My 4 year old recently discovered how to roll back his foreskin. Since then, every time he’s showering or getting changed he stretches it right back and makes a point of showing whoever is around. I guess he’s always played with himself a little bit as boys tend to do, but it has increased since he found out what he can do with his foreskin. I have asked him not to do it unless he’s washing it in the shower, but he hasn’t listened. It is actually quite embarrassing, he did it in front of my sister and I got a phone call from a babysitter saying that something had happened to his willy (after a brief panic I had to give an anatomy lesson).
Has anyone else had this issue with their sons? Will he grow out of it? Any ideas on how to stop him doing it?
