My 9 year old informed me today that she knows exactly how babies are made. I asked her to explain it to me, and she knew almost every detail. I asked her how she knew all of it, and she said that a friend at school told her about it. How could this happen? I was totally not ready for this talk, nor did I think my daughter was ready and now someone else has told her. You always hope that you are the first person that introduces the topic of sex with your child and before you know it, they are hearing it at school. I feel like I have let her down......I should have been on top of this! Has anyone else encountered this same problem? I have always intended to keep open communication with my girls, and now I feel like I have overlooked the first step to establish it. Help or advice would be appreciated.
