  • Tell him that it is inappropriate to do that he can see that it is there at potty time and bath time and that is enough, you have to make him stop doing it and tell him no over and over

  • tell him that is something he can do in his alone time. When he is in the bath or alone in his room. But his private parts are only for him and no one else needs to see him touching them.

  • Assure him that it isn't going anywhere he seems to be afraid it is going somewhere like somebody told him it could, talk to him about it and see what he says.

  • rolling on floor if you figure out how to get him to stop lemme know, my husband (not in public of course) can't keep his hands off his either! Can't tell you the # of times I've looked over while watching tv or driving & he's just checking it ahhhh men...

  • Tell him it's a private thing that can only be done in the bathroom. Each time you catch him send him tell him to go potty. Eventually, he'll get upset that you think he has to go potty all the time and quit.

  • I also would just tell him it is okay to touch it but only when he is in his bedroom by himself. If youa re not in the room and walk in then you need to say..okay someone is in the room please stop touching it!

  • Tell him that if he would like to have his hands in his pants he will need to do that in his room. He will either take you up on it and you will no longer be subject to watch or he will stop. Touching himself is not a bad thing it is just a private thing. teach him modesty that's all.

  • i think that never stops once they discover that thing! LOL
    but i suggest telling him its ok to touch yourself but that is a PRIVATE thing. you do that in your room without other peopel around.
