I've found a debate on facebook stating that calling your child's private part a peepee is damaging to the child's confidence later in life. I don't think so but was wondering about the larger scale of opinion on the matter.

I wouldn't say it is damaging, but I do wonder what is wrong with just using the term penis. It's important for your child to know the correct terms to use.

I don't think referring to it as a peepee is particularly 'damaging'... as long as the child is also taught proper names. I do think it's rather silly though. It's a body part like any other body part... why NOT refer to it as what it is?
