    Ah now I've just ordered a couple of sex ed type books for my little un's from Amazon.

    Dunno what they're like yet but here's the link....

    Amazon.co.uk: sex education: Books

    I bought - 'Let's talk about where babies come from' and 'Asking about Sex and Growing Up: A Question-And-Answer Book for Boys and Girls' both of which cover puberty, so I believe....

    the problem is ,i live in catholic ireland and no sex ed until 13. i think alot of these country folk think babies are still found behind bushes . no body talks about sex or periods . the parents are so stiff . i want my children to start with the truth and build on it

    I used the ones by Babette Cole

    Amazon.co.uk: babette cole

    we got the Mummy Laid an egg one and Hair in funny places - they pitched it just right and are good fun too. Highly recommended.

    This book arrived this afternoon ('Let's talk about where babies come from' ) - I gave it to my 8 year old and she hasn't put it down since!!! LMTO!!

    Last I saw, she was reading it to her 5 year old sister in bed.

    Classic!

    do it yourself sex education. it good that they are open to it. me son is quite shy and came home one day and said the boys in class were laughing because he didnt know what a vaginica seaman was ( im a celebrity ) . i gently explained it was somebodies name but why it was funny . the teasing carried on until my son punched one of them . cut to me in the headmasters office explaining about vaginica and the teasing . not an experience i want to repeat . the master never cracked a smile once and i mortified
