Homeschool Sex Education

As a homeschool mom, I deal daily with fear--fear that I'm not doing enough, or doing things right, or doing too much, or doing the wrong things....when a child goes to public school, it's the school district's fault if the child gets messed up.  As a homeschooling mom, I can ruin his life all by myself!

One topic that has been tricky in our home has been sex education.  I feel very comfortable talking about sex, but my 14-yr old son DOESN'T.  I will occasionally try to take advantage of "teaching moments" (usually during a Family Guy episode) but my son does not want to hear any of my wisdom.  So  I've resorted to less traditional ways of getting the message out there.  Thus, the following post--sex ed curriculum for today.

Sex explained through BIC pens

So what do you think?  I think I'm the coolest mom in the world.....or the most disturbed.  Should I start a PayPal account for people to chip in $$$ for my son's future therapy needs? 


  1. LOL! Peggy, I thought that was hilarious - but we have the same sense of humor and our sons will probably be seeing the same therapist when they get older. :-)

  2. I just have to say I laughed until I cried. My 19 year old daughter thought I was insane, rolling on the couch and snorting. Perhaps we should pay for her therapy bills as well.

  3. That was funny Peggy ha ha. You all can pay me to be the therapist :o)

  4. oh THATS awesome!!!
    Maybe we can all go in on a group therapy discount!
