Prepping for "the talk"

 
During my health class last year, my teacher covered pretty much every awkward thing I need to know about puberty. But my parents haven’t talked to me about it yet. What should I say to them?

 

Sitting through “the talk” with your parents is pretty much a right of passage. However, since you’ve got the basics down, you really don’t need to initiate a discussion unless you have questions. If you do, that’s OK! You should feel comfortable enough to ask, even if it’s totally awkward.

 

What to do when…you’ve got a Q

Grab Mom (or Dad, or a trusted adult, or a sibling) and quickly say, “So, my health teacher told us all about periods last year, but I was wondering…” There, done!

 

What to do when…you just wanna let them know

If the chat was a happened-last-week deal, leave ‘em a sticky note on the fridge (or mention it when they ask how school’s going): “FYI, Ms. Ross talked to us about puberty and periods and things last week.”

 

What to do when…they wanna talk

Offer up the requisite eye-roll, then let ‘em dish to their heart’s content. You may have heard it all before, but this is something your parents feel they need to talk to you about, so let ‘em unload. If you want, head them off at the beginning with a quick, “You know, my health teacher told me about this last year, but I have a question. Do you mind?”
