my daughter is nine and I came to pick her up from school. When we got home I told her to get in the shower becuase we were expecting company later that evening, and I went into her room to check her bag for homework and she was changing and she was completly in the "nude" she screamed and covered up down there I noticed before she could hide she had some hair. She never told me and it agrivates me a little she ran into the bathroom before I could talk to her. Do you think im being stupid, I think i should talk to her, but should I?

"The care and keeping of you-body book for girls" is great to discuss this. I brought it for my 9 yr old and she learned a lot reading it

It's just a part of growing up, i'd defo think that you should talk to her about the changes that are occurring within her body, it's early but I think you have to tell her the facts, and help her to understand that there's nothing wrong with her and that it's a part of growing up. She needs to know it's nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about, and to understand that no topic is taboo.
