I absolutely love being a mom!

My child is growing and no longer a baby. And I certainly do miss those times when she was. But she is now almost 13 and have started her menstrual cycle. My fear is that she is growing and I know that she is at that age where they experience hormones. How do I have the 'TALK' with my baby girl? I want her to confide in me with whatever goes on. But I also do not want to send the wrong message as if I am encouraging her to be ok to have safe sex or what have you. Thank you in advance!

I would get a book and sit down with her. Explain to her how our bodies work and dont forget to tell her all the risks about having sex. Pregnancy is one thing,but let her know all about STD's. Also tell her how to prevent getting a disease or pregnant-condoms,birth control. Be totaly open to her so if she has a question she can ask you without feeling embaressed. Its not that you are telling her to have sex,but at 13 she should learn how our bodies function,how babies are made,and all the risks from having sex. Find a good book and make a special time to sit down with her to explain.
