Proper names for "private parts"?

Posted by   + Show Post
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 say penis and vagina. I realize vagima isn't anatomically accurate but as they get older ill educate the. We say "privates" or "bottom" typically

I just taught my son from day one the right names and it was never a thing.

He didn't go around saying "foot!" "Nose!" or "Fingers!" either.

That was my thinking too. Worse case scenario I would want him to be able to use the correct term to tell someone what happened.


Quoting Ber-Lynn:

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.

lol for about a month my daughter went around telling everyone who in the room had a penis and who had a vagina... she told her grandpa "You probably have a penis too acuz you used to be a boy a long time ago" hahaha He said, "I'm still a boy, just a really old one" lol.

Proper names of course. A rose by any other name is still a rose.

Quoting Jennyanne322:

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

He did walk in on me in the bathroom recently and told me I'm not a boy because mine fell off. I have no idea where he got that from but all I could say was "oh yeah?" Lol
