OK, so I told a fellow-Mom about wishing I could afford to put my child in private school b/c based on my own experiences, I have found that public school kids are exposed to things like sex, drugs, and alcohol @ a way younger age than private school kids.
Her debate was that I should not shelter my kids &they should be exposed to things like this to learn how do deal w/them.
I agree they should not be sheltered, but, at the age of 7yrs, I think it's way too young to introduce my son IN DETAIL to the idea of sex/drugs/alcohol. When he gets a bit older, but, not too old, I will sit him down &discuss it all w/him.
I went to a public school @the age of 11 &they were already talking about explicit sexual things using words like wet pussies, hard dicks, and fucking.
So my ? is how young is too young to talk about things like this? I don't wanna shelter him too much but, I don't wanna expose him too early.
