how do I address this?

Posted by   + Show Post
Tonight my 6 1/2 year old son asked me to start his bath. I agreed and started his bath. I walked out of the bathroom and went to finish putting the dishes in the dishwasher. He called me back to ask me if I'd help him wash his hair. Normally he does but tonight for whatever reason he wanted me to. I agreed and went back to the bathroom to wash his hair. I grab the shampoo and lean over the tub to wet his hair. I noticed him very intently watch the water. I asked him to put his head up and he was still intently looking down at the water. I look to see what is his big deal and I can see him flexing his pee pee and rubbing the tip of it. I told him that was inapporiate and to stop or mommy will not wash your hair. He giggles and flexes his pee pee again. I put the soap down and went into the kitchen to ask dh to wash our son's hair. I explained what he did and dh said he'd have a talk with Gage. Dh walked in and our son was fondling himself. Is that normal for a six year old? Should I be concerned. We've had the good touch bad touch talk a few times before. I've explained how touch other's or allowing other's to touch you is unexceptable. The things I go through leaving in a house with 4 boys.

Well, my DS is only 8 months, but he's already interested in it.  As soon as you take his diaper off he's grabbing at it (truthfully, I'm afraid he's going to rip it off!  lol).  I agree with the PP though.  Both of you should have a chat with him.  Don't call this a "bad touch" though.  It's perfectly normal and he shouldn't be made ashamed of it.  Just tell him it's something that is done in private.
