I want to start off by saying that I am NOT a particularly prissy person! LOL I just have issues hearing the word 'vagina' coming from my kids' mouths. *I* can't even say it to anyone but my DH. (I know - silly) I know that it's recommended to teach children the correct terminology, but I am not comfortable with that at this age and really don't want the kids to get *any* sense of embarrassment on my part when talking about these things. And if I use that word, believe me they'll get it that I'm uncomfortable! I want them to have healthy attitudes about their bodies and I just know I would freeze up every time the "V" word came up. (I dunno - maybe it comes from being an 'only' girl with 3 brothers. I have no problem saying 'penis'. hehehe)
So, since my problem is with the word itself, can I ask what other people here use with their kids when referring to the female anatomy?
Hope this doesn't sound too lame - I just know myself and would hate to have one of my hang-ups affect how my kids see themselves.
