Our expert says:
There's no prescribed or predictable right time to do this. As Maria asks, why is this something you're thinking of doing NOW ? Has he started asking ? Is someone else about to reveal this ?
From your later comment, yes, its hardly practical to tell some of the children and not all of them - they will inevitably talk among themselves.
Then I much like Maria's second paragraph as a way of handling this. Deal with the concept first, and consistently emphasize that he is loved and will not be given away or sent away.
