When you think back to what you were taught about your female anatomy, starting your first period, and issues with reproduction, there was probably a lot of information missing. Now that you have a child, it can make this a very different experience for them.
If you’re a parent that homeschools, I would like to introduce you to my series of books that prepare kids for puberty.
Let’s make sure that our 11+ age sons and daughters understand what hormones are and how they are affecting their body now that they are in puberty.
Your 8-10 year old son may feel some confusion when he learns that sperm are made in the testicles and then come out the end of the penis. There isn’t an obvious pathway from one place to the next.
If your son is ten years or older, he is likely noticing changes happening in his body. Puberty is the time when testosterone begins to have obvious effects in his skin, muscles, and of course, his reproductive structures.
