Birds and Bees...a little old fasioned

I noticed many people concerned with when and weather or not to do te "Birds and Bees" talk.
Im not sure if Im an oddity or not, but when I was young (Im talkin really young, maybe from the age of 2) Sex and puberty were never things I had to be talked to about, they were just common knowledge. I learned about them gradually as I learned about the world.
I always knew about sex, it wasnt a dirty thing... just a thing that mommys and daddys did.
With my children it was and is the same thing. My youngest (3) knows about where babies come and my oldest (7) knows that later, she will get her period.
Im just curious as to what other parents think about that. what concerns do you have about them learning at a young age?

Well its good that they know a young age that it is common and not something to be ashamed of. But even though your 3 year old know where babies come from and your 7 year old know she will get a period they don't know all the details of that. They have a vague idea right? Its the going into detail and seperating the facts from myths that you have a talk about as they get older.
