comment When should you start talking with your children about sex?
True, true. If they are asking, they are ready to know. If you avoid answering, they WILL seek out an answer from someone else. That other person may misinform your child. Chances are they are asking because they already heard something, and want clarification or more information.

I find that generalizing things helps their understanding. Children usually don't differentiate between doctor and nurse. Options on location may also confuse them. Keep it simple. "The doctor helps," is probably enough. No need to worry them about when and were the baby arrives, because they actually will start worrying about what happens when you can't be at the intended location. Generalization is not being dishonest, just a means of helping them understand things on their level. Talk to them like they talk with their friends, to help gauge things.

HedgeMage - Oh, no! That's not a good situation, and a very good point. We did tell her, "there is a hole that the baby comes out of."
