Well, my wife found one way to make talking about the birds and the bees with our kids. Tonight, I'm taking my boys (ages 10 and 13) to a class "For Boys Only." I'll let you know how it goes.
Great Conversations is a program sponsored by Parent Trust for Washington Children. Their classes cover the basics, using interactivity and lots of humor to talk about puberty, sexuality, parenting and other topics surrounding adolescence to families, teens and professionals. They hold classes in Seattle and Palo Alto. The two-night class costs $50
From their website:
"Our primary goal is to provide important information helpful to understanding the experience of adolescence in a fun and engaging format with parents and youth. We believe that equipping families with the resources and tools they need to engage in conversations together will strengthen communication, provide a base of important health information for decision making, and encourage healthy relationships."
