  • tell him the truth... All people && animals do it, it's your body's way of getting rid of the rest of the food you eat after it has pulled all the vitamins, nutrients, && other useful things out of it.

  • Tell him the truth. That pooping is the bodies way of getting rid all the stuff the body doesn't need.

  • Oh my goodness. Just say everybody eats. Everybody poops. Pooping is private.

  • Answer with the truth. Yes. Everyone does it. Not to sound rude, but I don't understand why you don't know how to answer him. It strikes me as one of the easier questions to answer. Of course, my 5 yr old expects me to tell him how grasshoppers make babies, so I'd be thrilled with a "do girls poop?" question. lol

  • Buy him this book called Everyone Poops. My son loves it... and it's very cute and informative.

  • Why don't you know how to answer this?
    It is so important to raise our children with positive body images and respect for every body and all of the functions.
