This week's Fun Friday post explores the birds and the bees. This may be a touchy topic and we understand that each family has their own ideas about how and when to teach your own children. However, we have received a few appropriate submissions that we wanted to share with you.

There's No Place Like Home provides age appropriate information for parents on what to discuss and how to include your personal beliefs and values in the conversation. There are links for children ages 3 through 12th grade.

Great Schools has an article on teaching the facts of life to students who struggle with learning and behavioral disorders, The Birds and the Bees and Kids with LD.

Family Education has a lesson on Talking About the Birds and the Bees for children ages 4-7.

Parenting has an article called The Birds and the Bees and Curious Kids aimed at helping parents of young children.

Birds +Bees + Kids ask and answers many common questions parents might have.

Sprittibee has an extensive post, on her homeschool photography blog, full of resources for teaching children about the birds and the bees.

Mariel sent us the link to a helpful post on teaching your children all about "The Birds & the Bees." She suggests many appopriate books for broaching this topic with your children.

  1. It is not a topic anyone usually wants to go to with their kids, but these days it is so important to be ready and keep the discussion open. Thanks for the ideas, we aren't there yet, but at least I will be ready when we do!
