my son is 8 and not all that mature eaither but we gave him a brief run down on how it works we had agreed that every year or so we just need to touch base on it see if he has questions that maybe he doesnt want to come talk to us about so we go to him . and as he grows older we get a little more invloved in what we tell him such as waiting respecting what girls say and our expectations on how he acts and handles himself with dates so on and so on so bacically age appr. talks hope that helps you

I'm assuming birds & bees too. Yes, tell him. Kids learn about it much younger now than they used to. He needs accurate information, not what the kids are telling at school. My son is the same age and he knows about it. He actually heard about it at school when he was 9 from some other kids.

Talk to him about the birds and the bees? His condition? Something else?



I am going to assume you mean the birds and the bees and say that if, as you say, he is ten maturity wise I would say it is OK to briefly without a lot of detail have a discussion with him. I know that our scouts were much more mature at ten then I was at say 12 or 13 and I was not lacking in maturity by any means at that age.
