Got an Answer?
I tell my son it's ok to touch himself, but only in his room, when he does it he gets sent to his room.
Lmao...my husband still has his hand down his pants. My son who is 7 will do the same. I just say it's fine that you do it, but try not to in public. It's something you do at home. I'm not telling him its gross, or yucky or improper. It'll mess him up later on. Dont make a huge deal over it. We used to ask my son at that age, do you need to go potty? If he said no, then I'd say, ok, then take your hand off your penis in public. As he got older,all i had to say was do you need to use the bathroom? He'd smile and say no and take his hand off his penis. They are boys. They'll do it even as a grown man!
Totally normal. My son is 3 and recently when I picked him up from daycare they told me he had started pulling his out and showing his friends. We tell him to put it away every time he does it. He very rarely is allowed to walk around the house naked anymore (he always used to walk around naked but if its not covered he plays with it) We tell him that we don't want to see it and its yucky. He is my eldest so I'm only going off of what I've been told but they outgrow it. Just be persistent and tell him to stop and put it away whenever you see it.
Yes. They get over it. Didn't have as many incidents though. Just said its a bit rude when there's people around to put your hand in there.
It’s a boy thing. As adults they have learned (mainly) to play with their penis in private or at least not in public. Don’t stress. Just ignore.
My son had an infection under his foreskin and the doctor had a go at me and told me I probably don’t let him play with it enough to encourage the skin to gently come back on its own 😂😂😂 also told be that’s a common problem in same sex parenting ( I am a single mum, don’t know where the f**k he got that from, not my regular doctor)
So on the up side less risk of infections 😂😂😂
This is normal for boys. We pull our son up on it by saying that it's not for touching. Just every time we see him do it, we tell him to stop and how it's rude and not for touching.
This is how we are raising our son. If he grows up with issues later on, we'll deal with those as we get to them.
But I have never met anyone with hangups about consensual adult sexual relations.
So for me, telling my son it's not for touching, is sensible. But, you parent your kids your way, and I'll parent my kids my way.
I never had any issues or guilt surrounding it. In fact i love giving my husband head.
When my kids do it, I tell them private parts are private- so we do that in our room. They wouldn't want to be in their room all day, so it works pretty well. You could also try replacing it with another habit, like give him a squishy ball in his pocket to squeeze when his hand starts wandering...
