Do you remember when your parents had “The Talk” with you about sex, about your changing body? Did you have “The Talk” with your friends? Times have changed. As the mother of a 9-year-old girl and 11 year old boy, they had “The Talk” with me. I was surprised at how much they know, that I did not know at their ages. I now know it is never too early to have “The Talk ” with your children about puberty and sex.
I was very happy to meet, a young author who has made it easy for moms and daughters to have “The Talk”. 9 year old, Jordan C. Reed and her mother Shermane have written the book “The Talk I Never Had For Girls.” This easy to read book is now available. It can be used to start a conversation with young girls about what can be a confusing and overwhelming time in their lives. It is important for girls and boys to know what their bodies are going through is normal and a part of growing up.
