My DD understands sex (kind of)

Postby OnceHarmony on Mon Feb 04, 2013 12:47 pm

I asked her the other day if she knew what sex meant (this question didn't come out of the blue. There was a context :) ). She pointed to her private parts area and then gave me a hug with a tiny bit of up and down action. Yep, she understands what sex is. I don't know why but I feel I have to add we were both clothed and in public. :lol:

Oh gosh! Thats...funny. How old is she? My dd asked how a baby comes out (she's 7) I said 'your tummy muscles push the baby out through the baby hole" She replies "Oh. Well that's not what happened on the doctor movie that I watched at school!" so now I get to have a conversation with her teacher :eek: I had NO idea they were showing birthing videos to grade 1 classes nowadays.

"The Baby Hole"??? :eek: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :shock:

My 7 year old son would happily tell your dd that "the baby whole" is called a vagina! 8) :lol:

OnceHarmony... Last summer while camping I told my son to climb over a "hump" and he said "Hump? You mean like when a boy humps on top of a girl?" :eek: ... That one took me off gaurd!

As a side note - a great movie to introduce the concept of birth is Milo and Otis. My kids loved it (I say loved as ds now says the birth part is gross now he's older LOL). Wish I'd known about the animals being born before we watched it though so I could have been prepared :)

We taught all the older kids, before kindergarten, where they came from, with appropriate,simple language -- we do use the correct names for all the body parts.

BUT, even though we've carefully explained it (along with our own moral beliefs about sex) and will continue to explain sexuality as they grow..... this happened the other day.

DH and I were kissing in the kitchen. Six-y-o DD comes in and announces in a loud voice, "Ewwww!!!! Stop that! You two are having SEX in the kitchen! Arghhhhh!!!!!"

"We are not! We're kissing."

"Oh yes you are. Oh, gross, gross!!!" And runs away.

My 10 year old dd said to us as DH & I were having a hug & a kiss in the kitchen the other day - "yuck, you two are mating!" :lol:

I said "no we aren't because we still have our clothes on!" :wink:

Baby hole :lol: oh dear how unfortunate that your child is so uneducated! Now if you had had her over for dinner a couple years ago when my dd stated that Vagina was "I think it's in France" Thank Goodness my son corrected her and said "No E, it's closer to Ontario actually..."
Read the sarcasm in all that.
WOW! They were Actually discussing Regina (I hoped), but I'm not sure that helps make them sound any smarter ;)

did you notice the :lol: :lol: :lol: at all? Or what I shared about my children's conversation after? I was joking. I didn't think that would be in question at all. I think it's cute and all children are different. I tell my son to wash his bit's and pieces. Does that mean he doesn't know the true names? All my kids are aware and what we choose to call them is up to us. My comments shouldn't have caused offense when it was followed by that little story and giggles :(
