Are you a little surprised that your 8-10-year-old son has become more emotional and little more moody recently? This is one of the first signs most parents notice that something is beginning to change in a big way.
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.
