Our expert says:
RC, telling your son at a very young age might not damage him significantly, but he's not likely to really properly understand this sort of thing until he's around adult, is he ? There's no "best age", but somewhere in adolescence is usually better, especially when it's after the child has begun to notice problems and ask about the relationships concerned. You don't need to tell him the bad things --- if they are bad people and behave badly, he will see it for himself.
