 Um.... tell them openly and honestly about their bodies. Have you not talked to them about menses and what their vaginas look like etc? That's a healthy conversation to have, it doesn't have to be weird.

Are you uncomfortable discussing this?? Theres a book, "the care and keeping of you" that covers EVERYTHING and is great for that age range. Though you need to be there if they have questions. DO NOT wait until they start their periods! Theyll freak if you havent told them what to expect. 


As for sexuality, I'm pretty sure the book covers masturbation too.

be honest and open... not necessarily about your past and experiences, but about everything in general, from drugs, to alcohol to sex. If they have a question, try your best to answer it as honestly as you can. And try to get them to open up to you because I know getting a child to talk to a parent about those subjects can be a real task, lol. 

Make sure you keep it age appropriate... they don't need too much detail... haha
