2 Bumps

2 1/2 yr old son

When he is in the tub or if he actually uses the potty he pulls on his *winky* so hard it turns purple. I yell at him and tell him he cant do that. Im afraid hes going to hurt himself. Any suggestions on how to get him to stop?

  • Just leave it alone. Don't make a big deal out of it. He won't hurt himself.

  • I think he will stop if it gets to a point where it hurts.
