so i was on another post and it made me think is it wrong that i dont explain to my daughters that my sons are their half brothers, while i do call their bio dads children half brother and sisters? i should point out that my sons dad have raised my girls from 2 years, and 2 months old

I think whatever you think is best will work out.  I would consider any children i have all regular brother/sister whereas i think if the childrens father has children with another woman they would be half.

i think when they are old enough to understand you can break it down to them. but if they are still little siblings are siblings, it doesn't really matter how. i have an older half brother and half sister, but i've always thought of them as my brother and sister just as much as my little sister who is full blood.

they dont interact with bio dads kids anyway maybe thats why i put in the half . my boys and girls are all raised by me and hubby and the 6 of us are a family so thats why i dont feel that the half is necessary when it comes to my boys

Its not wrong. I am in a similar situation and maybe when he is older and ask I will explain it, but to me it doesn't matter. My son does have another half sister though , his fathers daughter who he doesn't know and that is one that bugs me. We live in a small town and they are very close to the same age. I want them to know each other before they reach middle school if possible.
