16. We aren't THAT open

but I'm not convinced it wouldn't be a good thing to be more open than most people are.

I only had brothers so we didn't know about any of this stuff until high school and then I went to a private christian school so we still didn't know anything about it yet managed to probably offend every girl in high school over it.

By the time my daughter was born I was determined that she not be subjected to that kind of buffoonery so, while we were never haha winky winky jokey about it we did just treat it as a natural part of life that girls go through. My daughter has no problem asking me to pick her up pads on my way home from work and I've been buying her birth control pills since she was about 13. (In fact, on a semi-related note, I just found out yesterday how much they would cost if I didn't have insurance - great godamighty!)

Her brothers were older enough that they were already moved out by the time she had to worry about any of it but I think they would have handled it pretty well.l I know for a fact when my oldest was in high school he would go to the store for his girlfriend on occasion. It really just wasn't a big deal.
