|Because, obviously, this child was born after boy #1--he might start wondering if the recommendations changed again, or why Aunt Beth and Uncle Bill haven't heard...|
I totally agree. Don't lie, I would say, not that they "used to think it was better" but that some people "do think it is better" for little boys to be circumcised. And we think little boys are perfect the way ... they were born/God made them. My older son is aware that people have different belief systems.
My then four year old son recently saw his newborn (and newly circed) cousins' penis during a diaper change.
He asked me, after they left our house, what was wrong with his (the cousin) penis. I told him that some people pay a doctor to cut off part of their babys penis because they want it to look a certain way.
He asked if it hurt a baby to do that. I answered yes very badly. He asked if we did that to him and I answered that Daddy and I thought it was very wrong to do that to a baby, and no we did not do that to him or his brother. He said phew, that's good. End of conversation.
