My daughter came one one day in first grade and asked me about "sex". It's amazing how much kids know nowadays. All we can do is teach them how to respect their body as treasure and allow no one to defile it. Sooner or later, they will find out the truth about it from their friends or tv1 So it's best to be honest about it and let them know the consequences of it.
