This is such a no-brainer. You don't have to explain the play on words to your son any more than you'd have to explain what "virgin" means if he should ask about Extra Virgin Olive Oil. All you have to say is "It's a ladies' beauty salon, and they just named it the Pretty Kitty." This is a non-crisis.

Oh, and for the record, I knew about sex long before my parents talked to me about it. I actually read a parenting book that talked about how to give "the talk". Then I asked about it, asked the questions the book says kids ask, and that was then end of that. The rest of my education I got from other places.

So don't count on the talk playing out like you see it in your head.

It could be worse. We really like an Italian restaurant. Their new neighbors? An "Adult Novelty Store" and what the mannequins in the window front are advertising could possibly be described as underwear. Nothing obscene, but nothing that could be passed off as something else. They're free to exist, free to advertise, and of course people are free to go there. I just wish the talk could have been held off.

If my child inquired as to the meaning of the double entendre like that, I would just laugh and reply "I'll tell you when you're older". We don't owe are children explanations for everything and I wish parents would get that.

When I was young and would ask a delicate question, my mother's favorite response was "None Of Your Business" Lol....

You should get out of town more Devon. I just checked the computer and the first listing had 12 businesses by that name under one corporate umbrella. So I'd imagine that almost every city of any consequence has one or more. Oh, by the way, personal grooming is nothing to be ashamed of.

Like this one said, tell them its a beauty shop but I would add that the owners name must be kitty.

Chalk up another story about nothing. A normal kid might walk up to the window and not seeing any dogs, cats, or parrakeets will walk away minding his or her own business. At worst a kid might try to walk in the door and will be immediately escorted back outside. Nor harm, no foul.

Oh, get a life! Just tell the kid it's a ladies beauty salon. The biggest of tempests in the smallest of teapots.
