DD's (8) diary - not sure if I should laugh or be upset by her thinking/how much she knows...

The original thread said, just so you know what I'm going on about if you read it

"Hi, I never ever post or engage, I just like to read the site, but I just couldn't resist when I found this. When I read it the first time, I admit, I laughed to myself. The more I think about it, the more I'm actually a bit ashamed that my 8 year old thinks like this, or am I genuinely just overreacting and it's all relatively innocent? If you cannot read her writing/spelling, just ask me and I'll translate it the best I can. I must admit, I do still giggle at it, but I feel bad all around! I've taken the names out for obvious reasons, sorry if it makes no sense now."

However, I am not posting the photos of the diary for this one, I'm just summarising it.

She talks about all her boyfriends and who she fancies. I seem to be okay with that, I think.

She then talks about which boys she will/will not have sex with. Specifically talks about a boy having long hair on his head, so he will have long hair on his willy, so she won't with him - not that comfortable with that.

She then goes on to say that she doesn't want babies so will do it just for fun, so she knows that it isn't just for making babies which I would have said most kids her age would just know that.

She still talks about innocent things, like who she plays Harry Potter with, etc.

Any advice please??

Ummmmm what do you want folk to say. That sounds pretty strange for an & year old.

I think thats odd for her age.

She's probably just regurgitating conversations flying around the playground, possibly with older kids.

Id be very concerned tbh

Can I ask how / why you came to be reading her diary?

It doesn't sound that odd to me. Unless there's anymore to add I wouldn't be worried.

Has she got older sisters, cousins or friends? Does she have access to an older persons diary, that she could be modelling this on? Or books/magazines?

I work in a school with this age group of children and feel this is not generally something children of this age talk about. The fact that she knows sex if for pleasure and not just to make babies would be ringing alarm bells for me. If I were you I would have a private talk with school to see if they can shed any light on why she is talking about this (albeit in her diary) it could be something and nothing but as I say I don't believe this is a subject generally discussed by 8 year old (not at my school anyway!).
