How do I keep my child from talking about her private parts in public?

Category: Uncategorized

How do I keep my little girl from referring to a private body parts by their proper names in front of other children? I don’t know why so many parents fuss over the proper names.

Not all parents are comfortable referring to body parts, particularly private ones, to their children. They certainly will not appreciate another child coming home saying they learned from another child. Many parents refer to those parts with what they consider less offensive names or terminology. You have to admit that sometimes children will say inappropriate things at really inappropriate times. Hearing a child blurt out the name of a given body part in an inappropriate situation can really cause quite a stir. Whether or not you agree with that decision on their part, you have to respect what is considered socially proper, especially when dealing with children. Some parents are a lot more restrictive and protective. As each child’s parent they have the right to teach them as they see fit. Others believe that they should teach their kids the correct terminology for all their body parts from the beginning. When you teach your little girl the proper names and teach her about her body, it is also important to teach her about privacy and when it is or is not a correct time to bring up the subject. The situations that demand privacy are something you have to teach her. Kids just say what they are taught. Especially with smaller children, for the most part they are trying to shock. They are only repeating what they learned They have to learn about social etiquette, and what is proper or improper to talk about with other children, from you. Tell your daughter straight out that those words are not words she is to say in front of other children. Make sure you stress how important that is, to her. Mama Nono
