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

I taught my daughter, vagina, anus, and vulva. She knows the difference between all of them and she knows penis. She finally saw what a penis looked like, because she saw my SIL change my nephew, and it was hilarious, because she had this look on her face, "That is a penis?" Lol

Lol hmmm well, maybe one of his older brothers? Unless your DH is a drug addict and you live in a trailer on their parents property? O.o lol

Quoting ferne3:

DH's family does this, perhaps you dated one of them?  Or him?  I dunno, makes it a little less offesnive to me, because in my house it happens all the time....

Quoting LoveNaCupcake:

Hahaha I dated a guy who wasnt allowed to say fart, they called it fluffing. like WTF? O.o

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.

We use real names or "private parts." I understand having nicknames, but for Pete's sake please make them obvious nicknames. Don't let your children describe their genitalia with food names. There's something wrong with that.

Yes they know it's penis and vagina or vag.

We used to call my daughter's vagina her chicken until she came home from school and asked me what the change and what a tw*t was. That began her first lesson in the female reproductive system.

They need to know, because if they are (God forbid!!) molested, they must name the private parts that were inappropriately touched.

When she gets older I'll teach her vagina, but for potty training stage i really don't know what i would like her to say.

 Since I had three boys my Husband and I referred to their parts as "fishbait".  LOL! And no, the boys didn't confuse that with actual fishbait when fishing. LOL!

Have a great day everyone!

Once while eating dinner at a friends her 2 to walked up to the table crying and said "mommy the big boys won't play with me. Also, my penis is sticking up and it won't go down." we somehow managed to hold it together without cracking up right in front of the poor little guy. After we got the kids all playing together we had a good laugh.
