Re: Can someone help me answer this "birds and bees" question for my 5.5 yr old?
"How did it feel" ?! Hilarious.
I was thankful that when I told my dd about how it happens that she didn't ask anymore questions.
It's embarrassing and awkward to us but really no different then telling them about any other bodily function. I don't think there is ever an age that is 'too soon'. If they ask the question, just answer it.
A friend's 8yr old, upon finding out that her father and new wife were planning on having a baby said to her mom :"um.. so does that mean they will have to do 'that thing'". Mom replied, "yes, they will probably have to do it once".
