    I'd say ask her to tell you what she knows about the issue, then correct any faulty information.

    As with the internetz these days, she very likely knows more than you even know exists.
    Education.

    Re: What is a good age to have the FULL sex talk?

    My dad never had any "sex talk" with me, but he knew I read a lot, he did nothing to restrict my reading material at any age, and he knew I'd ask him if I had questions, because I asked him questions about anything I wanted to know about.
    The idea of talking to my dad about sex made me really uncomfortable.
    It still does, actually.

    I never talked to my kids much about sex, either. Their dad talked to them, I guess.
    I did talk to them a little bit about puberty and stuff.
    It just seems like, by the time you feel maybe you should talk to them, they already know.
    And when you try to broach the subject, it's like "Stop! I already know all this, okay? I already know! Just stop."

    I just felt like, clearly, they were uncomfortable discussing this with me, just like I was uncomfortable discussing it with my dad.
    So I didn't force it.
    I figured they probably did already know; they're smart like I was, and they have the added benefit of the internet. There aren't many questions you can't find answers to online.

    Your right I am just naive, don't listen to a guy who's daughter is married and is an engineer. Hell what do I know?

    She went to her mom actually, but we were pretty open. I mean we are not talking watching a sex scene with your parents.

    PS I feel ya, I can't do that either but it really has no bearing.

    Proven by who??? Was every kid in the world polled? Please.

    I agree w/BD & 10. Kids will let you know when they're ready, and it comes in increments. If you have a trusting relationship with your child(ren), they will ask.

    I initiated some with my son when he was 8, and all he did was laugh ("You have a vaGINA??? Hahaaaaaaaa!!" ). So I let it go. He came to me at 10 with some questions. I tailored my responses for his age.

    Man I raised a fine daughter. She came to us as do most kids with questions. Not necessarily about sex, but Pre-sex questions. I mean it's not that difficult to figure out.

    Then you come on a message board asking for help and when it is offered you call me naive?

    At least I knew enough not to need a bunch of strangers on the Internet to help me raise my children.

    sorry you are just wrong, they MIGHT ask, there is no promise and unless my school district, friends people i grew up with have the most untrusting realationships with thier parents I say its a save "guess" that most kids dont ask cause very few of my friends did, I didnt ask either and I totally trusted my parents, I MIGHT have however but they beat me to it
