With God and sex, I'm finding my child seems satisfied with very simple but truthful answers. I will admit when he asks me about God, I'm tempted to ask him if he'd prefer to discuss sex The facts of life are a bit more cut and dry.

He has also been at two wakes, including my Mother's. It has not damaged him and we've had short discussions about it. I realize, though, that some kids are more sensitive to this topic. We also have an old dog and I've tried to prepare him a bit for the inevitable.

I do not think there is one set age to decide how much info a child deserves.

Both DS and DD (5 and 3) have asked somewhat specific questions about what a baby does inside the belly (what does it eat? How can it see? where does it poop?...) but nothing about how the baby gets in there. But they have also seen me with my period, and they both know there is no baby because my egg is coming out. I also showed them this video, which I love. It is really funny if you know Danish, but you can obviously still get it without the words:
