So in preparation for "THE TALK" I've purchased some books...."American Girl guide to your body" and another about your body book. These books really just focus on puberty and what changes to expect. So no easy out for me....I have no recollection of having "THE TALK" with my Mother...I really think I found out about S-E-X- when I was 15!! (Yes, that means I was more naive than my daughter!!)
Cameron's school was showing a "Growing up" video; I had to sign a permission slip and everything....so I thought, maybe I'll get an opening for the topic....We reviewed puberty and the changes, etc. and the Wimpy one (aka me) sent her on her way. I anxiously awaited the end of the day to see
if my job was done for me what she learned about....no dice! Just....Puberty......SO not saved here!!!
One high point and something I may use for a few more
years days/weeks is Cameron reported that the girls in the class were all giggling when they heard the word "penis"...so I said to her, "Why is that so funny? Jackson has a penis and it's no big deal, right?!" To which she immediately agreed....so the new plan is to let her think that all men have baby penises....nothing interesting there....no big deal....push the sex talk back; my daughter has 0 interest in boys until she is 18.....
You think it will work? Have you had "The Talk"? Any Advice?
