Amazing what a few months will do in the life of a tween. When he’s uncomfortable discussing things with me he says so, and I have to respect that. I’d have died of embarrassment if my father had ever brought up sex, and my tween son feels the same.But even if he gives the initial overview, you’ll also need to share the mom/woman version of the birds and the bees talk with your son. And believe me, even if you feel totally comfortable talking about sex with your son, be prepared for him to give you a look of extreme mortification, followed by pronouncements that “you’re weird” and “why do we have to talk about this stuff? First, if you’d rather not cover all of these points in one conversation, that’s okay.
Most adolescents feel awkward talking about sex with anyone, but especially with a parent. And although I have the information he needs, it sometimes feels off for me, too.

I thought about how I felt when I was a young guy just learning about my body.
And as such I think I may be of service to the moms and sons out there on this subject that can get quite touchy (yes that pun was totally intended).
