Kids ask the darnedest things

When your kid asks you, "What's puke?," "Why do feet stink?" or "What happens to gum when I swallow it?" — or you wonder about these things yourself — check out Kids' Talk for answers. Experts at the Mattel Children's Hospital Web site answer these "icky" questions and more, from "Can loud music hurt my ears?" to "What's the right weight for me?" The site also features kids talking about real-life concerns like feeling scared and dealing with challenges like stress, being too busy and ... parents.
