I've seen this in our Mother's and toddler classes. Geeze it bugs me! It is not the words that are the problem, but that it is training for the child to "tune out" the mother. When I do it (praise), I ask the child what the are doing, let them tell me, and then say "Oh, I see, well done!" The reaction of a child that has tuned out mum, to me, compared to the mothers is enourmous. Tuning out is as big a problem as false praise. hope this helps. ps, I have...
We have had unembaraced nudity since birth. And everything is natural. 2 yo is such a good age to begin "how we are made". No embaracement, maybe some giggles. We have a strict "no touch" policy though. 9yo dd is totally cool when dad walks to the shower, or goes out the the washing line to get undies. 5yo dd makes a huge song and dance (literally!) and we all go If you are having problems with a 2 yo, it will only get harder for you!

On a TV program I saw of a French Dr., he allowed the ladies under his care to get into the pool as soon as they began to feel they needed, (before excessive pain).

Hope this helps a
Right darlings, time for another bump on this one! a
