How to answer my five year old.

Post by Alg2376 » Mon Aug 15, 2016 10:47 am

Hello,

My five year old son recently asked me "who made us?". Once I finished taking him from Big Bang and expanding universe through to homo habilis and evolution through natural selection I realised I might have gone too deep. That we are made from dying stars and monkeys is all he got out of it. And then he said that another kid said "a man named God made us" and that seemed easier for him to process. Anyone dealt with this? Anyone have a positive experience explaining this to a five year old? Should I just wait? Can he still be a member of the Boy Scouts?(had no clue you had to have religion for that)

Thanks
