Sissy

What do you think when you hear this?

I think sister. I taught my 18 month old this to address his sister, her name is Kayla. I figured Kayla and sister was to hard for a 18 month old to say so I taught him sissy (he's been saying it for 2 months now)
I was told I shouldn't have taught him this since it has other meanings.

What do you think?

  • My aunt is called Sissy because it was short for sister. I know plenty of kids that call their sisters that. And brothers got called Bubby.

  • If he know that it means sister to him I don't see what the problem is.

  • I don't really think anything. I have a cousin who is nicknamed that. My dh's aunt is also named that.

  • I know many kids who call older siblings Sissy. Nothing wrong with it.

  • My first thought is "sister" - my DS has 3 sisters, and he'll say "sissers" when he wants more than 1 to pay attention to him, used to come out "sissies" but he's finally gotten the "r" in there too.

  • My DS called his sister that when he was younger because he couldn't say her name because of speech problems, he knows her name now and can use it but still calls her sissy every once in awhile. I see nothing wrong with it.
