My son is 12 going on 13. He's been noticing and talking to girls more and more. I have asked him about his sex ed class at school and it seems that there is not much they're teaching him about it.

My worst nightmare would be to have him bring a pregnant girlfriend home.

So, I've been trying to find some stuff online that can help me to talk to him about all that stuff at home. I found a site called Time4Facts.com and it looks pretty good. However, before I pay for it - I'd like to hear from some of you who might have used it, or have other suggestions.

thanks ahead of time!
Linda

Never heard of it either. We pretty much tell them everything over a period of time from birth til whenever. Just talk to him about your values. If he is in public school, he already knows the mechanics. He might could even teach you a thing or two!

I don't know if you are looking for a Christian perspective on things or not, but Dr. James Dobson has a book that my parents used with my sister and me, called "Preparing for Adolescence" available here: http://www.christianbook.com/Christian/Boo...mp;view=details

We both (mostly) enjoyed the book, and the conversations that our parents had with us because of it. There's a lot of other stuff available through CBD as well, if you go to the Homeschool section and then the Purity and Abstinence area. But of course, it's all Christian perspective from what I've seen on that topic, so if you're not looking for Christian materials then this isn't too helpful for you! :-)

I don't know how much you have talked to your son. We do it birth on up too. Starting with personal space and privacy. I wouldn't pay for anything unless you are really uncomfortable talking about sex. These are for you to read and decided how you want to present the info to your son.
