NEVER tell your child that their body is DIRTY.

Always positively reinforce boundaries.

Just to post a quick question... I agree that it is normal, but there is a chance that his penis is bothering him. Have you checked to see if he has a rash or other problem? If not, you may want to take him to a doctor to have him checked out, just to rule out that possibility. Otherwise, all the other responses are more than applicable.

I agree with the others,let him know that its normal and he can do it at home in his bedroom or bathroom when he is alone. And when you are out in public remind him not to. Explain to him that its something you only do when you are alone.

He's certainly old enough to stop playing w/ himself in public. I like the 'signal word' idea as a reminder. As for at home... he's a boy... I don't think it ever stops. lol

Tell him it is ok for him to touch himself in the privacy of your home and his bedroom. He may not even realize that he does it sometimes. You can teach him a "signal word" to remind him to stop and put his hands in his pockets. That way you don't have to fuss at him in public.

Remove his hands if you ever catch him playing with his body part in public because no one wants to see that .... tell him that it's dirty but he can touch himself when he's alone but not in front of someone or someplace (at the mall, school, park, someone's house, outside, etc.)

It is normal but you just need to keep letting him know that he shouldn't play with it in public. When you see him playing with it in public, just discreetly remove his hand and remind him not to.

He is ALWAYS playing with his penis. He does it in public, I tell him to stop people don't want to see that, but it's like a have to do thing to him. Sorry I'm new to this I wasn't sure how to put this up here
