I think it is. A friend whose son I watch texted me "just so you know DS saw my period when we were in the bathroom together. He asked what it was and I told him girls vaginas bleed sometimes but, it doesn't hurt" I'm assuming she told me so if he starts talking about bleeding vaginas I will know why.
I have a son his age & he is always coming in the bathroom when I'm in there (the door doesn't lock). He is usually playing with a toy or with the water in the sink & I try to be discreet. He has seen my boxes of tampons & pads in the bathroom & knows they are for girls but, that's it. It is more difficult when we are out to be discrete in a public restroom, but, I do what I can.
But, in the midst of all this I've managed to not let him see actual blood from my period or me changing pads etc.
Does anyone else think that was wierd? I think you should be honest when kids ask question but, he's only a 4 y/o. What do you think?
