At some point in a child’s life the dreaded questions will come in regards to babies, sex and where did I come from? Depending on the age of the child and what is going on in his or her life will depend on the questions. If you or a family member is expecting soon then a question of, “Where do babies come from?” will probably be asked.
Information is abundant these days. Look online and you can find answers to just about anything you want to know about. Kids will also hear things from school and older children. Kids are also nosey by nature and will hear and see things that you might not think that have heard or seen. Wouldn’t you rather their information comes from you, the parent? That any question that your child might have is asked of you? Of course, that is what all parents want.

The best thing for you to do when questions come up is to answer them as soon as they are asked. Don’t delay or the child will only become more curious and seek the answer elsewhere and possibly getting wrong information. Questions are perfectly natural all kids ask them. The trick is to make your answer as simplistic as possible according to the age of the child. The younger the child the more simple the answer should be. There is no need to elaborate or go into detail unless there are more questions. Usually younger children will only ask one question at a time and are generally satisfied with a simple answer. Don’t be embarrassed to answer the questions.
