What does your young child call his/her, female/male organs ?

& what did your parents teach you to call it ?


my DD (she's 3, 4 in october) calls her girl part, a coochie because thats what i've always called it... LOL & when she asked what boys have, i called it a "wee wee" because shes very vocal at home & in public & i'de rather her shout out "wee wee" than PENIS ! LOL.

my mom has always called a girls part a "suzy woozy" LOL so when i was young thats what i called it & my mom called a boys part a "peter" when i was young, but i decided not to teach my daughter eather one of those just in case she meets a peter or suzy whens she in school ! LOL

  • he calls it a 'penis'..which is, ironically, what the medical term is.

    my parents called them 'vagina' and, you guessed it, 'penis'.

  • I don't recall ever even talking about it when I was a kid, private parts aren't part of everyday discussion. My kids just refered to their "bottom" and didn't feel the need to name things.

  • My Son calls His penis exactly that. It's what it is, why shouldn't He call it that? Shit, He even knows what a vagina is called - He asked what mine is called and I told Him. Nothing wrong with that. Unfortunately for me, I thought those were dirty words when I was growing up, cause my idiot bio folks told me it was my "weewee" and a penis was a "peepee" - ugh. I was afraid to use the correct terms for years because of that.

  • my daughter knows the correct terms, but would rather use other names b/c every one in my family... like my grandmother & her fathers grandmother call it a name, if she need helps going potty or something, they'll say "do you need help wiping your suzy?" she thinks its funny. & it wasn't a serious question... i was just curious what crazy names your children come up with.
