Long time ago when I was a child, parents were too embarrassed to tell their children where they came from when they were asked this question. So some of them would just tell their children they were picked from the rubbish bin Today it is very ridiculous but this is what happened at that time. Since I had an operation when I labored my son because of some situations. So I could tell my child how he came from. Today I think more parents are honest to tell their children where they come from and we don't make that kind of mistake again.

You memorize me the childhood As a child we have many questions and the unique answers are given by our parents O I remember that one time I asked my parents that in your wedding where was me. I did not able to find myself in video at all. Then they laugh and replied that I became very tired and slept earlier... Ultimate questions and nice responses....

In the past when my son saw the wedding photos, he could see only dad and mom. I asked him where he was now, he told me he was the one who took wedding photos

Here you were born under a goosberry bush. We did not have one so for many childhood years I reckoned a stork flew over and left me under the Rhodedendeum. It was years before I realused I had never seen a stork. Then my sister was nearly born into the lavatory because Mum did not realise she was actually giving birth.

It is OK to explain you were born under a goosberry bush. But here the answer is somewhat upset because the children were pick from the rubbish bin

Rubbish bin? How sad. I think being honest with our children from the very beginning is very important. Of course you may have to use age appropriate words and sometimes find a book to help you explain it all but, it does need to be done in a responsible manner. I think we as parents learn as we go. It's nice when we have parents or siblings that can help with this too.

See how crazy it is in the past. Parents kept it as a big secret. But I don't know why they had to pick the rubbish bin. Perhaps the children would have no more questions to hear that?

@youless ....Well, I can see the positive in it as well as the negative. I mean a rubbish bin. Ugh! But, to have you in one and they chose you is a nice thought.

We have never been told we were picked from the rubbish bin, but it was very common to say we were born under a big cabbage.

I think the children might have no more further questions to hear that they were picked from the rubbish bin since it was already a very sad case.

@youless Life is hard enough not to start with the idea we were picked from the rubbish, this is really sad.

They used to tell us that children are found under cabbage leaves. Can you imagine?
