Birds & Bees Talks Advice!
My 7-year-old just asked me why his penis was big. I told him it was called an erection that it was normal and that it happens when blood flows to the penis. He then asked me why it happens. and I froze. What should I have said?
You handled this really well – that’s exactly what’s happening! As for why? It’s practicing for when he’s older and ready to have sex and it totally normal for this to happen.
And you should watch the “That’s How the Boner Grows” video with him. It’s great (and funny).
