I have no clue what to do! My son is 6 years old, and is getting erections! I know that this happens to babies, toddlers and young boys of every age, but what the hell do I say to him?! I notice he sits with his hands in his pants -- think Al Bundy from Married With Children. I know its not a sexual response to anything - I am pretty sure that at 6 years old his sexual organs are not quite ready to do much of anything...
But what do I say? What do I tell him? How do I handle it when I notice that he is sitting there with his hands in his undies holding it (eww), or worse find him sitting on the couch with his thing out - and erect!? Help! Any other moms of boys out there who have gone through this, or is going through this, and know what to do?
I have seen articles / comments that say, don't freak out - just tell him to go in his room until it goes away, but then its like - wtf do I tell him the reason is for that!?
Aye yi yi. I want a girl. I think it would be much easier LOL
