My ten years boy asked me what is the meaning of word Sexy.. He is still asking me.. What should I give him the answer??? If I say sexy means beautiful there is a chance that he will call someone sexy..

Priya this is his sheer curiosity to explore more about human body. it's advisable to answer his questions in an age appropriate manner. if u would feel angry or frustrated he might not open his Pandora'sbox in front of u, but his mind would not stop thinking about it. he would seek answers from other unreliable resources which could be damaging for him. u could tell him , when he was a baby Mumma used to feed him milk from here and all lil babies have milk from breasts till they are 2 years of age. use exact term to talk about it .be prepared for more related questions. the more u would shy away or leave his questions unanswered more will be his curiosity to seek answers. hope this helps!

hi gud morning! Thanks for sharing gud tips on handling de sex related questions from kids. I too HV some problems relating kids queries. My kid who is juz 5yr old is asking me, wht u Have in ur chest, why it is big,Y he don't have tht. Hope i gave him proper explanation saying that grown up girls will Have their body structure like this. I said as HW u wld get beard & moustache once u grow like dady.... like tht girls also HV some changes in their body structure. But he didn't stop his excitement in digging questions with tht. this makes me embarrassed & anger.

This article is really very useful but can you guide us for the age group between 4-7 years bcoz even they have doubts and questions and its very difficult to answer dem coz v have to keep in mind their age and thinking capabilities.

A wonderful article written keeping in mind every little aspects of details. As rightly pointed out, kids lookout for sources to get the information and internet being the easiest way, can be dangerous and misleading. It is only the parent/s, especially mothers, who can educate the child in the right manner. Sex, being a sensitive issue has to be explained in the age appropriate way what otherwise could be perceived wrongly.
