He came up to me after his bath holding his scrotum, asking what the two balls are for. What should I say? Usually I have some kind of answer for those body questions. Not this time. I told him that he needs to keep them safe. They hurt really bad if the get smacked. I just didn't have any kind of answer as to what they are for a six year old. Help.

Personally, I would have just said something along the lines of "they're for when you get older and become a man." That would probably be enough info for him for now.

I don't want to get into "these are your future children" talk yet. LOL. What are the books?
