9-Year-old Asking About Sex

My daughter has asked me what the word sex means and what sex is. She is 9. I explained to her that some questions are very difficult to answer and that I would like some time to think about it so I answer it the best way I can. She accepted that but I feel I need to give her an answer soon. Any suggestions? How much should a 9-year-old know? It's obvious someone, probably a kid at school, has used the word or talked about it. Otherwise she wouldn't be asking. I do realize she could have also gotten it from TV. We have already talked about...

Would You Let Your 9 Year Old Walk Home from School?

My 9 year old son wants to walk to his friend's house after school on Friday. He would be walking with his friend & the distance is probably less than a mile. The neighborhood is good, but I'm nervous. I won't be home until around 6 because I work. My son has told me that his friend's parents think that I am too overly protective. I have a neighbor in law enforcement that mentioned that there are 5 pedaphiles (excuse the spelling) in the area. They aparently don't show up on the internet list for various reasons such as they are still...

Daycare During a Maternity Leave

I am not trying to judge her, I just do not understand why she...
