As if YOUR Children Have Never Embarrased You Before!
I have always believed that parents should teach children about sex according to their age and maturity level instead of letting them learn it on the streets or from the media. In order to teach them that their bodies are not bad and dirty and that there are appropriate terms for each part instead of obscene ones, I taught them the scientific names.
I really didn’t think any of it sank into my children’s minds but a few weeks after this science lesson, we were at the grocery store when I noticed my children being drawn to a see-through container of live lobsters. They were pointing at their tentacles when suddenly my son yells, “MOMMY, LOOK AT HIS TESTICLES!!!!!”
It was as if every single person froze in time as they stood staring at me with bulging eyes and mouths opened wide. “As if YOUR child has never embarrassed you before,” I thought to myself. I corrected my children on the word “tentacles not testicles” and we quickly left the store!

So funny! My 4 y/o son loves the lobster tank at the store but I can't seem to get him to stop calling them "Monsters" instead of lobsters.
