  • It's just something boys do. Once they start, they never stop! LOL

  • I don't know about boys as I have four girls, but it is the same with them. They discovered themselves at an early age. It is part of their body and you need to let them learn that. It is not "bad" or "wrong" , just a natural part of growing up.

  • let him do it, it's natural. He is figuring out his body & that is important.

  • Every child is discovering themselves at that age its just little boys have something EXTRA to grab onto. It's not that he is mentally aware of what he is doing he just found something and is trying to figure out what he is supposed to do with it.

  • I agree with khedy. My son REALLY discovered his after he learned to walk, he got a bad yeast infection so I let him run around the house without a diaper. The obsession started that night and has gotten worse since then. He's now almost 3 and talks about his dinky (that's what we call it) at least once a day. It's normal and there is no way to get him to stop. It's a apart of his body let him explore it.

  • What is "Little things?" Do you mean penis. If so, they are exploring and having fun.
