So my son who is 5 has just become fascinated with his penis, and today at tbe babysitters a girl who is 7 yrs old. who always talks about girl and boy private parts, asked him to pull his pants down and she would take pictures with her imaginary camera. I was mortified and am at a loss as to what to say or do to help him understand this is wrong. I don't want to get angry at him for something he doens't understand. any comments would be great help!

Let him know that he should only show his private parts to you or a doctor. He shouldn't be showing them to anyone else.

My 8yo is still fascinated by it but he knows not to play with it in public. They play with it because it feels good and with boys it's easier to get to.
