Do you teach your children the proper names for their's? I've been talking to DS (3) about the other name for his "peepee". He's now in the bath yelling "penis...PENIS...PEENIS...PEEENNNIISSS!" I think this may have backfired a little lol

We use penis and vagina. I had a friend in college that called her vagina a tutu. I was not allowing that to happen.

I have taught my daughter the correct terms. I did so because god forbid if someone touched her I don't want there to be any confusion about what happened when she is telling me or any other adult.

DS is almost 6 and knows the right names for his parts. He just doesn't usually use them. We have always used the term "doodle". It was so funny in the store one time. He got a free cookie from the bakery and it was a snickerdoodle. He goes "Snicker doodle, like this doodle" and pointed at his crotch. LOL.

I taught my son to say wee-wee...One day we were in public and I told him we needed to get to a bathroom because I had to use the restroom.  So he yells out, "just hold your wee-wee mama don't go on yourself." Lol. He was only 3 and half when he said it...It was embarassing but it sounded a lot cuter than if he had said "hold your penis mama"....

My DD's know the proper names, but they still call theirs a Tootie.
