Over to you.

Every week I’ll pose a question asked by a reader, perhaps you want advice, tips, or suggestions, maybe you’d like another point of view or some support. if you’d like to ask a question email me at wingingitnews@yahoo.com.

This week the question comes from Zoe Cripps who tweets at @Lycrawidow, its a question thats relevant to all parents. Zoe asks Do you teach your toddler/child the proper term for private parts, i.e vagina/penis rather than winky/twinkle/other?

Personally I believe its best to teach the proper names because first of all we teach the proper names for all of the other body parts, an arm is an arm, a nose is a nose etc, but also because I feel its important to teach children that bodies, and all the parts of them, are not something to be ashamed of. 

Let us know what you think in the comments.

  1. Seeing as this is my own question; we have taught our toddler the correct terms. I absolutely agree with how you’ve worded it above. We teach arms/legs/ nose etc, and they are all body parts! Thank you for posing the question! X
