I am very open with all my kids on things like this but I still think it would be good for her to have a type of "reference" to things that maybe she doesn't yet feel comfortable with.My friend-years ago-was given a book on "all things female" and I wondered if there was anything up-to-date on the market these days similar to this.
(she is 12 and is seeing a 13 year old boy so it would be especially good for her).Anyone have any ideas?

i would deffo want something that's humourous and "easy"....I can't get her to read at the best of times .... Don't want something boring that goes on and on...just something that's simple to pick up and put down again.

MiraArte - same recommendation from me!

Here's a link www.amazon.co.uk/Rough-Guide-Girl-Stuff/dp/1848360 185/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1288633636&sr=8-1

Dd has had it for a year or so and it is very well read. I know she dips in and out according to what she wants to know (certain things she wouldn't want to ask me)
I would definitely recommend it.

Posey, can I ask how old your daughter is? I have a 13/14 yo is it suitable?

She's 13, Year 9.
We have a very open and easy relationship but there are some things she obviously just likes to look at in a book.I'm not really sure what she refers to most in there, that's up to her. I'm definitely of the opinion that if she's old enough to ask the question, whether to me or the book, she's old enough to get a proper answer.
Her copy is often out and well thumbed. I certainly recommend it.

Not specifically about relationships and also written from boy's perspective but I found Diary of a Teenage Health Freak (Macfarlane & McPherson) good at that age. It's a good all-rounder covering loads of teenage issues.

If she's in a relationship it will help as there's a whole chapter on STDs and his sister thinks she might be pregnant towards the end of the book so 'dangerous side effects' of relationships are at least brought up!
