    Aah ok so we're only allowed to use technically correct terms now when using the English language. Noted

    Well my 2 and 4 year olds are incredibly stubborn, eat everything in front of them and don't or rarely listen.

    So I'm thinking baby goat is fine.

    I don't think anyone is telling anyone what term they are "allowed" to use. I think people are just saying what they think of certain terms.

    Geez - whoops! I always call my toddler my 'kid/kiddo' - for me its not impersonal at all! It is just another name I use. I feel strange and formal when I say 'son' and use it in formal settings.

    I'm the op and i personally think kid is fine. There is nothing derogatory about using 'kid'. I WISH the woman that i know who regularly refers to her daughter as "you cheeky little b**ch" would use the word 'kid' instead!

    But don't most people have little things that they don't like but they can't really explain why/it's not always rational?

    My mum gets twitchy when I call DS 'little man' but I think it's adorable FOB calls him 'peas' and DS calls him 'corn' which I despise but it's their own little thing! Each to their own I reckon.

    B!tch, on the other hand 😳

    I would never refer to my dd, or any other little girl, as a b*tch. That is disgusting. I don't often swear in general though, so it's not a word I often use.

    My old uni lecturer and placement coordinator (for speech pathology) drilled it in to us not to use the word 'kid' while on prac or in front of parents. It was one thing she truly despised. For that reason I just don't use it.

    I totally forgot that I was also going to say that I find calling your kid b!tch is not something I like. Its an insult to a woman so I see it the same as if you say it about/to a child.

    DS is boy, the boy, kid, kiddo, his name, various nicknames - and I don't find a single one impersonal or lacking sincerity.

    B!tch is revolting

    what about multiple ''kids''? same reasoning? i can't imagine people would say ''i'm going to pick up my 2 sons, my 3 daughters and baby''.
