- jewel akens – the birds and the bees
Raising a child is one of the most gratifying jobs and if Bo has anything to add to this, he would take most of the credit, but I would say it is a 50/50 percent share. I grew up with 7 sisters, and our parents never had the talk with us. I think it’s even a taboo to talk about it in the Asian culture. I know time is not on my side, my little girl is growing up and I’m not even sure how to approach the topic. This part of parenting is no longer a 50/50, the weight is on my shoulders, and perhaps the school will get to it before I do.
When I was growing up, I was a tomboy and my parents never had to worry about me, I had my face buried in a book most of the time. Lee is very much like me, she is an avid reader and has her nose in a book lately, perhaps she won’t even notice the birds and the bees. I know wishful thinking.
