Although I think most kids start thinking about sex a little older than your daughter it can and does happen at her age. If you haven't already begin the conversations with her and be open and non juddgmental or she will tune you out. Listen to what she has to say and even at her age her feelings are real to her. I'm not sure what values you want to instill in your daughter but at least you want to talk about physical needs, emotional needs and birth control and condoms. Some 13 year olds do have sex and it's not the end of the world even though it's hard for us to look at it objectively. But I do think your first step is to make sure the lines of communication are open and you really listen to what she has to say. The mistake many parents make (myself included) is to talk and not listen when our teens have issues Good luck and let us know how it works out.
