My son is seven, I just noticed a few weeks ago that he would rub his pamper in a manner that I thought he was playing with himself. It started to happen more frequent. So I would tell him he couldn't do that infront of anyone.. he would have to go to his room. So when I would catch him doing that, he'd be sent to his room in private.He does it in the bathroom for his scheduled potty breaks and sometimes when there is company.
I took him to the doctor because I noticed the tip of his penis started looking discolored.
The doctor tells me he has blood vessel damage from "pinching" it during his play.
I don't want him to feel bad about doing it... but he's hurting himself unknowingly and that scares me. He's only seven and very aggressive at times. He is hot and cold. He can go from extremely passive to throwing a tantrum (only with ME)
I don't want sexual issues to happen for him in the future. Should I not worry about it so much for his age? Should I try to talk with his doctor about a solution? He hasn't been on medication and I don't want to drug him when he really isn't bad. He isn't verbal so his tantrums are a result of frustration due to the lack of communication.
Anyone have any ideas?
ANY ridiculous comments will simply be ignored. :) Thank you.
