hmmmmm.....

Sex Ed in Amy's class:


It's hard to read but they decided the way you tell the difference between a boy and a girl is not via clothing, hair, muscles or hat. I thought this was a great start- pointing out the similarities before we got to the differences.

Meg's class started off with the same idea and the kids had to guess which was the boy and which was the girl.  Cue mass hysteria when all was revealed.

It was great that the teacher reassured them that this was a subject that made people giggly and it was alright to laugh or giggle but not to say ewwwww! or grossss! as it's all natural and we've all got sexual organs.

Teacher fuzzed out as I'm about to be a bit rude and don't want to embarrass her tooooo much .....

Really hard to see but is it just me or does that boy have rather serious anatomical problems.... He seems to be growing sexual organs on his abdomen, right?

Oh and what she's holding?  A storyboard story about testicles and their uses and origin (up where women's ovaries are- I had no idea!)  And the reason they are called kintama in Japanese is not for golden balls but as a contraction of iki-no-tama where iki is the character for life.  I can stop wondering why balls are considered golden here, then!  

Not sure what it says about me that I was learning stuff in Grade three Sex Ed....

But I think I could teach something about male anatomy here....

She's a great teacher, very young and working doubly hard as she's still studying, so maybe she doesn't have time to get out much....

But really.....

Hmmmmmm.....

Wait til 4th grade, or was it 5th, when they teach that wet dreams are kind of like the equivalent to periods.

Noah hasn't had Sex Ed yet.

But Branden has. Last year Branden's class had a very thorough semester on it. Each child even got a tube of Biore face wash because they were told their skin should start getting greasy around puberty. I've spoke to Branden about all of this though for years whenever he had a question, I'd answer it. And I also brought up a few subjects I felt important too. I just want my boys to know they can talk to me about anything. : )
