Dh says 12-13, I was thinking 11-12 years old. What about you guys?
I would say before school starts and what I plan to do is just have a fun day out with ds and then have the talk over dinner.
Quoting Anonymous: Im not sure. Im still wondering how to approach the "Good touch, bad touch" conversations.
I don't believe in having one conversation, it started when he was old enough to know proper names for sexual anatomy and will continue until he has no more questions to ask.
depends on what kind of sex we are talking about. My kids are six... it has pretty much been limited to "Don't let anyone see you naked, touch your privates and tell you that you shouldn't tell mom about it..."
Depends on the kid. One was 12, the other was 10. My girls are still little so I'm not sure when that'll come up.
I know that dh and I are planning on several talks about this but I was thinking on when would be a good time to start.

I started with my kids early, because I didn't believe in lying to them. They still don't know everything, buy my 11 year old knows all the mechanics of it anyway. Most kids have already heard plenty of stories from their classmates at school by 9 or 10, and I had several classmates who were already having sex in the 6th grade (one girl got pregnant). See:
