It is almost that time...time for the talk. I am getting really nervous. I know for a scientific stand point he will be fine. He may even find the concepts interesting. The talk itself will be fine. It is life after the talk I fear. Its like he will be so grown. Too grown. I know many of you Momma's have boys older than mine (he is 10). Any advice? I want him to understand all the ins and outs I just want him to be my innocent little boy as long as possible also..

We have already discussed deoderant, and pimples, and body hair but that is as far as we have gotten in all of that..

My son is four and we have started with little bits of the talk. Just be open about it let him lead the conversation. Maybe ask him what he knows already and go from there

when he has questions about anything about any topic he always asks. So I *think* I know all that he knows.

My son is 13.  He's a really quiet, mature kid.  My husband and I have both been talking to him about this stuff for years, and he hates it because he's embarrassed, but when his 10 year old cousin (who is a total handful) asked him questions, he gave him so advice and then told my SIL what her son was asking about.  Very proud of him.

My son is 9 and knows practically the whole process behind how a baby is made. We started explaining the concepts early and got more detailed as he got older and asked different questions. He is a naturally curious child.

I did consider telling him that part sooner. BUT we have been ttc for 7 years. My son is a really pratical thinker and I think if he knew what sex was he would prob be like "you guys should have sex so I can have a little brother or sister" Maybe I am wierd but I dont want to hear that out of my sweet little boys mouth just yet.

That is cool. The only time my son ever got embarrassed about anything was when the school nurse had a deodorant talk with the class. We had already discussed it at home. He does not need it yet, but we have agreed that if he wants it, or we think he may need it we will get it for him. Hearing about it at school was uncomfortable though.
