[QUOTE=Polliwog;14730030]Following your logic, shouldn't you be teaching him that girls have vulvas too?

I would but he has special needs with limited capability of understanding. I will teach him more as he gets older that vagina, vulva, clitoris, etc., are all different but belong in the same area.

I remember the first time he saw his dad's penis he called it a tail. That is when proper naming started.

But, the vulva is the part that he sees when he sees you naked. So, that's the term that I use.

butt is one of the nicer things we call it.

butcheekies is our fav right now!

we don't really believe in 'bad words', we just tell him that some people don't want to hear certain words, so we only use them at home or with certain friends, not in public, or with grandma. we use the anatomical terms interchangeably with whatever silly ones.

i hope i'm doing this right !
i keep thinking of that steve martin bit 'can i mambo, dogface, to the banana patch?'

He is 5 years old. He does not see me naked and even if he did he would most definitely not be that close to me to see anything other than pubic hair.

Really? I have no problem with my five-year-old seeing me naked. It doesn't happen a whole lot these days but I have no problem with him being in the room as I get dressed.

I have a 5yo as well and him seeing me naked is a non issue since it is the norm for us. I feel if I dont make it a big deal then he will grow up not thinking it is a big deal and have a realistic view of the female form. That said if either of us become uncomfy with it then I will take care that it dosnt happen any more.

My son is an inappropriate toucher due to his sensory issues and it makes me uncomfortable. Imagine my surprise one day when bending over naked to pick up the bath matt to have a finger accidently touching my anus.

Not super comfy. He thought it was hilarious though.

yes but i prefer the term bum.
post #169 of 174
Yes we do. I normally say bum, but I do say butt occasionaly.

We are heiny people at our house.

I think that part of childhood is getting to say "noggin" instead of head and "tummy" instead of abdomen and yes, "heiny". I have no problem with it.

LOL! Same here! He loves that word and the word "butt" as well - but says both of them in a silly manner. But DH and I refer to it as "bottom".
post #172 of 174
I voted "no way" because I think along with the words "poop" and "fart" it is one of my least favorite words. We use "bottom" or "boot-ay".

I was definately taken aback when I heard people referring to the "nether regions" of kids as "butts." To me, it's kind of vulgar, something you might hear in college ...but not around the home.

My husband and I say "po po" ( I think a German term) or bottom.

I'll say I've gotten used to hearing others use butt around kids so I no longer shudder...
