young daughters overly curious about sexuality etc

This is my first post, and I don't know for sure where to post it, so please move it if needed.

Some background: I have 2 daughters, ages 7 and 9. I am a single father, it has been just us since my youngest was about 3 months old. My oldest has recently started getting cramps and mood swings etc, and GP told me that she'll probably start her period soon. Her mother started at 9 also, not sure if that has any bearing.

Anyway, my oldest has been extremely curious about sex and sexuality in general lately. I have had talks with her, and I believe in being very open as I don't want them to hesitate to talk to me later in life. I have bought books and she has web access so she can find out anything she might be too embarrassed to ask me.

The question is, is it normal for a girl at 9 years old to be so curious?

Re: young daughters overly curious about sexuality etc

singledad: Yes it is normal. In todays world we are exposed to so much sexuality than we were years ago. It's on just about every TV show. It's important to talk to her about what's happening to her body and I think you've made the right moves so far. Do you have any females in your life that could help you explain some of the stuff to her? Your mother, sisters, aunts..... even the school nurse could probably help you out. They probably deal with it alot these days. Good luck
