WHEN SHOULD I AS A MOM EXPECT MY SON TO START DOING BOY STUFF?

YA KNOW LIKE TOUCHING HIMSELF. HE IS ALREADY HITTING HIMSELF THERE AND TENDS TO SCRATCH AND RUB IT A LITTLE. BUT HE IS 5. THAT IS NOT SOMETHING YET THAT I SHOULD WORRY ABOUT RIGHT. OR AM I BEING NIEVE?

  • don't ever expect your son, or child for that matter to do something cuz other kids are doing it. i learned that the hard way. your son will do whateva he's suppose to do as a boy when he's ready. these doctor have an average of what kids should be doing, not all kids act the same. time and paitence is your medicine

  • Don't worry It's normal. Every little boy finds his little worm . It starts around potty training time . One day he will hit himself too hard and think THAT HURTS!!! he may also sweat there that also would make him rub. just relax he's a boy, I've seen men do it in public thats just no manners

  • Mine began about 4. We just had talks about it's okay but it is a private thing. At that time we also started talking about good touches/bad touches.
    Around age 14 if I went looking for my sons...almost without fail they were in the bathroom. DH called them each 'kings of masterbation" during that time. It's just normal boy stuff
