    I have kids that totally wish to switch places in the puberty game. My oldest started getting boobs in the 5th grade and started all the other stuff this year, she thinks we should not get boobs until we are pregnant and we need them My 5th grader still needs to sit in a booster seat, she has NOTHING started at all and she would love to have some boobs like her friends.

    This made me laugh.

    So, T was asking about how babies get in their mommies tummies, and I started out general like "Daddies put them there."
    T: "How?"
    Me: "The daddy plants a seed in the mommy's belly, and that seed grows into a baby."
    T: HOW? How does he get the seed in there?
    Me: "Uh. With his penis. He puts his penis in the mommy's vagina and leaves the seed there."
    T: "WHAT!?!? NO!!!!"

    The way he said no was HILARIOUS. Like he had never heard anything more preposterous in his entire life. I died.

    Thats so funny Alissa! My kids have never asked how the baby gets there, in fact DD tells me stories about how she played with her brothers in there, and there was one more baby too

    I did make the mistake of telling DD when she asked how the baby could come out my Vagina, since it is so small (good question by the way), that my vagina changes 'like magic' so the baby can get out, and then changes back again. She went away for a day or so to mull that over, and then came back and asked if she could watch the 'magic' when the baby was born. I had to do some fancy back peddling on that one.

    It isn't an issue of "sheltering" it is the issue of correct and appropriate information for each individual child when and how they need it. I feel as a parent I do that better than the school. My boys both know the whole deal. Even at 3 they knew about periods and pain.. lol there is really know hiding it when they see a tampon and you tell them not to play with it, and they wonder why.. or why they can't sit on your lap once a month.

    Well the school seems to allow for that as parents can opt out. Oh lord my children would be terrified by periods.

    I know it's none of my business, but why can't they sit on your lap when you have your period? No need to answer if it's private.

    It was the cramping was horrid Opting out of everything is very hard, and you don't know exactly what is being taught, even if handed the exact curriculum.. good thing I homeschool I guess.. maybe I am just too picky.

    This is a problem we have run into, even with really awesome curriculum teachers cannot control what kids ask. Last year DD went to a class at school that was just supposed to be about the changes of puberty, but one of the kids asked about what age the teacher thought girls were ready for sex, the conversation spiraled out of control from there. Molly was fine, we have always been very open, but she felt really bad for a few girls that she was sure had not heard about sex yet. This all took place in 6th grade at a private christian school.

    I think that its wild to think about a 6th grader not knowing about sex. Like, criminal wild.

    The thought of keeping my children out of school because I am worried about them hearing about sex is just cray cray.
