Talking to Your Kids about Sex

Talking to kids about sex, as a psychologist, I wanted to do things right for my three young sons so I took them to the Museum in Chicago where there was a very graphic exhibit on babies inside their mother’s stomach.  On returning to New Jersey, my youngest son went to the lady across the street to tell her how to get a baby.  Somehow he knew she wanted a baby.

This is the advice he gave her:  “Go to your doctor and tell him you want a baby.  Go back in nine months and he will give it to you.”

It worked and after the first one she told was her husband, the next one was my son.
