Okay so a back story I was molested as a young child...so I have always taught my son actual names for his body parts (Penis) or a womans (vagina) he knows they are different and for those that judge you can not tell me your child has never walked in on you in the bathroom. ANYWAYS...I have been told because of this I am making my son now 7 too sexual aware....REALLY???
Whoever told you that - that it's making your son too sexually aware - is flat out nuts! You are absolutely doing the right thing by teaching your child the proper names. Parents who teach their children cutsie nicknames are doing their children a HUGE disservice.
My mom was always very open with me when I asked questions but she always explained it in a way that I would understand (age appropriate) because of that as I got older I felt 100% comfortable talking to her about anything..still do. I have talked to my boys about their private parts and that no one should ever touch them...even their doctor talked to them about that, which i thought was great! they are in school and should know this. I dont know who told u that ur making ur child too sexually aware but since when do we let other parents affect our judgment with how we parent out own children? advice is one thing, use ur own judgment u know whats best for ur child. I am sorry u went through that as a child but ur a good mother to want to protect ur child!
No, you're good. And better off than someone who told their daughter to refer to her vagina as a peach. I read that on here!
Ugh. I've seen this sort of thing on CM as well and it's so irritating. Why would anyone want to teach their girl to refer to her vulva as a piece of food? If they were ever approached by a sexual predator (God forbid) and the predator says something like "Can I try a taste of your cookie?" I would think it would just be way too confusing for the poor girl. I mean, it's right to eat food, right? See where the justification could go? It's just way to easy for the predator to use it to their own advantage.
