  • Ask your doctor. Maybe it is a blood pressure issue?

  • Totally normal. He's discovering and enjoying his ding dong. Discourage touching privates in public but be careful about making him self consicous about his junk.

  • If he's acting like it's bothering him, then it's NOT enjoying and discovering his "ding dong" "ding-dong" previously said. Good grief. he needs to see his doctor. It's not completely normal for a 2 year old to CONSTANTLY have an erection like that. Please take him and have him evaluated.

  • if it's a constant erection thats been there for more than 8 days and he grabs at it like it bothers him then yes..go see ur doctor becuz he could have an infection..

  • Boys do that because it's a natural way to retract the foreskin - even if he's been circ., the body still reacts this way. It usually happens a little later, but it's not unheard of at 2.

  • My little brother had that problem when he was younger. Come to find out, he always had an erection cause he was ALWAYS touching it. Just let your son know that it will stop bothering him if he stops touching it.

    I caught my stepdaughter touching herself the other day and she said to me, "I'm just looking at my vagina!" OMG! I told her that she doesn't have a vagina.....she has a hoo hoo, she will have a vagina when she's 16. Then she goes, "Well, Jeff (my son) has a penis." I told her no he doesn't, he has a bipper and he'll have a penis when he's 16 too!

    Kids! I just don't feel right having a 7 year old saying vagina and penis......
