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.

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.)
