My son is 3yrs old, he has been potty trained for about 6 months now, for awhile he kept wiping poop on the wall or even on his shirt!!!! Everyone said it was a boy thing, I tried everything discipline wise he finally stopped.... Well now he continues to touch it and sometimes will still wipe some on his shirt. He is touching his butt after he poops, not sure why? And it isnt always from wiping his own butt. He just has a thing with poop? Is this normal? any suggestions???

I think it's normal curiosity...I caught my 2 1/2 year old daughter putting her fingers in the bowl to touch her poop today... disturbing to us but I think it's nothing more then exploring to them...good luck!

I think it's just a curiosity thing. My daughter will touch her butt even after she has pooped. & she realizes it gross because she will say "gross I just touched my poop" yet does it anyway.

hahaha not really sure sure its a normal thing he is boy so i guess it could be mines fasinated with his willy right now and was good at going to the toilet and now has gotton lazy again. i guess you could try making sure your with him when he does his poops and if he tries touching it tell him thats its yukkie and we dont touch that see how he goes he will probably get over it id say.
