  • Give as much info as they seem interested in. They'll hear it from you or a kid on the bus. Hopefully you will be more accurate with your information.

  • I would start with simple answers and slowly give more information as he asks more questions--I would not give him any more info than he needs at this age.

  • Tell them. My kids all know. I start explaining at about 5. Kids learn too young and I want to be the one to give them the facts. Not some kid at school or their buddy down the street.
