Hello. I'm Dr. Deborah Wheeler. I'm the Vice President of Academic Affairs at Argosy University, Salt Lake City. I'm also a Clinical Psychologist, and the topic today is how to tell your child where babies come from. Many parents are surprised by this question when it comes up, most times from very young children. First tip, keep it simple. If a small child is asking this question, they probably just want some basic answers. You don't need to go into any anatomy or any details about the real deal. You can simply give them some very generic terms and that will suffice them. Secondly, you can go to the library. Get a book. Get some resources. As children get older they are going to want more resources. Take them to a private location. Provide them with enough resources, that they can get the information they need. Make sure they have the resources to answer the questions that they have. Make sure its age appropriate. And don't be afraid when the question comes up.
