I know some parents do not want their kids calling their "parts" by their proper name, and others feel the exact opposite..

What category do you fall in?

We always just call it what it is because I feel if I call it something else.

I just call it his pee-pee. That's what I've always called it for baby boys. I really can't stand the word penis. Not because I'm embarrassed by it, but I just don't like it. Also if I had a girl I would probably call it pee-pee too. I detest the word vagina. I always have and hate even worse when men shorten it to 'vag'. I remember a day when the word just wasn't out there and now it seems Everytime I turn around some woman is referring to her vagina. I don't care about it!! Ok, sorry for the rant lol! I'm truly not embarrassed by the proper words I just think they're kinda ugly and not necessary to use with little kids.

When she understands more we will use proper terms but right now i normally don't have to call it anything but when she sticks her hand down there i tell her to get her hand out of her girly bits, not sure why i mainly don't want to have to clean poop of her hand too

When he is old enough to understand the term I will tell him the real name to it.

Right now I just say don't play with that.

With Breana I do the same thing but say girl parts.

We say "bits" here. I would use that for either a girl or a boy. Not sure when I will introduce proper names.

We do a mix of both. With the girls I watched their mother used to try the proper names, and the girls would call their bits a china. So it stuck. Also, like when she is trying to did in the side of her diaper, I call it a cooch. The boys, stole Tom's word "winky" Yes a grown man refers to his junk as a winky. But they know both and Thomas knows to only talk about it to me or Tom, and if he were to get hurt or something at school, to just say 'private parts'

That's what we'll do, too.

When we were little we found tampons in my mom's purse, asked her what they were, and she said "It's private." One time one of my sisters was in public and searching through her purse and yelled "Mom! I see a private in your purse!" I can only imagine how funny that would've been to hear.
