  • Vulva, clitoris and penis. She is 3.

    I don't give a nickname to an elbow so why would I do so with this?

  • We say peeshee(spelling?) for dds parts. Its just a cute way to say it. Just as you say toot or fart lol You dont say flatulate? Or I have to go do some feces! lol Not bashing those that use the actual names. Just saying that other names arent bad. Just a cute way to say it I guess

  • My dd calls hers a tu-tu, I have know idea where she got it from. I have always been the person that says call it what it is, but somewhere she picked it up and that is all she will call it now.

  • We call it penis, scrotum, testicles, and butt. My DS is almost 3. We've always called it that. Doesn't make sense to call it anything else really.
    For 8 years I worked as a therapist for children and adolescents with sexual behavior problems (both as perpetrators and as victims)...children from 6-18. One of the hardest things was getting the children used to the fact that their parts aren't dirty and using the correct names is not dirty,e specially when they had to testify using the proper words. They all felt like saying words like penis was embarrassing and made them feel ashamed.
    As an aside, I had lots of kids who were taught words like "bunny" and "peach" and then the words became really negative after they were sexually abused because the abusers used those words against them.
    Just my opinion and real-life experience.
