I posted this in a different forum but now I want Christian opinions. My daughter is 10 and is starting to bud (boobs) well anyway I am breaking her in slow but sure about her the development of her repoductive system eventually tellling her completely about sex and why she should wait. One day my daughter came home and told me information I was not ready for her to know yet, which as now put me in the position to give her more information than I think she needs right now. Needless to say I confronted the school and they said sorry for the confusion they did not know that the lesson gave such graphic info.
As a Christian mom how would you handle the"talk" with your daughter so early? I am the kind of parent that believes a child her age should be more focused on self-image and confidence not sex. What do you think?

I'm not sure why the school wouldn't know that the lesson was too graphic. Lessons are gone through before they are taught.
In our school district there is a parents sex ed night, so the parents will know what the school is teaching This is done for several reasons. One parents have different ideas of what should be taught and the school doesn't want anyone surprised. Also the kids might come home asking questions so it's good to know how the school approached the topics.
I don't think 10 is too young for sex ed, but I don't think that's what the poster is saying, just that the material was too graphic.

Hey I hit puberty at 6 and my mother told me nothing but it was normal. I had to learn to deal with it all by myself, until about the 4th grade when a teacher stepped in and got me into a class.
