whilst it is important that your son is given the facts about sex, given that he is asking questions, however, it would not be appropriate for him to watch you and your husband. How are you feeling about him asking this?

What your son needs to be made aware of is that there are certain things about his parents relationship that are private and that this is most certainly one of those things.

There is plenty of literature available to teach children about sex, and as parents it is great if you feel able to answer his questions. As part of this you can also teach him about sex and privacy, so that he understands the inappropriateness of his question to you

Allowing him to watch you having sex equals child abuse.

Did he TELL you this? How does he even know that you guys have sex? Weird behaviour for a 9-year-old...

No way, no can do! Have you discussed sex with him yet? If not, I would suggest that you do it ASAP. At his age it's already a daily topic of conversation between the boys, maybe he's just curious.
