          Explaining the Birds and the Bees

          January 05, 2003

          “Where do babies come from?” asks one young boy. Dr. Phil makes it clear that there is no stork and no baby fairy. “Kids have a hard time learning about how things work in life,” he says, so it’s important to “give them anatomically correct answers.” Answer kids on their level in terms they can understand with accurate information. Use age-appropriate pictures to explain how things work.

          “Why do girls get boobs and boys don’t?” asks a 4-year-old. After joking that she’s grounded until she’s 12, Dr. Phil explains: “As you grow up, boys get taller and bigger, and girls change in different ways too. Our bodies change, and that’s part of the difference between girls and boys.”
