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.
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.
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.
