Is this bad? My six year old son was asking about babies, he knows they are in our bellies but how do they come out. I did not want to lie to him, so I showed him some videos on YouTube of dogs giving birth. He was fascinated by it, but thought is was gross at the same time. At first he thought the puppies were poop, but I said no they were in a protective sack that the mommy licks it off of them. Then he said oh I think that would be really warm and toasty I want to be in a sack. LOL I said you were but the doctors and nurses cleaned you up. Is it bad that I let him watch that? I just followed my instincts, I didn't know what else to do. He loved it. I wanted to post this in one of my Christian groups, but I thought I would be frowned upon. So I am asking in this section anonymously.Answer Question

My son, who just turned 7, was asking these questions so I let him be with me while our dog had puppies. I explained to process as it was happening and compared it to humans. Its part of life and they should know the truth so they are not only learning what the kids at school teach them and the crude things kids say, he knows what it is now and has no reason to ask his friends.
