When helping your daughter understand how puberty is different for a boy, it is helpful to show common pathways. For example, eggs are produced in the ovaries and sperm are produced in the testicles. They both leave and follow along inside a tube to get to their destination.
Illustrations from I’m a Girl, How Are Boys Different?
In the illustration on the left, usually only one egg leaves one ovary midway through a menstrual cycle and travels inside a fallopian tube to arrive in the uterus. In the illustration on the right, millions of sperm are released from the testicles and travel inside the vas deferens to arrive at the beginning of the penis. This happens during an ejaculation.
The sperm and the eggs contain the genetic blueprint for the boy or girl. Certainly, important information.
If you use these illustrations, this is a simple topic that should not take longer than seven minutes. Make it fun and interesting and they will want to hear your next brief topic.
