My boys both started "exploring" themselves about that age. But at that age they have no satisfying feelings from it. Just that when you mess with it it changes. Don't freak out mama. It's normal.
Oh My. He wasn't Jerking off. He was exploring and feeling his body.
It is VERY normal for a child that age to touch his and feel his penis !
I have 3 boys in case your wondering how I know .
Absolutely not. In fact, studies have shown that kids can masturbate in the womb! Infants can masturbate by rubbing around and young toddlers can do it too---some, as soon as they can reach it! In fact, your son may be "late" in this activity. It's normal, as you know. Just let him know he can only do it at home, in his room, or in the bathroom.
