Sheila Actually, this is a children's book from Germany. My German is really weak (read non-existent) but I assume it teaches sex ed.

Umm, that's kind of like those books (on menstruation) that moms of the seventies used to throw their daughters and tell them to read it.

LOL, one woman I worked with said her mom tossed a book and a box of pads on her bed and then said, "See that you need to use them."

Oh sheesh. I'd forgotten about that. Thanks for the memories.

But btw... do ya think there's a reason they had to make the pictures so dang ugly?

Wonder what the copyright date is? The outfits they are wearing look like they could be from the 70's.

Golly, looks like things are a little scary for chillins over in Germany.

Mr. Fabulous and Y Not cracked me up right out of my chair.

Personally...I'd wait at least a few years to discuss this with the boy. Let him be a kid for a while. 'Cos any information he receives probably won't stay solely with him.

Did anybody else notice that like the world over..the men are standing around while the woman does all the work?

That book maybe a bit to graphic for him, it sure scared the crap out of me to see the baby with it's arms reaching out.

He'll let you know when he is ready to be taught those things. I've told SBW a few things but not complete detail.

I love the kid with his arms out popping out of mom's coochie! *snorts*

If you're serious, try "Where Did I Come From." Not quite as graphic, but to the point.

I guess it would answer any questions. I do remember that sex ed in school answered NONE of my questions and I'm trying very hard to make sure Daughter knows the basics.

That is too funny. I am answering questions as Princess (5 years) asks them in as simple a way but truthful way as much as I can. So far that is working for us. We will see how that goes.

My next questions are:

1 - Do you own this book, or were you considering purchasing it?


2 - Did you stumble across this book while looking for kama sutra for you and JJ?

You know what, nevermind. I don't want to know at all!

My daughter is eight and starting to ask questions but I don't think I need a book when we have "the talk" I think my words will be just fine. I am so freaked out.

That is sooo freaking weird.... I'd skip the book, I'm scared it would give him nightmares.
