Question about my cousin

Lynnette - posted on 10/21/2015 ( 2 moms have responded )




when my cousin was 3 years old he was being potty trained well my Aunt and her husband wanted him to pee standing up like a big boy. he would not touch his penis to aim the urine. Instead he would pull on the skin on top of it. My mother who has been an LPN for 9 years going on 10 told he this is normal behavior especially for a boy who was taught "good touch" "bad touch" at a young age. My aunt has sat down with him and told him its was okay to touch it to go pee pee on the potty and that Daddy does it all the time. When he was 6 he was told if he isn't gonna hold it sit like a girl and go pee. Which he got yelled at by his dad for doing so he will stand when his father is around and pee standing up but he still won't hold it. He is 10 now and still won't. Is this normal?

I think he should have counseling. No, it's not normal. People should not be afraid of their own bodies. If he has that kind of issue, he needs to work through it before he gets older and starts having sexual dysfunction because if it. It could lead to much anger and frustration.
