Does your son touch his pee pee every time he's naked?

I hate the fact that he's always touching his pee pee. At first I thought he had just realized what in between his legs. I check him all the time it looks normal no rash or nothing and I make sure to clean him well and let it air out at least for an hour each day. He even gets mad at me for moving his hands out of there. Ewww. How can I make him stop.

  • lol. It's perfectly normal. Im sorry this bothers you, but I promise you it's not in a sexual way for him. Shunning him from his body may backfire on you in the future. Good luck!

  • My son is 2 and a half and does all the time. He is always naked. He puts his clothes on to go out but as soon as he gets in he strips off.

  • My 14 does this, yes. It's completely normal. I think the more you make a big deal out of it the more he will want to do it. Just make him wash his hands afterwards if it bothers you.

  • You cannot make him stop... sigh... thus begins the lifelong fascination with the pee pee. It is perfectly natural. All little boys do it. The more of a deal you make of it, the more he will do it. You do need to set limits, though, tell him that if he needs to touch it, he can do that only in the bath or whatever place you determine reasonable. You didn't mention his age, so this advice may or may not be appropriate, but as soon as he is old enough to understand, make sure that he knows to do that only in a private place, i.e. the bath.

  • Its a guy thing. They start playing with it the minute they discover that it is down there, and never stop. DH is 25 and can't keep his hands off of his either... so he has no room to fuss at the 7y/o, 2y/o or 1y/o that play with theirs.
