pregnant with my second when my daughter was 9. We watched birth videos together during lunch all summer. Now she is grown and tells me things I don't want to hear. My husband is in charge of the major stuff with the boys, but I chime in with little facts and tidbits, especially when we are watching TV and the commercials or the content lend themselves to further explanation. These are afterall the same children who used to run naked through the house after a bath and cheer at potty training time. Girls need to know by 10 at the lastest and boys need to know by 12 so you better hurry up and start having lots of little talks.
