Quoting Charné:

I do make sure I know what she's asking & she speaks very well. She asks things like why do I have body hair & why do I shave it if God made me so. When I asked how does she know I shave it she said coz it looks like my hubby's chin lol She even asks about menstruation, but she made up her own explanation for it coz I took too long I have decided not to bathe in front of her coz I want to avoid these questions:-)


i'll be no help then becuase i'm not into avoiding them LOL... honestly you may want to make sure u give her the correct answers about menstration girls start younger and younger and you want her to know before she learns some incorrect info at school... but then again my 5 year old knows how babies come out and asked and was allowed to be in the room when his sister was born *had the doctor drape the area and i zone out with giving birth and dont scream plus he had the option at any point to say he wanted out

when our son ask questions *he's also 5* we give him honest answers at an age approiate level.... i want him to know he can trust us and come to us for anything... and i think avoiding or just not answering his questions does the opposite..

also make sure she's asking what you think she is ... question her in a round about way.. what kinds of stuff is she askinG?
