At what age should you have the birds and bees talk with your child?
My mother shared the intimate details of a sexual relationship very early on in my life. Her mother never filled her in until the eve of her wedding. When is the best time to let your child know about the birds and the bees.
I think they should have a basic idea before going to school around other children because they will learn it their way there. It is really a shame I think but with the world so wicked we don't have much choice if we want our children safe. They should be warned so tiny children know to go to an adult immediately if anyone invades any of their private space, even dads and step dads or whoever. How many might have been saved if Mom had had that talk with her little ones. Now we have a school full of people and no doubt others they shared the secret with that let abuse of little boys go on for years and I hope they will pay the price for that...as if they really ever could.
Your child should be informed as soon as they can understand words. You don't have to go into to detail, but it is better for you to teach your child about it than to have someone else teach them.
My daughters school did a sex education talk with them last year when she was 9 years old. She had lots of questions which I explained to her when she got home.
It seems like earlier and earlier these days. I feel it's important to answer any questions they may have truthfully but to keep the answers to just the amount of information they need at each age. I'd say probably by 9 or a little younger, they should have a basic understanding of how it all works, and that understanding should come from the parents, not from friends/classmates.

Why is something so natural as sex so hard to discuss with your child/children? As a parent would you describe their body parts with silly names like dolphin, rabbit, jewels,and ect.? Then, these names would be appropriate for ages 5-9 Va-G for girls, and Pen for boys.
