It's best to be honest and age appropriate.

I agree. When I was growing up we were basically told it was bad and that was it. I want me kids to know it is a good thing but only at the right time.
Quoting SarahSuzyQ:

I think you have to start early so it's not something that's shameful, but kids still understand that it's private.

Be honest and straightforward with them.

I haven't yet but I will try to tell them the truth and let them know they can come to us about anything they need or any questions they have :)

A man should do at least the initial talk to boys, and individually.

I have not dealt with this yet with this child, but I do know to be honest, but only give them the info they are ready for.

That is a good idea!!  Then they are not rolling their eyes at you!!

Quoting MamaBear2cubs:

I think asking them what they know would be a good start.

Honestly and age appropriate.
