      Hi doggirl

      Year 6 is about age 10-11 isn’t it – final year of primary school? That seems a good time to me – at around that age lots of kids will be starting puberty and I think it’s a good idea that they know what’s happening to their bodies and why, and to start understanding a bit about adult relationships.

      Do you think that’s too early or too late?
