It is not unusual for young children to ask questions about pregnancy and childbirth, and the sight of a pregnant woman or a baby is often enough to spark that curiousity. For adults, the question, "where do babies come from?" may trigger some uncertainty and apprehension, as the subject of pregnancy encompasses sensitive subject-matter, much of which may seem too adult for child consumption. Fortunately, it is possible to address questions about the birds and bees in an age-appropriate way that will satisfy a child's inquiries. Follow these guidelines for how to answer where do babies come from. *_^
Find Out What, Exactly, The Child Wants To Know
Questions about pregnancy don’t always necessitate a detailed
description of the male and female reproductive systems and/or the
conception and birthing processes, especially when the child is very
young. In order to provide answers that are in-line with what the child
really wants to know, evaluate the intent behind the question before you
proceed to answer.
Provide Answers About Pregnancy That Are Age-Appropriate.
Respond to a question with another question. For example, you
may reply to the question of, “where do babies come from?” by asking,
“where do you think babies come from?”
Analyze the child’s input in order to identify what type of
information the child is really seeking. For example, if the child
provides an answer such as, “I think the baby came from Heaven,” then
the child may simply be looking for a validation or reassurance of those
beliefs. On the other hand, an answer like, “my friend says that a man
and a woman make a baby,” constitutes a more detailed discussion.
Verify that you understand the type of answers about pregnancy the
child is seeking. For example, say something like, “are you asking how a
man and a woman make a baby?” before proceeding into an explanation.
Familiarize Yourself With Child Development In Regards to Sexuality.
That way, you won’t be startled by how much (or how little) your child
is comfortable with knowing when it comes to the birds and bees. For
example, it may be helpful to know that, by the time children are 3 or
4, they are familiar with their own genitals and aware that there are
differences between their genitals and those of the other gender.
Although all children mature at different paces, you may use these
general guidelines as starting points for addressing pregnancy and
childbirth questions, then provide more information as is warranted by
1. Toddlers generally want simplistic answers, as opposed to
detailed explanations. For example, when a 3-year old asks how babies
come out, you can start by saying that a doctor gets them out. That in
itself may be all the information the child wants or needs at the time.
2. School-age children may probe you for more details. Always begin
the most simplified explanation before moving forward into more complex
descriptions. For example, you may want to say that a man and a woman
make a baby by joining together a certain way, then wait for further
inquiry, before explaining the mechanics of fertilization.
Gauge The Child's Responses for Signs of Understanding and Comfort
The best way to ascertain if your explanation is appropriate to the
child’s maturity and existing knowledge is to watch how the child
reacts. If a child is giggling, making faces or turning away, then you
may be providing too much information, but if the child is nodding in
understanding and eyeing you in a way to prompt further explanation,
then you may want to proceed with more detailed answers about pregnancy.
1. Use scientific names for genitalia and reproductive organs so as
to avoid putting an unnecessary taboo on body parts and functions.
2. Conduct conversations about the birds and bees in a plain,
matter-of-fact way so that children feel comfortable asking questions
and seeking knowledge.
3. Anatomically - correct baby dolls are a good way to introduce young
children to basic concepts of anatomy, and to promote an attitude of
comfort and openness in asking questions about biological functions.
1. Avoid providing misinformation, such as, “babies are delivered
by storks,” as this can create an atmosphere of mistrust, which is
detrimental to effective and productive communication.
2. Remember that reproduction is a natural part of life, and that if
you exhibit a squeamish demeanor when children come to you for guidance,
they may seek that guidance from less creditable sources.
