Hi -

My 41/2 year old son has been experiencing erections on a pretty frequent basis lately. The problem is that he calls it a "boner" and has no hesitation about telling people when he has one. My issue is I am not a fan of that word..hahaha....any ideas about how to help him to express what is going on in "more comfortable" terms?? More conformable vocabulary?

Oh my gosh! :) That is funny.

My son never had a word for it. I can't think of a better word for it. Perhaps let him know that it is perfectly normal, but something he should keep private and not announce to eberyone, maybe just to close family. Where did he get the term he uses from?
