Explaining Private Parts
Your child has now identified their private parts. How do you explain it to them?
It is always best to use the correct medical terminology for your private parts, to be as brief as possible, and to let your child lead the questioning. As more often than not, they will accept the first answer and move on. If you lead your child down a long explanation, it provokes them to ask more questions that they may not be ready for. Typically, toddlers begin to notice differences in their body between two and two and a half years of age. Seeing the difference between their own private part and that of mommy/daddy. If you are ever uncomfortable or not sure how to go about presenting information about your child's gender, it may be helpful to use a book.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love books by Robie Harris including "Who We Are! All about Being the Same and Being Different" and the book "Who Has What? All about Girls' Bodies and Boys' Bodies." publisher: @candlewickpress
For explaining where babies come from: "What's in There? All about Before You Were Born" These books go into detail so feel free to pick and choose what you want to present. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
