When parents started asking us to offer a program on sex as a follow up to our puberty program, we hesitated. It’s one thing to talk with our own kids or write blogs about “talking with your kids about sex,” but it’s a whole new ball game when we actually talk to your kid for you!

But if you know us, you know we didn’t hesitate very long. Not only were we up for it, we’re loving it!

One of our most frequently asked questions is, “When do we have the talk… You know, the sex talk.” The Girlology mantra, as well as my own, has always been eight is great. Great, that is, until this year when my youngest daughter’s eighth birthday was fast approaching.

She’s less mature than her sister was at that age, a circumstance that seems to be a common concern in many families.

Before either girl had turned eight, a friend shared a touching story about how she and her husband explained the secrets of life to their daughter on this birthday. It sounded magical and informative, such a well-rounded success, her father and I thought we’d do the same. We began with the facts, since that is where most magic is rooted,...
