MOWA, Is this for a boy or girl?February 18, 2010 at 3:06 pm #89541Maria30Member
Waterstones usually have a good selection of sex ed books. You should have a look and see if any of them are suitable for you.

Its for a boy….I think its coming close to "birds and bees" time….February 18, 2010 at 6:30 pm #89554Maria30Member
Just wondering what age your son is. My eldest is 11 and I bought a book last year but havent plucked up the courage to give it to him yet. I cant remember the name of it but I ll get it out of back of press and let you know. I m not looking forward to having this chat with him at all but I know it needs to be done and probably soon. Dont want to leave it all to the school like my parents did.

From personal experience I would advise not to leave it too late to tell them.
There is a great book called Boyfacts/Girlfacts which is very useful and the selection in Waterstones is usually good (I hope) 😳 if not.
if you want anything ordered in let me know or ask any member of staff, as long as a book is in print and available we will do our best to get it for you.February 19, 2010 at 9:08 am #89583happymumblemumParticipant
My parents told me nothing …absolutely nothing 😥 😥
I too got all the info from school..had this little book they gave to us about periods I kept it in my bedside drawer and used to read it at night absolutely terrified…
Later on in school we were doing a bit of sex ed in Biology and someone asked the teacher about blo* job* and if a man could accidententally wee in your mouth 😆 😆 have to say at 14 and very naive I was horrified..obviously my school friends were more advanced..
Later again a group of us used to dodge school and go round to this lads house when his folks were at work and watch his dads porn films….
Oh lord…yes please talk to your kids about sex :and girls especially periods… I used to be so worried I would "start " at school and was too embarassed to talk to my mum about buying something to keep in my bag.
I will never leave dd so in the dark like I wasFebruary 19, 2010 at 11:30 am #89598munchinParticipant

Amazing you – getting smart about your private parts and her 8yr old has read it
Then she has – What’s the big secret? Talking about sex with boys & girls which she’s going to give her in the next year -she just had a talk with her after she read the first bookFebruary 19, 2010 at 11:41 am #89602Taylor5Member
my parents got me a book from the library… myself and my freind were looking at it and reading it in fits laughing 😆 😆 😆 We had never seen a penis and we were yuck 😳 it wasnt a photo but black and white drawings 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆
We were walking to school the next day and we were "well how is your vagina today?" We cried laughing at this as we never called it a "Vagina" 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆
She only emailed me on facebook reminding me about the day i was given that book to read 😆 😆 😆 I think i was about 12 or 13 and far too immature to read stuff like that….. all a huge joke to us!!!!
I had to go into the livingroom and hand the book back to my parents and tell them i read it (all while holding a straight face) Do you have any questions? Eh….. hell NO!!!!!
Sorry it still cracks me up at how silly we thought the whole thing was 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 My kids will NOT BE GETTING A BOOK TO READ 😳
