I don't know if this is the right place for my issue, but my dilemma fall under educating girls so here it goes.

I have a 16 year old stepson and a 13 year old stepdaughter as well as my 16 year old daughter. My sister feels that my stepson should be taken to a pediatrician as he has not been to the doctor for a long time. My sister suggested I take the boy to the pediatrician she uses for her girls, who is also her close girl friend.

My stepson does not want to go to a pediatrician, especially a female doctor. I am considering taking my daughter and stepdaughter for exams as well as taking him.

I think he is embarrassed to go to a female pediatrician and is scared he will be examined with the girls present. I brought this up with my sister, she said it is normal to bring all children into the exam room at the same time. Obviously the girls would not be examined with my stepson present but she feel it is appropriate for my stepson to be examined with the girls present as it will only add to their education.

I need your advice on how to handle this situation as my sister is setting up an examination appointment for the boy, with her girlfriend the pediatrician. My sister feels this is an excellent opportunity to begin the girls education about boys. Should the girls be included at his examination or would that be too embarrassing for him?

Thank you for your help,
Tara
