“The talk” was nonexistent in my house as was most conversation about emotions or relationships in general. Wifey had a bombardment of negative comments about body image and sexuality from the women in her family. We’re trying to avoid both of those, but without good examples set by our upbringing we’re in search of guides.
Wifey got a book from American Girl focused on puberty; I can’t remember the name off-hand. It does a good job helping explain the mechanics, but each section ends with a Q&A that we’re not super thrilled with. The Qs have lots of negative body messages and negative self talk that we are actively trying to avoid. As an example, one of them is a girl complaining that her freckles are “ugly”. The A tries to address it, but falls short and we’d rather not have the idea planted in the first place.
