...my exdh said the same thig to me when my kids were small. Said I was like a pediphile...

we divorced when he secretly lost our house and he beat the crap out of me and 2 of 4 kids.

then he got custody removed because the kids, ages 9-13, reported that he let them view porn during visits....while he smoked pot in a closet with his best friend....

He still loses it when they use correct terms-and they are all older teens now...

he uses words like "snarse", "hoo hoo", and "wee wee" with boys over 14...and said in court that I was sick in the head for using the right terms...they basically ignorred him and took his custody away...

he is an ass.

Its much better to use proper names for genitals, god forbid just in case theyre ever in a situation where they are touched, it would ve more clear to the person they tell about it.

SHe's ridiculous.  Of course you use proper terms. 

You'll be a sight more embarrassed if she goes to school and several years down the road she mentions a "wee-wee".

We teach our kids proper terms. My two year old goes around the house saying " it's a penis."

Haha no. I don't use baby words. I use real words. They will need to learn the real words eventually. I don't want my child calling their penis a 'wee wee' forever because yeah, that would be embarrassing.

Ivthink it's nastier to call them some made up name. lol

Really doesn't matter to me what people choose to tell their kids. Don't think it's ever a bad thing to use the proper terms though.
