Children are curious and sooner or later they will ask "where do babies come from?" Address this question depending on your child’s age. Some tips on how you can answer the inevitable question.

  • Do not laugh when they ask you.
  • Do not avoid the topic if your child asks about it as they will get more curious and proceed to get wrong information from friends and peers.
  • Keep the facts simple without going into too much detail; explain in a language he can understand. With an older child, explain the concept of love and privacy.
  • Make sure they understand what you are saying and repeat yourself if required.  The worst thing that can happen from this dialogue is that they are even more confused than before.
