  • No i dont think its too early. School children are bound to pick things up from tv, classmates and adults conversations etc... Just try to have an age appropriate convo with her.

  • She probally heard it from other kids she plays with. My 8 dd asked me what sex is and I asked her where did she her about that. come to find out she learned it from her friends in the neigborhood. The girls are 5 and 7 and they mother was letting hang out with teens.

  • I wouldn't think she would know what that is at that age....although kids learn pretty young now adays. But I hope not my dd will be 7 next year and she is already asking how this baby got in my tummy I am not ready to answer sex questions too lol

  • my kids came home with sex references that they learned on the bus! i feel they are too small for the talk so i told them we would talk about it when they were a little older and that what they hear (slang words) were inappropriate. ive been driving them to school since!

  • I agree that it is something she must have learned at school from someone who knows way too much

  • My 8 year old niece comes over with questions all the time, for a while there they were all about sex. She'd ask a question and I'd explain it all out, trying to inform her and get her to understand rather than having her go on schoolyard gossip. She'd usually get grossed out , go ew! and leave ... only to return five minutes later with another. Go ask your mom doesn't work on her, apparently auntie Pat is way cooler
