I always thought I would just wait until he asked a question about sex...something I was sure was going to happen years ago (he's super inquisitive, reads biology books for fun, etc.). However, he has yet to bring it up. He just turned 9, but reads at a pretty advanced level, so I know he's getting some exposure. 'Tho books are pretty much it -- he's homeschooled & we're mostly tv-free. I'm pretty sure he knows the biology of baby-making, but I'd like him to have a sense of the emotional content of sex from his parents. At the same time, I'm worried about pushing an awareness onto him that he may not be ready for. Ugh!
Ok, so questions --
How old were your kids when you talked about sex?
Did you initiate the conversation or did they ask a question?
What did you say???
Is there anything you wish you'd done differently, or wish your parents had done differently with you?
Thanks mothering community! I always appreciate your wisdom.
