We had a sermon today at church that reminded me that I need to discuss "the facts of life" more formally with my DD (soon to be 10). Has anyone used Dr. Dobson's "Preparing for Adolescence"? I heard a program once where he suggested the mother take the daughter out for a weekend someplace, and go through the tapes, and have fun in between them. Dads do the same with the sons. I noticed the library has the book AND his tapes. Has anyone tried this? Our pastor recited some rather disturbing statistics. He was talking about how kids' emotional involvement often exceeds their maturity level. He said that 91% of kids that date at age 12 have *** before graduation . Dating at 13 drops it to 56%, 53% for age 14, 40% for age 15, and 20% for age 16.
