I work with a girl that spares no details when it comes to sex with her 4 yr old ds and 5 yr old ss. She told them babies come from a girls vagina and boys have to put their penis into the vagina to make babies. This honestly made me want to puke all over her lol her ss's mom isn't involved but I still think this is out of line for any kids that age.....

what do you think?

EDIT:

I also think it's great she was honest, but for such young children it's too much. The stork or cabbage patch story is nonsense. She could have been just as honest but a little more age appropriate.

Also I didn't argue with her or have any debate because I work with this girl, I left where she was and let another coworker of mine kindly discuss her thoughts to the mom lol

I started sex Ed when my dd was 4. No I do not think it is too young.

If they are old enough to ask, they are old enough to know. It is rather important to tell them the truth when they asked, for so many reasons, one of them knowing that it's inappropriate for others to touch them in places or to do those things to them. Not to mention that it should be between two consenting adults.

If thats how she chooses to do it, I see no problem with it. They hear worse things in school.

Why exactly does this make you "want to puke all over her"? It's the truth. Would it be better to tell them that mothers find babies in the dewy cabbage patches at first sunlight?

A bit over dramatic aren't you?

No I just think its tooo young for such details. When my dd asks I'll tell her babies grow in their mommys belly. At 4 and 5 I feel that is sufficient enough info for them.

And it makes me want to throw up because she explained to her toddlers how adults have sex. That's disgusting to me

That's too young, IMO. Kids like that are the ones that run their mouth to kids whose parents have chosen not to discuss sex and childbirth with them. Just because a 5 year old ask where babies come from does not mean it's time to learn about sex.

I did that with my kids around that age.  They asked the questions and I answered honestly.  No point in doing it any other way.

Babies don't grow in bellies either...
