Oh my days, I am at the end of my tether with the toilet humour.
In particular the word willy. I know this might sound funny but he's started saying things like stinky willy and sticky willy and, the most unbearable one is taste my willies. It sounds horrendous and I think stemmed from something else he was saying 'taste my...' about, but it just sounds horrible
This morning he was acting sooooo ridiculously silly. Almost like he was delirious, going around saying stinky willies. I found out, from him, that he told a friend at preschool this phrase and they copied him.
What's the best way to handle this? Ignore it? I have discussed the word and when it is appropriate to say it but that's fallen on deaf ears! It's driving me nuts!
No advice, but I can empathise. My 4 year old takes great delight in saying poo poo, bum and other silly words. Her friends are the same. Definitely an age thing. I ask her nicely not to say silly words but it falls on deaf ears. I mainly let her get on with it and don't react and she eventually stops.
My son is the same. We live in Scotland so he refers to his penis as his "boaby" which doesn't sound too bad ha. But he's obsessed with pooh. Everything is pooh or related. If we're in public and he's getting too over excited I tell him to use his inside voice because some people don't like words like that but otherwise I leave him to it to get it out his system.
My almost 3 year old has just started this, but she has started her brother who is 6 off again. Walking home the older kids ( 6 year olds friends) talk about poo most of the way home. Not helped by the fact that us grown up shout poo every few minutes to warn them of dog poo on the ground. Ijust ignore them. Sometimes tell them to stop if we are out in public and they are talking loudly. They call each other poo head and wee blanket. Makes no sence to me but hey ho. They will grow out of it. They do it more when i fuss about it.
Mine do this, I try and ignore. It's very annoying but if I add it to the list of things to nag them about I feel like I would never stop nagging. Now when my 3 year old takes his willy out in the living room that's when I step in!
Our 2 year old has recently started potty training and it seems to have started off a poo obsession! Our almost 4 year old is okay about poo but seems to have an obsession with her two younger brothers private bits which can lead to her saying awkward things. Personally I wouldnt tollerate calling someone else poo head and would explain it was rude and mean to call names even if others do it but I do think its an age thing and often ignoring the toilet humor is probably the best way to deal with it.
