My son is 4. He spends a large part of each day pulling, yanking, and basically just exploring his penis. I know this is normal for boys, but I'm wondering how to break the habit. I have explained to him about his penis being private, that he should not touch it in public.
I went over the meaning of public and private. I remind him all day long that if he wants to do that he needs to go to his room alone. Pretty much, I spend most of the day telling him to leave it alone.
I could use some ideas on how to get him off of this.

My 4 year old does the same, maybe not so much now. We talked to him about germs as well as it being inappropriate and he has cut back. We just remind him if we see him doing it and make him go wash his hands.
