Daughter caught us having sex. What should we do?

Me (31) and my wife (33) have been together for 16 years. We have two daughters together who are 16 and 2.

The other night, me and my wife were having sex. Our 2 year old came in the room cause she had a nightmare. So we stopped what we were doing.

Now my wife is freaking out thinking we traumatized our child, but I don’t think she’s old enough to even know what we were doing.

Should we just leave it be?

Superb Opinion

  • Oh definitely leave it. 100% you didn't traumatize your child. No chance. A 2 year old would certainly have no idea what was happening. The memory will mean NOTHING to a two year old... unless you make this memorable for her.

    Please even google this. I am sure that the consensus among most people who are experts in such things will help her feel better.

    I have a 2 and-a-half year old nephew who I love more than anyone else in this world. I have a good age-reference. Leave it be. Definitely leave it be. 🙂

  • Our oldest son appeared out of nowhere one night. He was three or four at the time. We just pretended that nothing was going on. He is 24 and seems pretty well adjusted to me.

    • Thanks for the MHO.

  • Everyone saying she won't remember but she will. I remember everything and it fcked me up. It sucks to remember your mothers moans etc. I grew up wanting sexual revenge for her to catch me having sex so that she could feel the pain i felt when realizing we’re not as innocent as we seem. Nonetheless, you're daughter will be fine. She just may grow up to be a bit freaky

    • Fck i had a lotta typos

    • Our 16 year old heard us once. It was so awkward when she was pissed at us the next morning.

    • I was pissed age 5-17 😂

  • She’s fine. Don’t worry. Our 4 year old came running downstairs after a night air and my naked husband scooped him up and put him to bed. She won’t remember it or think it’s weird.

    • *nightmare

    • I was just about to ask what a "night air" was. I figured it was a weird sex thing.

    • Lol. Oh gag. Always autocorrecting to weird words.

  • If she asks, then explain simply. Otherwise just forget about it.

  • She'll probably be okay.
    That reminds me of when my son was little and caught me and my wife kissing.
    He was so mad 😠. LoL!

  • Lock your door.

    • We got caught up in the moment.

  • Leave it be, the age of 2 will be very unlikely remember anything. she most likely to scared to think of anything but get to the safety of mommy and daddy

  • I don't believe a 2 year old would have any sense as to what was going on. Leaving it be is my suggestion.

  • Yeah, just leave it be. Most people would just laugh the situation off. Lock the door in the future.

  • she's very much over reacting. she's 2, she will not remember.

  • Let it go.

  • Forget it for now, funny memory later

  • A 2 year old has no concept of sex.

    So don't worry.

  • Let her watch. And explain to her. My wife and I did. U be surprised

  • You and her became parents as teens?

    • Yep. I was 15 and she was 17 when our oldest daughter was born. Been together ever since.
