When did your daughter learn about sex? My 9yo doesn't ever say anything about it, and I have never said anything to her..But she is starting to drop hints..like she went into our bedroom (after we had had sex) and asked what had happened to the sheets and what had we been doing? I feel dumb always saying "Nothing" or lieing to her..Any suggestions?

I think nine or ten is an ok age, depending upon maturity level and their inquisitiveness.

If she is asking you then she already knows something about sex. She is asking you, as a way to verify what she knows. At this age she has probably already seen or heard things around her friends at school. You know how kids talk. Anyways, you need to tell her in age appropriate ways about sex. Tell her Why people have sex, tell her a little bit about how (but not too graphic) and let her know it's OK to talk to you is she has any questions. It's better she gets the correct things from you then the wrong stuff from friends or TV. A good way to start is to ask HER what she knows about sex. See how much she knows, before you start, that way you can correct anything if she has the wrong idea. Here's an article if you need anymore help! http://www.talkingwithkids.org/sex.html
