My daughter was thought the basics about sex, (how to make babies) when she was nine years old. I remember she asked if she could have a couple of children books from the library that explained the basics of sex. At the time she had a cousin over who was a little older and she was very willing to read and explain things to my daughter.
I'm not sure if that is too young, but I feel that once a child is asking questions that we as parents should be honest and explain things on their age level. I never had problems answering questions to my daughter. What do you as parents think is the right age for a child to talk about sex?
