This morning my daughter noticed her brother had a morning wood and she asked him, whats that? He just told her nothing stop. She then tried to hit him there to see what was in there. She tells him i know it's tissue in there lol. I could not hold in my laughter! So now i know she will really notice it all the time and keep asking. So i know I'm going to have to tell her something but i don't know what to say to a 5 year old!! Please help!!

First of all how old is her brother? Why would she have an opportunity to see him in that state? Tell her the truth. The bigger deal you make of it, the bigger deal she will make of it. Say, that is your brother's penis, he is a boy and boys have a penis. You do not have a penis because you are a girl. If his erection was covered by is pjs, you do not need to explain that he had an erection. If she presses the matter, it is because she needs more information. In that case, I would say; Sometimes a boys penis can be hard in the morning. If as he asks why, tell her that is just the way boy's bodies work. If you are calm and cool about it, she will probably not ask for more detail. I would not use the term "morning wood" to a five year.
I would not bring this up at all unless she actually asks.

lol A nurse would know that it is 100% normal... Bored little kids should not have access to the internet on school breaks. @@

Ali is a troll. Her posts today have her son up a tree, one daughter shaving all her hair off and the other 12 y/o daughter having sex in a public bathroom. She's made inappropriate comments to other's serious posts. She's either a troll, or she needs to have all her kids taken away from her and get psychiatric help..

Ali, your answer makes no sense. As a nurse, why do you think anyone in this situation need help?
