My daughter asked where she came from when she was 4.
I told her she came from inside of mommy.
She then asked how she got in there, I told her I put her in there and explained how.
I made one rule for myself when I became a father.
I will answer each and every question to the best of my ability in complete honesty and frame it in a manner the child can understand.
Knowledge is power, I don`t see why we`d want to weaken our children by keeping it from them.
This rule has served me exceptionally well.
