What have you taught your kids to call their private area?

My girls know it's vagina, but we like saying "jayjay". And my little one for some odd reason knows where and what her butt is but insists on calling it her "buddy".

  • At 3 (known since 2) she calls it her Vulva (vagina is internal organ) and she knows what her Clitoris is. Now the functions of each will be left out until she is older and needs to know. Her behind is her tush or butt.

    She also knows what a penis is and testicles.

    I don't believe in nicknames unless she calls them that. They are a body part just like an elbow or ear and we don't nickname them.

  • Penis and Vagina

    I am not going to have that kid who in health class wants to fight with the teacher because they are using the proper terms and their parents have never bothered to teach them.

    Why are we all so afraid of calling our private parts by their correct names? We don't make up names for our arms, legs, or nose, so why rename the Penis and Vagina?

  • My sister and I both use regular names, our parents are embaressed and say pee pee or bottom. Bottom, butt, ba donk a donk... whatever we all have one but my sister and I both feel it is important to let our kids know girls and boys have different parts and be comfortable with the names.

  • My son is two...we call it a penis and butt. My DH taught him to "flex" his now he calls my boobs pecks and I think that is adorable. As far as vagina goes...he has never really needed a word for it yet....
