As a therapist working with children my training has always been to favour adult words, like penis or vagina, in empowering the child against child abusers. But unfortunatly I can't remember the research that originaly led me to this- so if anyone knows perhaps they could share I have a bit of a peeve with the habit of some men, which I assume come from boyhood, in naming their penis as if it is a third person.

My partner and myself kept our own names, as we are in a same-sex relationship the name changing thing just wasn't an issue for us. Our son has both our names, hyphenated, because 'those in authority' need a bit of a clue in working out who he is related to I think his name sounds rather impressive and it would neat if he ended up as a poet- but he'll probably end up as a police officer and have a strange nickname instead

It's such a part of me I forget I've not always...
Well, here is my confession Whenever I get together with a group of other mums and they talk about how their little darling can't eat wheat, or milk, or whatever I just want to scream about the collective allergy nurosis of the 21st century. But I just nod and smile politely Also, when I buy eco friendly detergent, soap and stuff I don't believe it works but I buy it out of guilt- and I don't really want the recycled toilet paper that looks like cardboard. I want the...
Any ideas on what would treat bathroom mould? Thanks
