My daughter, who is now 10, asked when she was 4 years old where babies come from. I told her. It's the best decision I ever made in teaching her about life. My Mom wouldn't even talk to me about sex. She made it seem like it was dirty and wrong, so I got all my info from the playground. I didn't want it to be that way for my daughter. She knows what sex is about, and knows how I feel about the abstinence issue, but above all, I have told her that when she is ready to have sex, I will not be angry with her, but I will make sure that she knows how to protect herself against unwanted pregnany and STD's. And she doesn't think of sex as some awesome thing that will change her whole life. It's just one of the many things that she needs to learn about life, and one of the many things that she will one day experience as a part of being an adult. Another issue that I feel strongly about on this subject is that the issue of morality, and when is it OK to have sex with someone, should come from the home, not from school. It's a service that parents owe to their children, to instill values. Too often the moral issue and the pure education of what the physical act of sex entails become intertwined. Whether it's right or wrong at certain times is a discussion that parents should have with their children, according to their beliefs. And the physiology of sex should be taught in the home first, then REINFORCED at school, not "the school movie" in 4th grade being the only info a child gets. OK, off my soapbox now.
