My daughter is 8 and I just am trying to get prepared for the conversation about her menstrual cycle, sex, and babies. I began mine when I was 10 and I'm sure she'll begin hers around that time also. Right now she talks about little things like asking me if she is gonna get hair under her arms and what-not and I explain to her that she is, but then since she knows it all she tells me she isn't ...Little does she know she will get it else where. My mom went about showing me tampons and pads and said what will happen, but she never discussed sex to me. She just told me I better not do it and come home pregnant. I want to have a better discussion with her about the subject matter. Her dad won't do it, he said that's on me....So the pressure is on. What do you say? Do you show them stuff? What do you do?
