Well I did it! I had THE talk. You know the birds and the bees??? Ya well…I’ve been putting it off for quite sometime. I didn’t know if my son was ready…or shall I say if I was ready.
The night just offered up a time when he and I were alone. Everyone else in bed.
The actual talk was full of giggles and coy eyes. He was flabbergasted by what I had to say. He absolutely had no clue how babies were made. I love his innocence.
Some may think that I waited too long…for me, it was just the right time. He’s 11 yrs old and full of wonder. He deserved the truth about God’s perfectly designed plan for us to procreate. How we fit together so miraculously…a man and a woman. It truly is a beautiful thing. I sometimes think we tend to forget this. Society and media paints such an ugly and vulgar picture about sex.
It wasn’t designed for that purpose. It was made for us to enjoy and create within a loving relationship between a man and a women. I think we need to stress that to our children.
I assured my sweet boy that his daddy and I are always here to discuss anything he has questions about. There’s nothing he has to be embarrassed or ashamed to talk to us about.
For now, I think he’s still digesting this new discovery. In due time, there will be more questions I’m sure.
This is the book I read to him regarding this subject:
I’d love to hear all of your experiences with THE TALK!
