Handing down NFP/FAM
Do you plan to teach your kids about NFP/FAM as they grow up? If so when do you plan to first talk to them about it?

For sure with Zoe. I'll probably start when she's beginning to understand her own body more. It will probably be around the time of her first menstruation.

Courtney sort of knows something about it as she asks me about my thermometer all the time, but she doesn't really know what it all means. I plan to introduce it all to her just when the time is right, when the questions come up, etc. I'm hoping her school will introduce it somewhat as well since as far as I'm concerned she'll be in a Catholic school, we haven't officially got her in one down here yet cuz they were having parent teacher confrences the day we were gunna go.

My daughters would learn from me. I didn't get anything.

Re: Handing down NFP/FAM
I definitely plan to teach them about their bodies around the time we talk about puberty/menstruation. I probably won't get into a lot of detail about sperm survival or the rules for avoiding/achieving pregnancy until they are older...but I think it would be helpful for them to keep a very basic chart to predict when their periods will come, since irregularity it pretty typical during the first few years of menstruation. Getting caught off guard as a teen was the worst!
