If you have a daughter who is about 5 to 7 years old, now is the time to begin special talks with her about her body. My description for the spirit behind these talks is “celebration.” Helping her understand how she is special as a girl is something to be celebrated.
Little girls are curious about where babies are growing inside the mommy’s tummy. They are also a little confused because they thought food was in mommy’s tummy. Using some anatomy terms, we can easily erase the confusion.
What do you say when your 6-year-old daughter asks where babies come from? You knew this question was coming and now it is here.
If you have a 5-7-year-old daughter, she is likely very interested in babies. Here is some interesting information that she will enjoy learning and will also help her understand a little more about her girl anatomy.
A great discussion to have with your 5-7-year-old daughter is about her ovaries. I love this picture from my book, I’m a Girl, Special Me. It helps a young girl to understand that the ovaries need special protection inside her body just like these tiny bird eggs need special care inside a bird’s nest.
