My 3 year old son has recently started touching his butt a lot, I freaked out and took him to the doctor, they said that he is fine and it is completely normal with boys his age. Anyone have any advice I have talked to him MANY times till I am blue in the face. But I can't get him to leave his butt and penis alone. What is wrong with him? This was never a problem untill he stopped wearing the pull ups and only wears underwear.

Hahaha. My son has been in love with his butt for a long time now. They have a great relationship. He sings a butt song, shakes his rear end, and asks me to give him love taps. There is a time and place for all things. So when I see him in a social setting wagging the rear end I gently pull him aside and remind him that admiring the tush is for at home and that other people's rear ends are off limits. It is normal for many kids, regardless of age, to be fascinated by body parts. As adults we have our own hang ups in the positive or negative. We just know how to be socially acceptable (well, most of us anyways) about it. Teach not preach. Give him boundaries and tell him when he can admire and where. He'll get it. Then all will be well and he will have more things that you need to teach him about. Parenthood: they don't tell you that your child will love pointing out boobs or fart the alphabet. Its always something.
