  • Maybe it's time to get a basic book and have a basic discussion about male/female parts and then privacy.

  • Explain it to them the best you can in a way that they understand. Explain to them that that area is private that you don't share it with others, etc. Talking is the best thing you can do.

  • There are books and videos for kids about basic anatomy and how babies happen and get born. You might look in the bookstore or library. That would be a good way to get a discussion going. Some video stores have educational DVDs for free and they might have one.

    There might be something online if you don't find a book or DVD you like.

  • Maybe it's time to sit down and have "the talk". They obviously remember (my kid remembers stuff from when he was TWO LOL)

    You don't need a book, you don't need a video. You just need some quite discussion time with the boys.

    At the least, just answer their questions honestly, reinforcing the idea that it's okay to come and talk to their parents, but these are private discussions and some things are just not discussed in public.
