  • I assume he asked. Just say, "boys have those and girls do not" they don't usually need a big explanation, just a simple answer to one question at a time.

  • I just told my son that boys have penises and girls don't. When he asked why I told him "Because that's the way the Goddess made us" and he was fine with that. (You can substitute your deity ofcourse). Even still he was freaked out when he first saw me changing my daughter's diaper. He was 4 and exclaimed "Mommy! Where's her penis? What happened? Did it fall off?" and then he began to cry because he thought someone hurt her and took away her penis. lol

  • Like the other moms said... keep it simple. Boys have them, girls don't. That's just the way we are made.
