If you’re a parent that homeschools, I would like to introduce you to my series of books that prepare kids for puberty.
We are so careful to make sure that our daughters are ready for their first period. But after they start having regular monthly periods, they have likely reached the end of puberty and have entered sexual maturity.
If you have adolescents who are 15+ years old, they have likely reached sexual maturity. Now it is time to keep the teaching going, but at a new level. This age group is often more challenging to get their support for your teaching attempts, but the topics will definitely be of interest to them.
If your daughter is 5-7 years old, this is the best time to begin to teach her about her girl anatomy. She will likely have lots of interesting questions and she won’t be as shy as she might be in just a couple years as she enters puberty.
It is always interesting to have talks with small groups of girls who have recently started having regular periods. They cautiously make their way into a questioning time about how boys are different. They almost sound like they feel guilty asking me about this.
