I agree to keep things positive however, I think you have to have age appropriate conversations with your child. I have 12 year old boy/girl twins. My daughter is older mentally than my son. The conversations have to be different with what they can handle.

Glad that mine are older and we are past that stage.

Ditto

 I am just honest and open. Sex is not something I shy up about. I want my children to come to me with sex questions.

 I try to give accurate information based on their maturity level. When they start asking questions I ask about it

I agree with the honest approach. I think I'll struggle with how to present the information, though. My parents never talked to me about sex. Ever. Except to say that "boys only want one thing," etc. :/

I am very open to DD I would much rather her know  from me rather than from a kid or kids in this big wide world .. I believe kids are growing up way to fast these days.

Definitely in a positive way. My daughter is 10 and I think I will give her that talk around age 12.

Be straight forward and honest.

Not looking forward to it, but I'll be honest (yet uncomfortable).
