My God is it that time already????
My daughter will not be 8 until March but has lately been making comments about boyfriends and about some of the boys at school chasing girls to kiss them. I have always tried to be honest with her about where babies come from without giving details but lately she has been asking exactly what sex is and why people do it and HOW people do it and I feel like a deer in the headlights. I know everyone has a different belief here but would be really really appreciative to hear how others have handled this conversation. Ny daughter is still only 7 physically and emotionally but has a very sharp inquisitive mind and is slightly ahead of her age intellectually. After a month in kindergarten they bumped her right up to first grade. I thought that was a good thing back then but it just occurred to me that she will be a 16 year old girl when she is a senior and will be attending classes and graduation parties with 17 to 19 year old boys. (Can you tell I'm in a panic here? Any advice?
