My oldest is 9 next month. My belief is that we cannot stop kids from doing something but we can give them tools to make informed decisions. (Not that at 9 he should be thinking of that!) I was brought up in a very open household. If we wanted to know something we were told. I am not embarrassed to talk to my kids but I just don't know if I should wait till he's older. My 6 year old daughter is more curious as to how babies are made and asks me. She knows that babies come from a moms tummy but has no idea how they get there! Not sure if I should have a mini talk with them separately or together or wait till they ask again and just be frank. What do I tell them? Any advice?
