  • Uh-Oh! It's the hardest thing to explain to kids...where babies come from!

    9.5
    Buffy and Jody want to know where babies come from! Both Bill and Mr. French think it's a little too soon to tell them the truth, but Cissy, who is taking a biology course, thinks it would be good to be straight with them and tell them the truth. Mr. French tells them about the stork, but when they go back to school and talk with a friend, the friend says that the stork is just a fable, it's not true. Mr. French talks to Ms. Faversham, a professional nanny, about the situation and she says that at 8 years old, they are probably too young to understand. She advises French to tell them a story about the cabbage patch. At first, the children accept that explanation. Cissy is appalled that the adults would tell them such a story. Cissy tries to be as honest as she can with Buffy and Jody, but being so young, they don't understand all the terms she uses. Buffy and Jody even go back to school and try to explain the things that Cissy said to their little friends, but just get them even more confused.

    In the end, Bill just explains that they, Buffy, Jody and Cissy too, were born because there parents loved each other very much, and they loved them too, he also tells them that maybe when they are a few years older, they will understand the biological aspects of how they were born.

    It was kind of sticky sweet, but a very nice way to explain the facts of life to kids. It definitely wouldn't work nowadays, kids now would look it up on the Internet and would probably get the same answers that French gave them, along with the truth that they wouldn't understand anyway...along with some pictures that would be X-rated!moreless
