There comes a time, about 3 or 4-years-old, when your children seem to be so curious about everything. You’ll grow tired of hearing “why?” and “how come?” and you’ll be used to answering question after question while multi-tasking.
Conversations like these are important for you and your children. It solidifies the bond with you and your child, opens the lines of communication, and shows your kids that it’s okay to discuss anything with you. This will come in handy when they start asking questions that are a little more… sensitive.
We’ve all heard of the “birds and bees” talk. It’s usually expected to be a very embarrassing and awkward talk around the time puberty hits that gives the cliff’s notes version of what to expect. I don’t believe this is the best way to go when it comes to talking to our kids about something as important as body changes and sex, but it doesn’t have to be awkward and complicated either.
