  • ummm............I don't understand the issue? Are you saying that you can tell girls that they can't use your kitchen? And why would they touch you? I'm lost!

  • I think the OP is trying to teach her 5 year old grandson about inappropriate touching of others! The "oven" is a metaphor for a girls "hoo ha!!" LOL

    I think 5 years old is too young to be worried about promiscuity! Where are his parents? They should be the ones discussing this issue, when he is a teenager! :o)

  • An easy way is what is covered by a bathing is not to be touched by others. this is a really easy way for little boys to understand. I think children should be taught that so if by chance someone does try they will tell you.

  • I think teaching the girls to call it their "kitchen" is a bad decision. No adult outside the family is going to understand that. we simply use "privates". Tell them that their privates are their privates. No on should touch you their except a dr or yourself.

  • This is their prvate area and no one is to touch it adult or other children!
