Ha ha! Not just my ds then? We have classic photos of him asleep on the sofa with his hand down his pjs. He is 6 now and we have begun to gently say not to do it infront of people. We don't make a big issue of it though. A friend of mine has had to deal with a 14 year old pupil doing this "with enthusiasm" during her maths lesson. That is a big issue! As long as you have got the point across by then I think you are ok.
Oh God, dh tells stories about the guy he sat next to in science who used to get it out and have a good fiddle/scratch. I thought there couldn't be other teens who did this at school. DH says he was otherwise normal. I don't think there is an otherwise. He was taking his penis out under a science bench in full view of his peers. That precludes any other assessment as to his character imo.
My 3yr old DS is terrible for this at the moment, i'm not sure whether to say too much about it as i don't want to make it an issue so that he does it even more or whether he'll just stop doing it. Bathtime is the worst!
Thanks all. I know, I DO often wonder what's wrong with the other two , but they were just never interested. I'm sure they'll work it out soon and I'll be peeling crusty tissues from the bedsheets sooner or later <vom>
But as for the littlest, it's the - as BALD once put it - the 'penisy fingers' that bother me the most. As they fiddle with your hair, or put them sweetly on the side of your face to ask for something. And while you go 'aaaahhh, bless' you realise that a minute earlier you were watching them investigate their foreskin.
