Hello there,

My name is Brunna, and I have 2 boys: 5 yr-old and a 9 yr-old.

Now, my 9 year-old whose started to speak at the age of 5, and had been under a lot of life changing experiences, like changing homes, having a brother, moving to different a country and the list goes on and on.

So, my son has a habit of telling me everything from the spoon that he dropped on the floor and then made sure he washed it before he ate, through the touching things even himself.

Sometimes I think he had just discovered that he has a body.

So when he comes and tells me that he touched his peepee every now and then I used to tell him that, what he was doing was normal and that all boys go through that, but after a long day at the museum today I just didn't have all the patience, I normally have.

I told him that when boys touch their PENIS, it is normal and that if he felt the need of doing that he should go to the bathroom and just touch himself there, I also told him that as he grows he will get hair down there and as he touches his penis he will get to a point where it will get hard and it will come out some white liquid out.

For my surprise he said that it had already come out that liquid in the past and that it came out just as pee.

Now, after all my explanation I told him that he did not have to tell me every time he does that.


MY QUESTION TO YOU IS: WHAT SHOULD I DO OR BUY TO EXPLAIN TO HIM IN A MORE SCIENTIFIC WAY THAT MASTURBATION IS A PART OF LIFE AND THAT HE WILL DO THAT AS HE GET OLDER, AND THAT IT IS OK?. BUT THAT IT IS NOT OK TO SAY IT OUTLOUD THAT YOU DO IT!

Thank you for the help,


Brunna
