What age is a good age to have "the talk"? What are some signs you are/will be looking for to lead you to the decision that it's time? How young is too young?
My girlfriend has a 10 year old son. Surely too young to even be thinking about sex, right? WRONG!! She left him alone in the kid's room of her home with a little girl that is one of his very best friends. She always thought it was kind of weird but the girl is a little tomboy and super sweet and they play video games together.
She decided to surprise them with a snack and when she went into the room she discovered them kissing.....without pants on....both of them. After throwing the bagel bites all over the floor and screaming, she immediately called the girl's mother and told her what happened. The girl's mother wanted to just ground her and tell her what she did was sooo not okay but my friend wanted to have the talk with her son.
It seems to me that the age of experimentation is getting younger and younger as the years go on. So, how young is too young? Should we wait for them to learn it in Sex Ed?
