Private parts?

Private parts?
What do you call/teach your children to call their private parts? When you were younger did your parents have you call them something else? My mom called a male’s parts a “ peepee” and female’s parts “chest and WhoWho”. Do you use names or have your children use names you picked out?

  • my mother taught us the anatomical names for our bodies. She taught my brother pretty young. A few days later she over heard him in the sand box with his friends saying "Jason and me both have a penis, but Kimmy doesn't have one because hers is in China." HAHAHAHAH!!!

  • Penis and vagina. I will never forget when my oldest, who was 3 at the time, told my mother he had a penis and his baby sister had a vagina. I thought the poor woman was gonna vapor lock. Those were curse words when I was growing up.
