I think it's pretty normal if they do :D And you shouldn't be embarrassed to explain. It's something natural after all, so there should be no problems to talk about sex.

I'm not embarrassed about it. I just think this is something they should try to understand it through books. I will do my part to help their confusion by secrectly slipping in their pockets pamphlets about safe sex, sexual transmitted diseases, wet dreams, body gone through changes, etc. I'm not gonna wait for them to ask questions.

My parent never told me about this but I think you should tell children when they have understanding enough about it and control themself.

sorry but i must tell you that your position its a bit old fashion, my god... you are saying that you will avoid your kids whenever they try to talk about sex?! im surprised about that, specially coming from you, when i mean talk about sex im not saying that you should tell them where do you like to do it or how, but yes all the precautions they should play attention due to the huge number of problems they could have with the lack of information.

Maybe I will change in the future, but right now my mind is set on no talk sex when my kids are not teenagers, and no sexual activities when they're not over 18.

If they're under 13 and wanted to know, they have the permission to wander through books. If they wanted to hear from me, I'm not gonna give them the answers they wanted. Instead, I'll make them understand the whole course of human body and STD's well. Then, they'll get to know what the heck is Kama Sutra when they're teens. :twisted:
