I feel like I am going to be sick

So I am sitting here watching the Katie Couric special on NBC about teens and sex. All I can say is OMFG! This is scary. I can see that I am going to have to have to get a lot more comfortable with the idea of talking to my now 7 year old about sex. I think he isn’t ready yet, but with 14% of 12-14 year olds saying they are sexually active, I am going to have to broach the subject a lot earlier than I had originally thought. I guess the main thing is that I want to make sure he is comfortable enough to talk to me about whatever he is thinking or feeling or has a question.

    No connection, really, but rather than be scared into submission by news anchors, have you checked out http://www.gizmodo.com? It’s a fun tech blog on the Gawker network.
    Also, Philly-based E-Gear magazine just introduced a new way to comment on product reviews. Check it out here: http://www.e-gear.com.
