Using anatomically correct language when we talk to our toddlers, helps empower them to understand what's going on in their bodies, which helps to warn off any potential sexual predators that are adults from thinking that this is a child that they could easily access and keep, uh, under the wraps of secrecy, the easiest places is to do this is around potty talk.
When my kids have gone poop and they need help lapping, I will say. Do you want me to wipe your bottom on your anus or would you like to clean your bottom on your anus? I'm happy to help, but that's up to you. You're going pee. I would say. Okay, good job. Make sure that you aim your penis right into the potty or, Oh yeah.
Okay, so you went pee pee. Did you pat your Volvo with your tissue paper? Same is true. When they ask questions about my body, perhaps I'm changing and we're all changing together. They see my body and they say, Why is there hair on? Say, Oh, on my Volvo, Oh, well, hair is something that happens when people get a little bit older.
When you're around a teenager, your body changes and it starts to grow hair in your armpits and in your private area. So for boys around their testicles and their penis, and for girls around their V, the more you use accurate words, the less uncomfortable it is for your kids in very specifically dangerous situations to come to you and say, This person tried to do this.
