  1. "Mom, where do babies come from?"

    It is a tough question to answer. How do you answer it?

    That question would be pretty hard to answer but I would choose to dodge the child's question or change the topic so that the kid would not know the truth. It would give them a shock if I reveal the true meaning, so better not destroy the kid's mind. She/He is still too young to know.

    I have actually not really given thought about this question, but when confronted with such a scenario, telling the truth is definitely out of the question since it's a crime to "poison" such a cute and innocent being's mind.
    What makes things a bit difficult is that you have to make sure you convince this youngster, so that she or he does not look for answers elsewhere-like online.

    So, the lie has to be believable, even to others this child might discuss the topic with. With all that said, I would tell this 3-year old that children come from Heaven and are born out of eating a lot of food. That's why the woman's belly is always swollen when pregnant. I hope it works!

    Wow! That's a tough question.

    I think the best thing would be to tell the truth. Tell the kid that babies come from GOD. That when a mom is ready, she asks GOD for a baby, and GOD answers her prayer. About how the baby comes from GOD to mom, well ... tell the kid that it's a complicated process that only biology teachers know how to explain.

    The question is more simpler to answer because the child is still small
    Just tell the child to look up to the sky and tell him "Babies comes from God "
     
  6. I will answer that kid like this. :rolling:

    "Kid, you are too young for that, the magic spell is only effective when you are 18 and above. You need to wait until you get 18 years, I will teach you the magic spell, for you to be an honorable wizard."

    OMG! That's magical :love:

    This is my answer when my nephew ask me that question and I quote, "Babies were born when two people fall in love, like your mommy and daddy. You are created by that love and we are thankful of it." . Now that he grows up and did learn how babies were really born, I can't really blame him believing a child is born through love and not with "the intercourse". I really don't like saying it up to now. I'm sorry.

    Three year old children doesnt have any idea or will have a hard time to understand the natural process that occurs in creating a life. That kind of questions needs only simple answers. When my 7 year old daughter ask me that kind of question when she around 4 years old. I simply told her that God gave her to me and her mommy which she truly are. I also told her that me and her mommy love each other so much that God decided to give her to us. I told her that, in order for her to value love, family and most specially God.

    This is really a tough question if your kid asks this so in my opinion i just have to dodge this kind of topic. I have a 5 years old daughter who ask me also this kind of question,at first i was shock because i was caught ofv guard by her question and when i recover i just amile to her and tell that "someday when ypu get bigger and old enough i will tell you how babies are made". Maybe i just satisfied her that i explained it to her properly she doesn't ask that again or seem moved on from that topic.

    This is sensitive question for a innocent mind. I would just answer the babies came from the womb of a mother and the fruit of the love of your parents.

    A CHILD IS A GIFT FROM GOD TO PEOPLE YOU CALL PARENTS WHEN YOUR PARENTS PRAYED TO GOD TO GIVE THEM A BABY, HE GAVE THEM YOU SO YOU ARE A GIFT FROM GOD THAT'S WHY YOUR PARENTS LOVE YOU SO MUCH BECAUSE YOU ARE THEIR GIFT FROM GOD
     
  12. Very interesting indeed. You must know that the children we have today are not as naive as the children of 60 years. These children have seen women delivering in hospitals on TV. They have seen pregnant women who later gave birth and have babies.

    Children know that children come from stomachs. One has to be careful how to answer. Let your child not term you a lier.

    No i wont tell it. First its to early for the innocent child to know the truth. Maybe i will tell the kid when he reach his legal age at 18 plus a magical bonus of how he would do it.
