Did they find it or did they here someone talking about it? if they found it say thank you I lost that your a big helper and give them a treat and get their mind off of it. If they heard about it say it is to help mommy. And be careful about dicussing certin things around kids they listen all to well. even if they are playing.

It all depends on how open you plan on being with your child. My sister and I have extremly different views on many topics. My children knew what sex and where babies came from about this age; simply because we got suprised by riding by a pasture with a bull and cows (enough explained there!). Each year the question came back to us and each year we explained a bit more. Now my neice and nephew had no clue until they were a few years older and again love the animal kingdoms for helping parents introduce the tough topics! Their cat got pregnant. And sterlization was brought up after the babies were born.

Explain enough they understand in their mind, let them ask you questions and give them honest if not vague answers. Then if the question pops up later you can expand on what you already have explained!

I'd simply explain that its a thing adults use to make sure babys aren't made if they don't want them. If they ask any further tell them they'll understand as they get older and that you'll explain it more to them then.

Tell them that when they are old enough to understand what it means you will explain it them, but until then not to talk about that. My son is 7 and has asked me what the word gay meant. Now I know the true meaning is happy but you know society will not think of happy if he says this word. So I told him that until he can understand what it means to BE gay then I would explain it to him. But until then, I told him that it was an inappropriate word and that he should not use it. Hope this helps. Best of luck!!
