My Mum used to work all day and the only time I'd really get to spend with her as a kid was when she was having a bath after work. I'd sit on the toilet and chat to her about my day. As a kid, I didn't find that weird at all. I think she found it more awkward than I did, but I was too little to really properly understand the embarrassment around nudity.
#62 are you serious? I'd be worried if most 7 year olds didn't know what a vagina is! I'd be worried by a child of that age who didn't know about their genitals. It's just a part of their body, and I'd like to think by that age most parents would have explained ones genitals are private etc etc as part of stranger danger at least!
i'm 15 years old and nobody in my family (including my mother) taught me about sex and related stuff. I also never learnt about this in school. if i didn't have tv, internet and books i wouldn't know what a vagina is today. i did see my mother naked sometimes, when she entered the shower for example. but she never taught me about this stuff. except menstruation
oh btw my family still doesn't lets me play games/watch films or see things that are deemed pornographic... not exactly pornographic but i can't even watch something that has people kissing in it, or a girl in a bikini. i can, however, play/watch violent crap. double standards, i guess. and sex is so normal. it is part of life, and even plants reproduce. it shouldn't be an effin' taboo. nudity is also normal. its part of our bodies. i dunno why people are so ashamed about these things. :
Juzhan I see your side and I can see how some parents raise their children like yours did you. But there are many parents today who are very open with their children about their bodies etc. I don't find it surprising a 7 year old in today's age would know the correct names for genitals at all. Once again I think it's vital to educate your child for stranger danger alone. I was born in 1984 and according to her I embarrassed my Mother terribly one day when I yelled out for the back room of her shop 'Mum!! why doesn't my Dolly have a vagina?!' I was about 3 years old... it's now 2013 I think most parents are even more open now. I hope so any way...
I went into a bathroom in the back of a business once when I was 7 and it had a calendar with nude women in it with full on bush fros and when I came out I yelled, "MOM I COULD SEE THEIR PERIODS!!" I was a sheltered child, my parents never taught me anything about sex.
Showers with mum. It's not unusual that she's seen her mum naked at that age, what I'm surprised at is that she already knows the word vagina and how she was born, and even then I expect what happened was that she asked "where do babies come from?" and somebody told her the anatomical truth. Combine knowledge of the existence of vaginas, and the morning shower, and you have this FML.
my mother is actually religious. she goes to church sometimes but isn't a devoted christian or anything like that. she might actually be embarassed to talk about those things to me, and i don't know if i should approach her and tell her to explain. she sometimes talks about women stuff near me, but not with me, and never really bothers to explain what she is talking about. well, i do know already, though she could at least sit down with me and have a serious talk. i still don't understand a few things about my body, or reproduction. even with google, i don't find the answers i'm looking for. maybe she assumes i already know all the facts. she did tell me not to accept things from strangers when i was a kid.. she also tells me to be cautious whilst using the internet but that's all.
I think what he's getting at is how does she grasp the entire concept? She's 7 yet she knows that you're supposed to have hair on your vagina, and that her mother is different because she doesn't. I was finding out you had pubic hair around 3rd or 4th grade, and that people actually get rid of it a year or two later
I actually tried to change the word 'complaining', thought it was a bit harsh, unfortunately was too late to edit. :P In any case, I think most families probably do use baby words. My mum taught me the correct words when I was little but we still used more childish terms most of the time.
Kids are pretty good at picking up difference. I'd also like to point out that even if her Mum shaves or waxes most of the time, as I guess is implied by the FML, it doesn't mean she always does. Especially if she waxes, you have to let it grow out a bit between waxing so that the wax has something to grip onto. So the kid could have seen her Mum naked, noticed that there was hair and asked about it, for example "why do you sometimes have hair there and sometimes not". I'm pretty sure that as little kids don't have hair there yet, it would be fascinating to a child purely because it's unusual, and also if she's aware that there isn't always hair there. So it's really not that strange that the kid would be aware that her Mum's pubic region sometimes has hair but that her Mum removes it, and also that she'd find that odd.
And thats why taxis have a glass seperating the passengers from the driver
