My eight year old ds and I had the talk today. We were driving to the airport and some how the topic came up. I try to keep everything honest and age appropriate with him, but he asked a lot of questions. During the conversation he told me that one of his classmates has a girlfriend and that he says he wants to have sex with her. I explained to ds that his friend probably didn't really know what it means. We talked about waiting, birth control, using protection, diseases, how a girl gets pregnant, puberty, anal, and where babies come from. I defnitely wasn't prepared for the conversation and have no idea where he got some of his questions from. He asked about anal (didn't know the name of it) and I was shocked because I have no idea where he heard about it.
What would you do if your child brought it up? Have you had the talk yet?
