  • I have never used a book. I have sat my girls down by the time they were 9 each and told them the straight truth. I didn't want them to think there was something wrong w/ discussing the body and what happens to one during sex so I was straight forward just like we were discussing anything else.
    Good luck

  • I have been using Sex, Pubertity, and all that stuff, a guide to growing Jacqui Bailey.  It talks about everything you can imagine and makes it easier to get through. It also brings up stuff you know they want to know but are embarrassed to ask

  • If it is for a girl, the American Girl series is awesome. They are too girly for boys though. We have The Care and Keeping of You which doesn't get into sex- just menstruation, but I think they have another one for the more "advanced" talk- LOL

  • when I took my son for his physical the doctor gave him some litature to read about developmental changes in boys and such. Ask your doctor to recommend something.
