Good reminder on why we need to teach our kids proper words for their private parts
Do you teach your kids to say penis and vagina? Or use cute names for private parts?

Yes and kids must be educated about good/bad touch as early as possible since these type of stories are coming out more often!
Yes! Definitely!
Good to know...
It’s good to know.. we can’t embrace abt to teach our own child for the good cause .. thanks for sharing
Kids say the darnest things
Mama: when will you stop drinking milk from a bottle shan? Shan: when I am a big girl Mama: I thought you are a big girl Shan: bigger girl Mama: okay, give me a concrete number - how old will you be

How much should a 3 year old eat?
My Daughter can complete this whole meal. Even I can’t! Is that normal?

It’s in growing stage .. they feel more hungry than usual so let her eat it but allow her eat more healthy food than junk
She is probably going through a growth spurt. She also looks like she's a healthy weight, so no need to worry. My 7 year old son eats more than my husband, so I'm not too surprised haha.
As long as she's not overweight it's fine. My daughter eats ALOT too, more than we adults but so long as she's healthy , eats healthy did, we're fine with it(:
She could be having a higher metabolisn. so she might be burning out food faster.
Yes it’s fine. She definitely does not look overweight 😀.
