Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I have two daughters and with the older one have been completely honest about body parts.  Mommy has blood once a month and that means no baby is growing.  The first time she asked me about the blood I felt anxious but now it is no big deal.  Start young with age appropriate descriptions and use real words.  You get to practice through any embarrassment when they are young and your kids learn to trust you.
thank you for that, and well said. surprisingly, you are the only one that has commented yet. i was hoping more people would respond, but oh well
When my daughter is old enough you bet she's getting the talk.. but I probably won't go as overboard as my mom did with the charts and all that nonsence. But, let's face it, it takes a very special person to not have sex as a teenager. So many pressures, I defenitely CAN wait for my 5 month old daughter to been a teen.
My mother tried to have the talk with me when I was 10 and she was pregnant with my sister. I must say she would have done a very good job except that I already knew! My older neighbor had told me when I was 8. I told my mom what I knew and she agreed my information was correct. The point is, young girls have the ability to understand the basics of sex, periods, pregnancy, etc.I agree there is a lot of pressure to have sex as a teen, and that is why it is so important to discuss birth control with your daughter.Good luck with your endeavor, Pink paisley.
I think parents should also teach boys about sex as well as the girls.
