Re: 'The talk' for uninterested older kids?
I would have Dad have a little chat w/ him, too, before the class. My oldest is a girl, and we did the 'body talk' before going into 4th grade, but that was b/c I knew there were some girls (not my DD) that would probably start their periods in 4th grade, and I wanted my DD to hear about it from me and not in the school bathroom. We used the American Girl Care and Keeping of You. Not sure of a boys' equivilant? I would not have him skip the class, I think it sends the wrong message and he'll just hear about it at school anyway.
