I have no idea what I would do but am truly horrified in the culture today. I hate the way this stuff is marketed to children and wonder what is wrong with parents who encourage it.

Re: 3rd grade sexy talk -- WWYD?

Thanks for all the input!

I agree that it's really important for her to trust me and be able to talk about what's going on at school without fearing my response. That's why I need to get it right.

I guess I should have seen this coming. Only a month ago she was asking Santa for a tool box. Now she's sexy!

Re: 3rd grade sexy talk -- WWYD?

When I was in third grade, my best friend and I would play teenage pregnancy / labour and delivery . I have no idea why, but it was complete childish innocence and natural curiosity, notwithstanding the subject matter. We were very sheltered, I wasn't allowed to listen to any pop music, I wasn't even allowed to watch "Friends" until I was 14. My mum was horrified obviously, haha, but to me there was nothing sinister or suggestive about it.

I just wanted to reassure you that just because your daughter is curious about sexiness and sex appeal doesn't mean she's lost her innocence.

Otherwise, I'm useless. Just couldn't read and not offer something.

Thanks. I remember reading my friend's older sister's Seventeen and pretending that Barbie got pregnant from swimming with Ken (obviously didn't know how it really happened). I know it's mostly innocent. I'm just not sure how or if I should address it.
