Toddlers & Older Children <

We're writing a feature about toddlers and how they're fascinated with their naked bodies - and ours for that matter!
Anyone got any ways they dealt with this situation - maybe having to tell your tot 'we don't touch mummies boobies anymore', that kind of thing?
Thanks as always

Living in a houseful of men Iam the odd one out body wise. My two year old looked at me in the bath the other day and said "mummy just how do you have a wee ?"

I think that it is really REALLY important that children dont get told off for talking about more personal body parts as i really feel that to them it has no sexual conetation.
When i talk to my children or when they are having a fiddle with their bits i just try to say that its ok to do it at home and talk to mummy and daddy about it but not everyone likes to talk about it. I do try to say that if something has happened or thay have hurt anything (willy, balls or girlie bits) they are ok to tell a grown up if mummy or daddy arn't around.
As they get older i am sure they will get all embarassed about it, but for now its ok. if they mention my boobs or daddys willy we just confirm the facts and dont talk about the whys and wherefores! I am sure every chechout worker at our tescos knows that mummys bobbies made milk. And as my daughter told her preschool at the top of her voice that daddy has a big willy you just have to take it in your stride and have a giggle.
