I'll be honest, I don't know how comfortable I am with the "penis goes into vagina" conversation with a kid in elementary school.I mean I can just imagne the follow up questions to this "can the man put his penis anywhere else, and why Mommy"? I mean like what would I say to that?!?!?!?! :boggled:

In response to pathdr2b's post - I told my kids about the mechanics short and to the point, without using any funny names for body parts. That's all they want to know at their age anyway. But I was more specific than "getting real close" (which is about as much information as I ever received from my parents).
So as I'm reading this (there's no time like the present, right?) I ask her "do you know HOW people have sex". She says, "No, but I'll take a guess at it. It's when two people get naked". Then I say, "you don't have to be naked to have sex". She gets a puzzled look on her face. Then I say, "are kids at you kids talking about sex?" And she says No,... then I say "well what about that balls comment from a few months ago and that Britney/Justin comments". She says "well tenicles are not the same thing and nobody cares about Britney and Justin anymore".

You probably won't have to. Her classmates are probably already filling in the details if she's anywhere past age 10 or so.
