How would you answer your 8 years old son who asked " Mum, what is a virgin? And are you a virgin?"
Thanks to the influence of the tv and socia media. Parents these days, have to be knowledgeble and smart in their responses to their inquisitive children.
8 year old boy i think is old enough to understand. im almost positive he knows what sex is. i have been criticized for my parenting in this manner, but i always tell my daughter like it is. she once asked her teacher what sodomy was. they all of course were shocked and werent sure how to handle it. i just told her plainly what it was and she said "oh". and went on with her life. i always tried not to under estimate how smart , mature and understanding she could be at a young age.
Just tell him "If Mommy were a virgin, honey, you wouldn't be here"
Answering kids straight-frowardly, with facts, no euphemisms and as simply as possible. So: 'A virgin is someone who has not yet had sex. No, I am not a virgin, because I have had sex with your daddy.' If there are followup questions, answer similarly. Do not add anything that they have not asked about.

It can be FUNNY, CUTE, or that EMBARRASSING comment in the grocery store line. Please give the age of the child for reference. I love it when my 2yr old says "tank you, daddy" when I give her milk or something else she asked for. After I make her laugh, it makes me smile when she says...
