Hey Mommys ! I have a question..okay so my 21 month old hasa habit of touching himself, when he sits on the pot & sometimes in the mornings while he is sleep. Am I supposed to tell him to stop or do I just let him keep doing it? I know that he is at the exploring age but Its just to much for me..pretty much annoying! What do I do ?

You do want to correct you do it will determine if it is corrected or encouraged. The best way to correct a bad habit is to introduce a good one. Divert his attention and begin to teach him about his body and what it is for and what it is not for. How to keep it in health. Children understand...but we have to explain and re-explain, and explain again...This is the work of a train their little minds in right directions. :)
