  • Vagina. Then, if someone did touch her vagina, everyone would instantly know what she is talking about.

  • We always said vagina and tush. It is better to have them know the correct names in case someone is ever messing with her. You need her to be able to be very clear about what happened.

  • We don't have a daughter but we use wiener(sp?) for our son.

  • We use butt & privates for the girls, butt & winkie for DS. I personally am not comfortable using the proper words, and neither is DH - just part of how we were brought up I think.

  • I would use hiknee for the butt and private part for the vagina. I am much like 4time-mom. Very conservitive. Really I think you should call it what your mom or dad called yours so you feel more comfy with letting your daughter say it. I know my step 5 year old son says penis and it drives me nuts. I just have the habit of calling it private, so now he calls it his "penis private". Kinda funny now, but back to you, just what makes you most confortable hearing your kido say thats what you should teach them:)
