  • Vulva...she said it for the first time at about 18 months. I don't believe in naming them cutsey names. I mean you wouldn't call your elbow something else would you?

    She is 3 and also knows what a clitoris is along with a penis. I didn't explain what their function is but I would rather her know the appropriate terms if anything should ever hurt. It's easier than hearing "my sissy hurts" and then having to go on a scavenger hunt to find what actually hurts.

  • What do mean what do we call them? I thought everyone used correct terms. I have a boy. He calls is penis a penis. There is no nickname b/c I refuse to embarrassed by body parts. They are body parts! Normal body parts!

  • I have boys, they call it, peeper and privates and sometimes they call it their boy parts. And they know it is called a penis too, but don't call it that.

  • Either the technical names or just privates if I am referring to the region. Like, "make sure to wash behind your ears and your privates".
