You're the bastard who took the cookie from the cookie jar!!
That kid got the sex talk too young. Honesty is not always the best policy. Storks until age seven is my advice...
I am a pre-k teacher at a day care, and one day a child was drawing a picture of me. My co-teacher told the child not to forget the baby in my tummy, and the child, with the most serious expression, said, "Why? Did she eat it?" and went right back to coloring. Kids come up with crazy shit. It's best to let their little imaginations run (unless the idea gives them serious distress).
My mom told me that if I took a bath with a boy, and sat on opposite sides of the tub--I will still get pregnant! For years I refused to go to the local swimming pool. My dad's only one time sex talk was during a baseball commercial. He turned to me and said, "If you plan to have sex, it will be wise to be on the pill". Then continue to watch the game in silence.
#28 It is not always the best idea to keep things from your kids. If they start asking you questions and they don't get the answer they will go to another source and that's when you run into trouble. Kids are smart and can handle more than we think. Lying to them can ruin your relationship at any age.
when I was 4 I asked and my parents said it happened when you slept in the same bed with a boy. for a while after that I was scared I would get pregnant when I was in my brothers bed with my dad reading us a bedtime story! theres no harm in telling a child that the baby is made inside the tummy but they dont need to know how. they find out on their own anyway. I never had a talk but knew by the 1st grade from the kids at school that it happened from a boy and a girl putting their rude parts together. it made a lot of sense to me actually. kids dont need to know the gory details
#68- My mom told me a similar thing. The difference was that if I slept in the same bed as a guy, I could get pregnant, even without being naked! Sadly, my health teacher in high school burst out laughing with the entire class before telling me that my mom lied. My mom only smirked when I told her.
