My daughter is 9 1/2 years old. She has just started asking questions about her body (she has friends developing already). We have always been very open about the correct names of body parts,etc. Just wondering how much do you tell her? I know to only answer what she is asking (don't overwhelm her), but I also know she has some friends from school that have already had the talk with their parents, so I'm not sure if she is getting info from them and just not asking us or ????? I don't want her to get wrong info and I want her to feel comfortable talking to me, but I also don't want to give her info that she is not ready for. We have purchased the American Girl books about your body, friendships, feelings, etc. to help, but any other ideas/info would be appreciated! Thanks!
