I call them what they are...making him to sexual aware?

Okay so a back story I was molested as a young child...so I have always taught my son actual names for his body parts (Penis) or a womans (vagina) he knows they are different and for those that judge you can not tell me your child has never walked in on you in the bathroom. ANYWAYS...I have been told because of this I am making my son now 7 too sexual aware....REALLY???

What are thoughts...BASH AWAY!

I don't see a problem with what you are doing.

My boys know that their penis is a penis, they don't however know what the correct female term is all they know is that mommy doesnt have one!

There is nothing wrong with using the real names of the human anotomy.. would you call a tounge a "slimy thing?" no, you call it a tounge, so why is penis and vagina any different?

I have always done the same thing. I have never used cutsy names for body parts.

I taught proper names.
DS chooses to call them his front and back private areas. I'm fine with that.
It don't like the cute names or slang names. God forbid something did happen, it could get thrown out of court because of those names.
How does knowing the proper name make anyone sexually aware. They're the one with issues.

If an arm is an arm, and a leg is a leg, then why isn't a penis a penis?  Really think about it, we don't give cutesie names to our arms and legs, so why give cutesie names to a penis or vagina?

I even had to explain the extreme basics about periods to dd when she was 4 (that's what happens when a 4 y/o follows you into the bathrm during af and asks why your pee is red!).

 What did you tell her? My dd saw blood on the toilet tissue, asked about that, and said, "Oh, it must be your lipstick." I am likely going to have to tell her something, soon.

I agree. Proper names for body parts does not make him more sexually aware. It just tells him the proper names for the body parts. Who told you that?

I agree.

Quoting A_McCool:

I think there is a difference in anatomical awareness and sexual awareness.
