Recently, I came across an article on the Internet where a Chinese Woman decided to teach her 14 year old son all about sex by using her own body as an example. She brought her son along to her gynecology exam and let her son inspect at all the parts of her body. He watched as she explained the process of sex and birth. According to her, this was the correct way to teach her son about the facts of life.
This article hit me because I too have a son who is now 13 years old and have been trying to find an effective method to discuss the similar subject with him but have been unsuccessful so far. Coincidentally, I also have my upcoming gynecology exam. Yes, You have guessed it right. I am thinking of doing the same but I'm not sure. As I'm a single mom I can't discuss this matter with my partner. I also can't share it with my friends due to it being a controversial issue. Therefore, I decided to share it here with the experts.
Should I go for it or are there other methods you can suggest? Should I even worry about teaching my son about sex and facts of life or leave it entirely to the school system?
