5 TIPS ON EXPLAINING AWAY THE STORK

The day will come for every parent when their child will ask the all important question: “Where do babies come from?” For many parents, this moment can cause stress and pressure that they are just not ready for. When kids are small, it’s easy to give little ones a simple answer of how a baby is put in mommy’s tummy when two people love each other very much, but as kids get older that answer is just not good enough. Here are 5 ways to tell the truth to kids and explain away the stork:

Get an early start- It’s important to teach kids the correct names for their body parts and help them understand that boys and girls are different.

Don’t reinvent the wheel- There are plenty of books and countless factual information on the web for parents to use to help the “talk” go more smoothly.

Ask questions- Unfortunately, if you aren’t answering your kids’ questions, someone is and it’s usually their peers. Find out what they already know. Dispel myths and add on to facts that they may already have correct.

More that just science- As kids get older, talking to them about more than just the dictionary answers behind babies can open up a dialogue for parents about more topics such as love, self-respect, repercussions and much more.

Don’t stop- After the first “talk,” keep talking. The conversations will evolve into different types of conversations as kids get older. Topics will change and so will your child’s level of understanding.

What steps have you taken to explain away the stork?

    I agree! This is my plans/techniques I want to use with my children. It depends on the age of the child. I think you give them bit by bit as they age.
