Yr 5 and Yr6 Students asked me about bf!

Post by Tilly » Tue Nov 04, 2014 7:42 pm

I was so pleased! Proud as punch that I had openly talked about how I breastfed my girls throughout the years I have taught them (I teach in a unit) and today my Yr 5 and Y 6 kids asked me, "How do breasts make milk?", "Where does it (the milk) come from?" and "But where does the milk come out of?".

I gave age appropriate answers and simple explanations….but they wanted more info!!

AND….This was both the girls AND the boys asking!!!! They were so curious and comfortable, it was a natural open discussion and the kids were oh so nonchalant…..lol.

Nice one Tilly - think about those kids in 15 or so years when they are becoming parents or their friends, cousins and siblings are - you have planted some seeds :-D
