My 10 year old niece spent the night last night, and is asking me questions about sex and religion. I called her mom to see how she wanted me to handle the questions, and she told me to use my judgement. Not very helpful! Now, my niece was molested when she was four, but she doesn't remember any of it. So, her mom told her about it! Also, her mom was molested several times as a child, and even told my niece about that! I have answered her honestly, giving bits of info at a time, and letting her ask for more info if she seems to want more; but the questions and comments are completely blowing me away. My oldest is five and I am not prepared for this! She seems to have access to information that she is way too young for. One minute she amazes me with what she says and thinks of, then the next she is very immature and actually "baby talks." Is this normal for her age? She is very intelligent and articulate, but almost seems to have two personalities! How much information is appropriate at this age regarding sex and religion? She says things like "I don't know if I believe in Christianity, I'm not sure what I believe in yet," and that she is developing (is 10 early), and makes comments about her dad's "magazines." I can handle questions about periods and boys, but I don't know what to say when she brings up her mom's childhood. Should I approach her mom about it? I am glad my niece trusts me, and I want her to always be able to come to me if she feels she can't go to her mom, but I don't know what is appropriate or not. Thank you for any and all advice!
