Hi there, I have two young sons (5&3) and they are at the stage of following me everywhere....including the toilet. My DS5 asked today "what's that?" when I was getting a pad I just said "it's a pad" and he asked "what for?". I just said "it's just for mummy".
He was happy with that answer but I was pretty disappointed in my response. I always want to be open with them but wasn't sure what the appropriate thing to say was for this age.
