Our expert says:
ALL kids know something about sex, from an earlier age than their parents suspect. Much of that they know is incorrect or inaccurate. And other kids ( and wirse still, some nasty people ) will be keen to tell them, accurate or inaccurate. So don't panic, this is clearly a good time to start discussing sex with her.
Maria's advice is good, as usual, and such a book ( there's quite a selection, and a good shop will have a range for you to look at ) can make it easier. Though it makes sense for the school to warn them against predators, its unfortunate if they get left with the impression that sex is necessarily predatory. Talk also about love, and relationships, and sex being great within such a committed relationship.
