I’m a single mum with a 10 year old boy. A work colleague of mine told me today about how her son has ended up with an infection because he hadn’t been cleaning his willy properly. Her GP was apparently unhappy that she hadn’t taught her son how to clean himself properly. I didn’t have my son circumcised, and I left his foreskin alone when he growing up as I was told to do. I guess I had always thought I would have a conversation with my son about this at some point, but it’s never come up.
My question is, for those of you with uncircumcised boys, when did you/they start to roll their foreskin back for cleaning? Did any of you do it when you were changing and bathing your boys? If you didn’t how did you deal with the hygiene issue, i.e. did you teach/show them?
