this sounds like a good way to explain it. now if he asks how the seeds get in there, what do i say? he asks A LOT of questions...

see my friend says that she thinks is a kid knows stuff about sex/ sexual body parts, people may think hes being sexually abused... i didnt think so until she said this, now im kinda nervous to tell him a lot.
No, thats just stupid....He is not being abused and that is normal behavior.

If he asks how they get there tell him that grown men, like his father, make the seeds in their testicles and someday when he is grown and ready to have a wife and make babies he will make seeds too. Tell him that he is too young to make seeds and have a wife and someday he will be ready to.

All my kids have asked around that age because I have been pregnant a lot. So we answer the best we can. I use the word seed and egg because its easy for a child to visualize over the word sperm...my son asked what the seeds look like and we told him that they look like baby tadpoles and we showed him a picture of tadpoles.. That was all it took.
