But occasionally it can be a pleasant surprise! Like when I accidentally discovered these videos from the Spring Fever Sex Education teaching program. Children from the ages of 8 or 9 will be totally okay with the content in these videos. These videos are ideal for children from between the ages of 8 or 9 and older. As well as having a teaching curriculum for children, Rutgers who created Spring fever have also created some short videos that can be used to talk to kids about sexual intercourse, their private parts or genitals and masturbation.
It is a one minute video that talks about sexual intercourse or making love. When they are in the mood; they will cuddle, kiss and lie naked next to each other. It finishes with an explanation that as strange as this all sounds, that this is something that your child may want to do when they are older. This video is about how babies are made. The first minute is the video from above, What is Sex? It then continues on with the sperm moving up through the vagina, into the womb on the search for an egg.
If an egg has been released, it may be fertilised. The egg cell and the sperm cell mergeand becomee one, forming a baby. The baby then develops until it is ready to be born through the vagina. This 30 second video provides a brief overview of what happens during girl puberty.
Just keep in mind that the word vulva is not used. The vagina is the inside part, and the vulva is the outside part the part that grows hair.
So you may not like this video but it is a great opportunity to talk with your child about how words can sometimes be used n the wrong context.
You can learn more about naming the genitals here. This one minute video talks about menstruation. The fallopian tubes sit on top of her womb, and the ovaries 9with the egg cells are attached to these. When she is around 12, the egg cell will ripen ovulation , and will travel through the fallopian tube to the womb.
If the egg cell meets a sperm cell, it may become fertilised. The womb creates a special place for the fertilised egg cell, so that it can grow into a baby. This special place then leaves the vagina as a period.
A peer of mine, Jane Bennet from Celebration Day for Girls , is a guru on this topic and is the person I go to if I have a question myself. General agreement is that the egg lasts only hours after ovulation, and even if fertilised takes about 5 days to travel the fallopian tube to the uterus.
The description is very simplistic but thorough. It tells a girl that if she looks at her genitals with a mirror, that she will only see a small slit. This 50 second video provides a brief overview of what happens during boy puberty. It does not talk about the fact that puberty means he is fertile.
During puberty, millions of sperm cells are made each day and are stored in the testicles or balls. If you look at a boys penis, you can see the glans at the top of his penis.
The boy may then get a stiff penis erection. It is much safer to watch these videos on this page! Watch the videos by yourself first. This way there will be no unexpected surprises. Plus you can get used to the language and information that is discussed first. Try telling your child that you found a video that you would like to show them. You could ask them first if they know anything about puberty or sex. Watch the video with your child. You can find some good books on puberty and sex here.
