    Before we go any further, 'Kid' could span quite a few years... are we talking under 8 say , or somewhere between that and teen ? or what ?

    I'm sure you can deal with sorting it out between you and your lady though. - Good Luck bro

    I had to field some fairly challenging ones about death from my four year old while pottering around the rather fine new mummy exhibition

    http://www.britishmuseum.org/whats_o...ent_lives.aspx

    at the British Museum the other day. She suddenly grasped that mummies contain real people who clearly were no longer getting out much and that this had wider implications...

    I'll take sex any day of the week.

    Mind you, I don't think I'm going to take her to this anytime soon:

    7yo girl. Didn't go too bad though. Apparently a girl in her class told her it's something grownups do naked. So first she asked my wife what it was, and my wife called me, when I stopped coughing I asked her what she wanted to know and she just wanted to confirm that there is indeed nakedness involved. After I confirmed it, she said "that's gross!" and that was that. Let's hope it stays that way for a few more years.

    We have a 13 yr old dominican girl who we help out. We got her into school and she stays over some nights. Bearing in mind my eldest is a 9 yr old boy there have been some interesting changes in the direction of some conversations in our house when she is around.
