  • for sex questions look into these books:
    How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & How to Listen So Kids Will Talk. by Faber, Adele and Elaine Mazlish
    When Benjamin Wants To Know: Family Conversations about the "Facts of Life." by Caine, Dona
    It's So Amazing!: A Book about Eggs, Sperm, Birth, Babies, and Families. by Harris, Robie H

    For religious quesitons I would consider meeting with a priest, pastor, reverand, or other member of clergy or religious leader depending on your own religious beliefs and practices!

  • There are many great books at the library to read together. The librarian can help you. Until then, answer his questions simply when he asks you.

  • i agree with everyone on this. but what i have told my kids about how babies get here was that their daddy gave me a special seed and that is how they got in my tummy. they are 7 and 6 when they get older if they want to know i will add to it
