Ok so we all know about THAT talk, the "how did I get here mummy?" talk. Now don't panic, my 17 month old isn't THAT inquisitive. One day, she will be. And as with all things I do, I have thought about it, researched it and now I'm opening it up for discussion with you, my lovely readers.
Sarah Jessica Parker recently discussed THAT talk with Ladies Home Journal, you can read all about it HERE. It was also reported on Celebrity Baby Blog a couple of days ago.
SJP said "I just feel there is time and a place".
So, I wonder, when is that time and where is that place?
Is it as soon as the child asks you (this usually follows the child hearing something about it in the playground) or do you prempt this and just give your child the talk before that happens to ensure your child is properly informed before they hear rubbish in the playground?
Or do you wait til it is discussed in the classroom?
Or do you leave it all together and let society educate the child. Lord knows you see enough on the TV these days? I'm pretty conservative myself and our daughter's name was on the waitlist of a private girls school from birth, so I do like a sheltered life.
As with all things to do with my Tinker, I just want to do what is right, so I wonder- is there a right when it comes to this topic?
