If your son is 5-7 years old, please take advantage of this very sweet age to begin teaching him about his boy anatomy. As soon as he enters puberty, in just a few years, he will likely be less interested in learning this important information from you with each passing year.
Talking to your 15+ year old son about sexual topics probably feels uncomfortable for you as the parent, and for him. But, there are some topics that are especially important for him to learn about to protect himself in the future. One topic is gonorrhea.
If you have an 8-10-year-old son, ask yourself these questions:
- Is my son a little more emotional than in the past?
- Is my son arguing more when I disagree with him?
It may surprise for your 11+ year old son to learn that in just a few years, when he is sexually mature, his testicles can produce about 1,000 sperm every second. The next question he may wonder is what happens to all of those sperm.
If your daughter is in that 13-year-old age group, her body has already reached sexual maturity. Now it’s time to change the topics we want her to understand so she is better prepared for choices she will need to make in her future.
