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 have all girls and they have their "lady parts" their "booty" and when they get older they will have "boobies"

My daughter knows that she has a vagina but she says "I'm just gonna call it the front of my butt".

hahahaha  Boys (and men for that matter) are obsessed with their penises.

my oldest (5 this july) knows he has a penis, but calls it a pee pee, (he also last year thought he had a brain under his penis thanks to sponge bob for showing spongebobs brain in the Ghost episode. hahaha my youngest is 18 months and we are potty training and call it a pee pee because he can say it and it makes communication easier right now

My sons not old enough but he will know he has a penis.
If I have a daughter I will teach her vagina, it may not be "proper" but its more widely used.

Yes, I use proper names, however my husband refuses to and says wiener and hoo-ha. The kids use both.

I think teaching your child anything other than proper names makes the actual words seem embarassing or taboo. You wouldn't re-name an arm something else, so why stigmatize the proper names for genitals?

As they get older yes. We usually say piska(russian for private parts lol) I say girl parts. Because seriously vagina is the ugliest damn word on earth. Yes they kniw its actually called a vagina. We just usually use other words

An arm is an arm. An eye is an eye. I don't get why many parents don't teach children penis and vagina.
