We call it his 'willy wonka' - LOL. Not sure how this came about
DD we call a 'gina cause she could never say it correctly.

As to the legal question of proof of sexual abuse, while the anatomically correct terms ie penis, vagina are the clearest, common words that kids use that don't have other uses, eg "willy" "fanny" and "doodle" are generally unambiguous and ok.
Euphemisms like "flower" and "golf set" are where proof gets difficult - "uncle frank touched my flower" might not even register as a cause for concern.

I feel like it's weirdly unlike me and my usual attitudes towards what to teach kids, but I do prefer nicknames for children's genitals, particularly boys. Provided the real names are still taught and used and aren't thought of as rude or taboo.
I know this is really silly but penis makes me think of an adult man's one and the things it can do/is used for, whereas doodle or willy just sound like more appropriate words for harmless, innocent little boy's bits.
hmm which probably says something about how I perceive adult men's ones really (clearly not harmless and innocent!)

I think something can have nickname and the person still know it's proper name.
I grew up using the word mooey, but I knew it was my v.agina
Giving a nickname to something shouldn't stop a someone knowing the correct word (obviously if taught it)
Surely if you had a child with a nickname that was used more often than their full name, they wouldn't forget their actual name right?

Proper names but occasionally willy or fanny (for girl bits obviously)

I still think its good to call them by their proper names but the kids who don't will still be looked after in court

What's the correct word for bum?
I'll teach my kids all the names when they are older. I don't see a problem with calling it pee pee, wee wee or balls. It's not like I've never said the medical name to them before.
We say butt, bum, backside, tummy etc.
when they have stomach ache I've never thought to teach them to say their intestines hurt :/
I don't get hung up on stuff like this

Use the correct names here. Although DS does call his a doodle but I say penis. When he was younger he pronounced it noodle. Sounded very cute!! I say balls for now but those rarely come up in convo.
Girls - vagina and boobs but do say breasts sometimes.
