My wife spoke to me the other night about my 8 year old son. She bought some items at Frederick’s after Christmas and got a free catalog. My 8 yr old son found (it burns me out that my wife left it about, but that’s a different thread) and my wife found it under his pillow. She took it and put it upstairs in our room where my son usually doesn’t go. Well somehow he must of stumbled upon it because she found it inside his pillow. Now she wants me to talk to him.
What am I going to say?
I haven’t looked through the catalog because I don’t want to be tempted. Now I have to explain all of that to my son.
I thought of 2 things that may need to be covered - 1 that this is underwear and why is it so different. Possible ideas was that it’s fancy underwear that women wear when they dress up?; 2 - why we don’t make a rule of looking at people in their underwear, that the catalog is for woman to see what the underwear looks like, much like instead of seeing a picture of pants at KMart you see a person in those pants. Within #2 I’m thinking about going into that even though those women may look attractive, we don’t look at people in their underwear because we’re missing out on the person. But not sure how to explain that to an 8 year old.
