Two words that can cause any parent to become immediately anxious, sweaty, nauseous, tongue-tied, weepy, or a combination of all of the above!
It is not necessarily going to be comfortable, but it does have to happen! (EEK!) I recently read a book that was written so well--it discussed puberty, sex, and babies in a straight forward and totally approachable way. I thought it was age appropriate and was broad enough that it allowed for questions and conversation. (again, not comfortable--but necessary!) And I loved that it is directed at both boys and girls.
And check out these illustrations! I thought they are super cute, but they are also anatomically correct and allow for an educated discussion. Nicely done, Ms. Cravath!
When the time comes for you to have *THE* Talk, you might consider a book like this.
