I am presuming you had the body talk already but if you havent, now is the time to tie it all on with sex and pregnancies all that stuff. I know girls have a book out about this but not sure about boys.
You should have started when he was a lot younger. My kids have known about sex since they were 4/5 years old.
Definitely now would be good. My 6 year old knows because we've discussed a little each year and she's inquisitive with younger siblings so she recalls my pregnancies.
You should have already been having discussions throughout his life. He probably knows more now that you do. By sitting down and having a " formal" discussion , you will embarass both him and yourself. Has he never brought the subject up before ? If you are going to start now, be age appropiate , simple , and clear . Try to be casual , make things as light hearted as possible.
