I can't say I got the impression that your son is "masturbating" and was feeling guilty...where of course that is a possiblitity, but I don't think the questions he was asking you go hand in hand with what he may or may not be doing during his "private time". It sounds as though he was sincerly concerned with what he may have been hearing from other kids in school. Seeing that this was a VERY well known case, and most parents have probably made mention of it in some shape or form (in front of their kids no less) and those kids in turn talk about what they hear from home, at school, It seems he was naturally curious thats all. I am impressed that he felt sure enough to begin the converstaion...even if he felt uncomfortable, he still made a great effort.What a great kid! :cool: As for getting into the physicalities of the "sex" talk. I think what you were trying to say was do you go into detail how the actual sex act is performed in order to create a life ( and/or have " ADULT Fun") My children are only 2 1/2 and 6 months girl first, boy second. As a young parent (26) I do plan on devulging ALL details to my DD and son when they are old enough to comprehend sexual feelings.Meaning, when they realize that there bodies are sexual. What age that might be? can't say...each child is different. But in this day and age when I hear stories about young girls at 10-11 performing oral sex because they think its safer...I believe 100% that our children need to be educated very early on.Education is what keeps them safe.NOT ignorance! I'm talking like as early as 5-6 years old! Of course you need to sensor yourself and make your talk age appropriate. A 5 year old should in NO WAY know what oral sex is :eek: !!! You get the drift I'm sure. But at 9, if he is asking questions like that...there is more questions in his head that he won't ask...unless there is a good open relationship. Really, I think its great that you spoke with him. I hope I have a great relationship with my kids.Good luck :wave:
