I am a single mom and my son's dad is pretty much non-existent in his life, and there are no other good male role models to turn to. My son is 14 and I know he will soon be going through puberty. He has ASD(Autism Spectrum Disorder) and is somewhat immature, he is bright, but even though he is 14-maturity wise, I would say he is probably about 9 or 10 at the oldest. He has no modesty, and although I tell him he needs to get dressed/undressed in his room or the bathroom, he will still sometimes do so in front of me or my mother. So I know he has not started going through a lot of the changes he will yet. The only real notice I have seen is that he is starting to get hair on his upper lip.
I need some help! I am not a prude, bt discussing puberty with my son is something that I am dreading. I have no idea where to start, what to say, etc. I know what all they go through, and I even got a book that is aimed at the kids for him, but he is legally blind and the print in it is too small for him to read. Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!!!
