  • He's masturbating. Yes, it's normal. It's also time you told him that it is a private activity and therefore something he should do only in the privacy of his own bedroom or the bathroom.

  • My 6 year old is constantly touching himself. All the time! I keep trying to tell him that's something you do in private, but he doesn't listen. He even does it in public! =/

  • He is masturbating. It is time for the private acts talk.
