How do I know when my son touches his pee pee too much? He's 21 months and it seems like he does it every chance he gets. He will even go as far as taking off his pants or even his pjs then his diaper to get to it. It's very frustrating and I just don't know when enough is enough. Please let me know if it's just my son or if this is normal.

  • it's normal, but do try to limit playtime to being in the bathtub or something like that. Some people get their panties in a knot when a child does this at inappropriate times. There's a time and place for everything and he needs to learn where and when it's OK to do this. Or if you feel it's not ok nip it now. Don't make a huge fuss just remove his hands and tell him no.

  • It's normal. Don't make a big deal out of it and he will get over it.

  • I have three boys and it is totally normal! I agree with telling him it is only ok in his room or in the bath. When I had my first son I freaked out when he started grabbing himself. When I talked to my mom about it she just laughed and said that their penis is their favorite toy from "Womb to Tomb".
