How to Handle Embarrassing Questions from Kids (With One Easy Trick)

Kids say the darnest things. They also usually say them at the worst possible moment. Have you ever been in a crowded business only to have your child say “Mom, did that woman eat the baby to get it in her tummy”, while pointing at a pregnant woman.

We love our kids quest for knowledge. We don’t want them ever to stop questioning things. We just want to take those embarrassing questions that put you on the spot and make others feel uncomfortable and put them on hold until later when you can give your kids an explanation they can understand.
