When is the best age to discuss sex?

Stacie - posted on 07/13/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




My son is going into the 4th grade this school year and he'll be turning 10 in January. I'm trying to decide when to have the "sex talk" with him. I don't want to do it too early if he's not mature enough to handle it, but I also want him to hear about it from his parents before his friends. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I would open it up to a puberty talk first and see where that leads. That should give you a good indicator of how ready he is for the talk.
