Yes, my 11 year old started this conversation while I was merging into freeway traffic!! She said that waiting that long just "didn't make sence to her" and that they were telling them to wait both in school and church. Personally her father and I are now christians and DO believe in waiting, but we ourselves did not. I told her her virginity was a very special gift. It can only be given away once. You never get it back. I told her we would pray some about it and I trusted her to make the right choice. Any other advice? She is developing early just like I did and I know she will have the boys attention next year in middle school. I don't want her experementing this young!! I am a nurse and usually get pretty graphic with my girls when it comes to explaining why you shouldn't do something. But I never expected to have to be on this topic at age 11! Any help?
