  • Don`t worry too much about it! As Cara says, you`ll get more than one chance to broach the subject with your kids. Just start bringing it up little by little, and you`ll do fine. Best of luck!

  • Some parents just take the whole nonsense out of it and say this goes in there and this is released and then things start multiplying and a baby grows and it comes out of the same place. I guess it`s intense if you haven`t heard it ever, so as a child, hearing it is even more brow raising.

  • They`re her classmates so age 8 to 9 .Don`t know if they were saying they had sex or it was them talking about how girls have sex with boys. She know about puberty ,what sex is ,that there is diseases called STD, that there is birth control,Baby start to end,what does it mean to be gay. Doesn`t know about foreplay or other sexual acts. She is now reading the care and keeping of you.I`m lucky that there is a lot of good authors out there that write these books to help our conversations.

    // 2013-03-01 03:03:29 // //
  • My daughter said that one of her friends came over and told her that she doesn`t want to be over with the other two girls because they are talking about having sex with boys. So my daughter didn`t know any more details more than just that two classmates were talking about this topic and her friend was uncomfortable with the conversation

  • My daughter is 8 (grade 3) but shares the bus with all ages. Her school goes up to grade 8.But she is the highest grade during recess. They will be offering sex Ed class next year. I know that when I was 8 it was my best friend that told me about sex.I was horrified, so when my daughter asked me I thought it was better for her to hear it from me than a friend that had mixed up info.

  • What in the world is wrong with you?? I`m Bengali and why would you talk to a 9 year old about that stuff.

  • The book is:It`s so amazing! a book about eggs sperm, birth babies and families by Harris,Robbie H. It includes two cartoon characters to make it enjoyable for the kids. Shows how one character wants to know and the other doesn`t. The information is well written for a child to understand.

  • Wow!! I think I need to ask my 5 year old what she thinks and knows because she is curious as hell as walked in on me and her Dad a time or two and I already feel she`s a huggy kissy type of kind in expressing her love for her friends. I will ask what she thinks in the morning.

  • As a father, I am extremely mortified of having this conversation with my daughters. My biggest concerns are in having the same candor as my wife, and the second is the topic that was touched upon, `the emotional side` of sex and relationships.

  • Exactly! Thank you for sharing - that`s a great example of how parents can approach this subject.

  • It`s actually very easy, you tell them people want to screw and they like too, boys will chase girls to get a taste of her, then she`ll learn to like it and eventually get pregnant when she cheats on him cuz she got mad and didn`t have the life skills to deal with it so instead sought attention elsewhere. Oh well

    // 2013-02-14 19:53:52 // //
  • My boys brought it up. I gave them the justs the facts, and I have to say that many of these conversations happen in the car. I am a guyanese indian. My parents never discussed sex with us.

  • My daughter came to me asking questions about sex.Gave her enough and than she ask more ,bit by bit it and when she was 8 she asked me what is sex.I got a wonderful book out of the library and we read it a bit every night together.Until she had a clear picture.It work out perfect.Now she comes home and tell me that others are talking about it on the bus and during recess.I feel so good that she heard it from me and not from a child that might give her the wrong info.

    // 2013-02-14 17:11:47 // //
  • Don`t forget that masturbation makes you blind, riding dildos longer than6" causes brain damage and sex is bad, dirty and nasty and you should save it for the one you love.

    // 2013-02-14 16:58:36 // //
  • Thanks! I'm going to need this info soon enough. :)

  • I love the intro to this show so much, its adorable.

    // 2013-02-14 16:26:45 // //
  • It was easy for me. I answered all the questions truthfully, using the names 'things' and bodyparts have - and told them that most other children were not as informed and that it was important to only talk to us at home about it, if they must. And.... I would never tell them anything in secret again, if I found out they didn't. (And I would not have done it either...) Never had a problem

  • My boys and I used to watch Beverly Hills 90210 together and that always brought up questions and conversations in an easy and relaxed way. It was a process - not one "talk" but a series of open talks, which was nice. Not always perfect, though... When we were in the movie theater watching Clueless, one of the characters said something, and my son piped up, rather loudly, "What`s a virgin?" rather loudly - got more laughs from the audience than the movie! lol!

  • Good one. :)

  • Brave discussion, wonderful tips. I think it is much easier when the families are close to nature, there are plenty of opportunities to ask questions and also to see the natural circle of life- hedgehogs mate in the garden, then there are small babies, and they also die sometimes when cars hit them or they grow old. Nature easily explains all there is to know. Here in Sweden the school does the rest so thoroughly that my kids knew it all before I had a chance to even stress myself up :)
