Ok so I know the correct term for a girl and knew it growing up as cute terms and technical term, but when I got to health class and they explained the only area called the vagina was just the passageway i was taken aback, and felt like i was taught incorrectly when taught to referance the entire area as a vagina. So when I need to referance the entire area i dont feel calling it all a vagina is the correct term since that isnt what it all is called. At this point i have just referanced it as little butt with my daughter when it is having her wash herself or wipe. The sad part is i know people really do think the technical terms are the best- the only thing is so do i that is the point! When i tell her she needs to wipe herself when she pees she peed out of her urethra not her vagina and the labias needs to be wiped thats just too much to say to a 4 year old and when she is cleaning herself -the point is to clean the whole area-so my question is what to call everything to sum it up? At this point its her little butt and big butt is all i have come up with, so if anyone knows the correct term that i just havent been taught let me know. Thank you!
