I went to the library today and checked out "its not the stork", "why boys and girls are different", "everyone has a belly button", and "what's the big secret". I wasn't sure which book or books id use but I just grabbed some and figured id look them over before choosing. They're all basically the same. Some talk about touching and that its ok to ask someone not to touch you, bad touches vs feel good touches...

I'm not sure what I expected but I didn't get it. Lol.

I was not expecting any of them to go into detail of what sex is (a few goes into detail about the man putting his penis in the girls vagina and it feeling good , him ejaculating, etc). Masturbation...


I'm not at all as ready for this as I thought. I talked to DD today (she's 6) and told her wed read them and id answer any questions she had tomorrow, when SO is off work and can entertain the younger kids. I explained this is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed of but I did not want her talking to other kids about anything we discuss because their parents may not be ready for them to know these things.

she is still very eager to learn about it but I'm freaking out inside. Haha.

That's what we told DD too. Then she came home saying her BFF was preg because she hugged a boy in class.

My kids know regular hugs won't do it. But the oldest really wants to know how it works.

Personally, I wouldn't give much detail to a child that age. :)

I will not have a temper tantrum nor stomp across the floor.


I will not pout, scream or shout or kick against the door.

I will not throw my food around nor pick upon another.

I’ll always try to be real good because I am the mother.

I am the mother.

I am the mother.

Wow!  I have 3 kids.  Ages 10, 8, and 5.  We haven't had the talk yet.  My mom never talked to me about sex.  She never even showed me how to put makeup on or paint my nails or any stuff like that.  I don't really know why.  She was present and so was my dad my whole childhood.  I guess she was just too shy to do it or maybe I grew up so fast that she didn't have a chance.  Who knows but I was waiting until my 10 year old is a few years older so that my youngest boy can sit in on the talk too.  It's going to be a very basic conversation and if they have questions after that then I will have DAD to answer them.  LOL!  I will also probably wait until my daughter is 10.  I don't think there's any reason for them to know anything now.

I really liked the "It's not the Stork" series...if you're not getting what you want from that one, get the next age level up, depending on what she's hearing that you want to correct!

It was pretty easy here...one of the perks of being an Aspie and having a scientifically (and artistically) minded Aspie daughter.

"When two people of the same gender fall in love, they find ways to make each other feel good together, just like people of opposite genders.  It's part of how all human beings bond to each other when they fall in love and decide they want to be together."

She asked questions after that, and knowing her I explained kissing and manual touching and said, "There are other ways, but I bet if I start telling you, you'll get grossed out."  She insisted, I moved on to oral sex and she got grossed out.

It really was easier for us, because at age 5, she was present for her niece's birth and knew all about it, and at 6 this was the child who while filling out a number chart came downstairs to show me how she'd made the number 8 into a little chick..."Here's the legs and wings and beak and his eye..." and the nine into an embryo.  "See, here is the eye and the umbilical cord and the arm buds...it's not a fetus yet..."
