In potty training my son I made sure that I referred to his genitals by their anatomical name. i didn't want him growing up calling it a "wee-wee" or any other euphemistic name. This led him to ask if Mommy and Daddy had one as well. I told him Daddy did but Mommy didn't. Now he's constantly playing with his penis, saying the word, and trying to touch his father's. This makes his dad angry because he's very private. I try to tell my son that we don't touch our private parts unless we are going to the bathroom and we never touch other people's but he's not getting it. He also finds it funny to look down my shirt or grab my chest. I know its curiosity about his body and how it is the same or different from ours, but its still weird. Anyone else having this problem? Ideas?
