My when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter my son was 4 getting ready to be 5 so he was at that curious stage of wanting to know how everything worked and happens and my husband have a rule that we will be honest with our children but explain things in age appropriate ways because we believe if you are honest with your children they can feel comfortable enough to be honest with you as well so he when asked how the baby got in my tummy so I told him "daddy put aseed into my tummy that grows into a baby and mommy has to help it grow til its ready to come" then he asked what the baby looks like so I installed "baby center" app on my phone to show him the stages of growth. A few days later he comes to me upset telling me I had lied to him and it "hurt his heart" confused I asked what he was talking about so he told me I said daddy put a seed in my tummy and that's not what happens and he started explaining "how babies are made" in detail. I asked who had told him how babies where made and he told me the picture thing you put on your phone has the videos (which I didn't really pay mind to) and he watched them so my husband and I sat down with him and apologized that he felt we lied to him but we didn't think he was old enough to know those details just yet. Well he is now 6 and when people ask what he wants to be when he grows up he says he want to go in to the Army to pay for school and be an obstetrician then people look at us weird and say he's to young to know what that is and stuff well yesterday some lady started yelling at me telling me I was a horrible person for exposing my children to that stuff so young and my husband and I should be in jail for that because its abuse.
BTW my son is 6 but is very wise beyond his year to where his teachers want to move him up a grade.
PLEASE NO RUDE COMMENTS...
