white blood cell count is higher

My five year old boy today has got fever. When I asked him “how are you feeling” he answered “well the virus is in my body so my white blood cell count is higher, because it’s fighting against the virus to protect me”.

It may sound funny to start with, but the bigger question is how does he know about this? From some conversation, TV, school ? I am extremely surprised to see he has acquired this knowledge without me realizing it from where.

This subject is just fine, but I wonder what all other things he might learn from “who knows where”? How do I make sure I understand all his social knowledge accumulation process?

I don’t want to be a mommy who restricts him in doing every little thing. But I want to know the best way to handle and filter the source of information if needed.

Any mommy out there have any suggestions for me?
