"That's why", is the comment my 9 year old said while viewing this video.
It is a basic introduction to sex education for those children who are
asking where babies come from. In the more delecate parts the video is
annimated. Very age appropriate for young children. I recommend this video
for ages 8 and up.

So I purchased both dvds based on ratings and the fact that this could be a great visual supplement to my impending conversations with my 8 year old boy and my 10 year old girls. I believe the dvds are done really well with appropriate levels of language and visuals. With that said, I was dissappointed because I was looking for something more geared towards puberty with a little of the sex talk mixed in. This was, I would guess, about 80% sex and 20% puberty and, to be honest, it was a pretty short video.

For the girls I would have liked to see more about their period, what happens when they have it, the fact that it comes each month, how to take care of themselves around it, etc. It touches very briefly that a girl will get breasts and she will have a period but I think there is so much more to talk about explaining how their body works.

For boys, I would have liked to see more about their maturing body as well. What can they expect and what happens "in the night" and other things.

I think if you want your child to understand intercourse and how babies are made, this is great but unfortunately I mostly would like a focus on puberty and a maturing body and maybe even sprinkle in some things that may change with peer relationships.

Again, the visuals and verbiage are great. It's a very short video (I do feel like I overpaid) and the most of it is about sex (I guess, hence the name but again, I was expecting a lot more about puberty). As my title says ... just know what you want to talk about before purchasing.

The video has everything you need to make "the talk" thorough and comfortable. It talks in a no-nonsense manner about sex but also mentions love in the right context. I thought it was an outstanding way to show the basic concepts in an upbeat way without obscuring it too much. It's perfect for pre-teen girls who need to know the basics- it even delves into periods a little. I used this as the bulk of my "talk" with two of my kids, and it explained things better than I probably could have. It does it in a simple way without talking down to the kids. The girl who narrates is perfect- older than the young girls who will watch this but young enough so that they can relate to her and see her as almost a peer. I can't say enough good things about this video. I wish it had been around when I was little!

I teach Sex Education to 5th graders, and I purchased this video to see if I could substitute it for the very well done but now out-of-production "What Kids Want to Know About Sex and Growing Up." I was extremely disappointed. "The Birds, the Bees, and Me for Girls" mostly consisted of a teenager explaining puberty and sex, with only a few (not very helpful) cartoon illustrations. My students would easily tune out the narrator since the topic isn't a comfortable one to begin with and the camera focuses on her face and nothing else for long periods of time.

If you can't find anything else, this does touch on many important topics (intro to puberty, sex, and responsibility) and is better than nothing. However, it fails to get into the details of menstruation, which is an extremely important topic for girls. If you can get your hands on "What Kids Want to Know About Sex and Growing Up," you'll be much happier despite the out-of-date hair styles!

I believe this was a good introduction to sex for my 8 year old daughter. I purchased the boy version for my 10 year old son only to learn that they had covered most everything in school. Wanting to get ahead of the public schools, I immediately bought the girl version. My daughter and I watched together and she was very interested in the content. The animated illustration of intercourse is tastefully done and the narrative is broad enough to allow parents to discuss their views on the appropriate age for sex. Menstruation is not covered in detail as that is not the topic of the video. It is more of a general overview of the physical and emotional components of sex to illicit further discussion.

As a dad, this is awesome. My wife wasn't sure how to deal with it either, but it must be done before they misinformation for other kids in school. Nice, short and to the point with a message of 'it is OK to wait till you are married.' Not good for just let the kids watch and be done, but nice for a basis of discussion and continued learning.

If you are not a very easy talking person, a dad or mom strugling to talk about sex with your child, this video would help you out. Presented to my 11yo daughter, it just delivered the message and it is what I was looking for.
We watched it as a family, you could hear a fly's heart beat 100ft away, then left for her to review it as she preased and to ask questions if she had any. It is a good start to break the ice.
