My daughter will be in jr high next month and is going through puberty, so we've been having akward talks about friends and boys. Is there any easy way to explain certain things that I feel she shouldn't know? Or jus tell her an let it go over her head or shock her? Finding out about boy parts an crushes was uncomfortable but fine an I'm glad she came to me. Periods, she's mature about but now I had to explain self harming/suicide to her. Our friend was mad and said our daughters can't hang out anymore cus mine is a bad influence and I said I don't think he fully understands what an "emo" kid is an y his daughter calls herself that. So she was in her eyes trying to share something in common w her and sent 3 pics of girls cutting their wrists. I asked her y she would do that an she said idk, Audree an Christine where shareing pics like that. I had an hr long talk about it w her. My daughter would never tell a girl it's ok to harm herself.
