Re: Can someone help me answer this "birds and bees" question for my 5.5 yr old?
I agree with this. My eleven year old STILL doesn't know about sex and I'm pretty positive of this because she isn't really around anyone to talk about it with. (she's homeschooled). Now I don't know how or when to bring it up. My almost nine year old should be told too. They can't even handle kissing. How in the blazes do I talk about sex!

I'd much rather tell a very young child where babies come from than try to talk to a preteen who still thinks the stork is involved.
The book Where Did I Come From is actually perfect for her age (it's listed as 6 and up but I had it much earlier and so did my niece). http://www.amazon.com/Where-Did-Come.../dp/0818402539
