Andrew, Joanie and Chuck are getting real as they ask their kids' toughest and most direct questions. On everything from grades to whether Dad was ever in love before he met mom, we hope these kids are ready for honest answers!

 I don't think there really is a hard question kids . I've always answered my kids questions openly and honestly. So honestly that often my answer is 'for ME....xyz....but all people are different. At the end of the day they just need to make the choice that best fits their believes and that will allow them a clear conscience at the end of the day.'

We are honest and only tell them what they need to know.

I'm all about honest answers at their level. If you're open with them, they'll be more lie,ly to turn to you always.

 We have been up front and open since they were young. I believe that is the only way to be. Yes, we answer their questions.

I fully agree with this.

I answer my kids to the best of my ability, openly and honestly, as detailed as I feel they can understand, or I want them to know.  If I don't know, we look it up.

That's what we do too.  Sometimes their questions are just too hard to answer for their ages.

My oldest 7 year old was asking about how babies came about and we looked up on youtube.com to see some videos about how the sperm reaches the egg and found a really funny and cute one that cracked them up.  I wasn't ready to tell them how that sperm gets from the man to the woman's egg LOL
