Is this normal?

My son will be 4 years old in October and I have noticed some "sexual" behavior from him...or at least what appears to be.  Sometimes he will lay on his stomach basically with his hands under his penis and hump...he also has figured out how to "excite" himself and I thought it was a little young for all of this and am a little concerned...is it normal?  Is he just being curious or should I do something about this?  :/

It is normal. He's just curious about his own body.

Totally normal. My son was around that age when he started doing stuff like that too.

 Thank you!  I am hoping and assuming that's the case.  I am just a little paranoid when it comes to the sexual behavior because I was molested as a child and BEYOND terrified it will happen to one of my children!  Thanks again.

Quoting CheerioHolder: It is normal. He's just curious about his own body.

Normal. He does it because it feels good. He most likely has no idea about it being sexual. I dont live in your home so I can't say for sure. This is the time to tell him what you are doing is fine but you need to do it in your room.

 Thank you so much, that was going to be my next question...if I say anything about it because he isn't doing anything wrong, but of course I don't want him to do it in public or anything like that.  I appreciate your response!

I only noticed my son playing with that area in the tub. Luckily not anywhere else.

My four year old did that and I spanked him. I do not want that feeling good anytime soon.
