Most baby dolls are infamous for their gender vagueness. But, now there are a slew or anatomically correct genitalia baby dolls on the market. Some parents and caregivers find these baby dolls offensive or sexualized. Others don’t see any problem in teaching kids about all of their body parts.
Many people like using funny or silly names when discussing private parts with children. But most child psychologists suggest that by age 3 we should start using correct body part words with children such as penis instead of pee-pee. We don’t do that with other body parts so there is no reason to be afraid of teaching children the correct names of body parts everyone has.
Some experts are concerned that adult embarrassment of using the proper terms of body parts actually contributes to body shame at such an early age.
