I've always just told them the truth. They don't seem disturbed by knowing how babies are made and born. Especially since I had two of them at home, it seems to be natural to them. They also watch a lot of documentary movies about animals and have seen animal births, so they know how that works.

LOL, well, I can see how this would be new for you because you don't already have girls, but I just call it a vagina. The kids really are pretty matter-of-fact; they know babies are born out of a woman's vagina and it is no big deal to them. You might have to talk about the parts first, though, lol.

I would tell the truth as well and also use the word Vagina, or what-ever word you normally use. Just tell him to keep the info to himself and it's not up to him to tell his friends, it's their mommy's job to tell them...but be warned that he still may tell his friends what he found out lol

Oh, and yes, there is also a conversation needed about what is appropriate to shout about in public, or share at school, etc. Max recently got into an argument at school about God, and the teacher handled it really well - she said she would share a secret with them, that it is not OK to talk about God at school. They seem to be cool with that now, so no more fist fights over whether or not He exists, lol. Maybe you could do something like that about vaginas, lol.

LOL at the visual of a bunch of boys on the playground at recess arguing whether or not vaginas exist!

LOL, I thought of that after I typed it - and in a way it's possible, since boys will likely not get to first base for many years yet, lol. I just meant you need to talk about how you don't discuss vaginas at school.

lol Karina.

I told my boys that mommies have a special hole that babies come out of. One of them asked if it was the same hole poop comes out of and I told him no, it's a different one but it's like that. Good luck! Smile

i have a completely different approach to 5 yr old girls.................i just told lucy i go to the hospital and the doctor will help the baby out safely.......i'm not one to go into too much detail......5 is a tricky age.....they have a need to know.....but girls have a tendency to over react and overanalyze so for me....the less they know the better......she has her whole life to learn about the vagina and babies coming out of it.........trust me .........if i told lucy that right now......she would have mystery pain in her doodlebug EVERY.single.time. she has to pee, have an itch, have her undies touch..........etc.........5 yr olds can have a real OCD mentality and she would probably have tears because she thinks she is having a baby...........i kid you not!!!!!!!!!!!

My grand mother said the same thing.. Seeing he is a boy It seem kinda awkward to me.
he he don't know about these things ... We don't allow them to watch Tv. I think more kids will understand if they have seen or been exposed to this & then ask mommy and she then tell them. I just don't want him so curious where he ask someone and they tell him in a way that is inapporiate and not the way I would tell him.

I just needed some advice on what to say if it come up again .. and I know it will as long as baby is still inside of me ... LOL
