How do I get my son...... adult content

to keep his hands out of his pants? He is always playing, touching, scratching his penis. I tell him its okay to play and explore it, but not in public. And yet he can't keep to keep his hands off it. He's 5 btw.

  • Make sure he doesn't have a rash or something and then when he does that, tell him he has to be in his room. Tell him it's private and that nobody wants to see it. Also make sure he washes his hands after. That right there is a deterrent. Tell him nobody wants him to touch them with his penis germy hands.

  • You need to be firm. Call his name sharply and tell him "I have told you not to touch your privates in front of others. If you do it again you will get a time out"..then follow through. HJe is plenty old enough to be learning about appropriate and inappropriate behaviors.

  • Well I would give him "The Look" and tell him whose boss around here and what the bosses rules are

  • Give warnings. Tell him its okay to do it in privacy. Is he itchy or something?

  • I would start discipling him if you have given him several warnings
