Parents (USA) - - Let’s Get Real - Pho­to­graph by DANE TASHIMA

Kids are fas­ci­nated with the gross and amaz­ing world that re­sides be­neath their skin—use that to your ad­van­tage!

These facts from Howard Ben­nett, M.D., au­thor of the book The Fan­tas­tic Body and a pe­di­a­tri­cian and fa­ther in Wash­ing­ton, D.C., can help you ex­plain to your child how the hu­man body works.
