Puberty for son and daughter

Cynthia - posted on 05/06/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




How to talk to children about puberty? My son is 12 and my daughter is 11 years old. I am not sure how to talk to my kids about puberty? I'm a single mom, I can talk about it with my daughter but what about my son? I don't know what it's like for a male to go through puberty.

There is a book called "What's Happening to me" - both a boy and girl version. They are a great resource, and written in easy to understand language to give to the kids to read too. My son's father is not in the picture and I have always been the primary carer, and although I am remarried, I was definitely the better person to talk to him. This book was great and it really helped. I am just about to use the girls version to help my 9 year old daughter with it all, although she is already pretty across most of it.
