Re: What to call private parts?

Whether you call it penis, privates or weinerschnitzel, vagina, bum or "girlie parts" at some point your child is going to manage to embarass you by either talking about it at an inappropriate moment, or displaying it. That is just what kids do. It's how they learn and relearn the boundaries for body parts in a social context - by stepping beyond them.

BTW - my DH's name is Felix. My 2 1/2 yo nephew can't say Felix. So dh started out as Uncle Pee, which he didn't care for one bit. That was...until he graduated to Uncle Pelis.
