About what me and her daddy do when we are locked in our room, what is a period, and stuff like that. She's starting to develop now and it's got me spooked like I'm about to just lose it. I don't think that I should tell her right now, but the way she's going I think I better say something. I don't want her to learn like I did through trial and error, that's how you get messed up. I want to be her teacher in everything she goes through. More than my mother and grandparents taught me. But is it safe to tell her things now? Someone help me with this.
