Our expert says:
This is actually quite normal behavior in young children. Exploring the body, especially the parts that are generally covered up is very common. The worst thing you can do is punish him for it as he will not stop but rather resort to this kind of play in secret. What you can do is calmly ask him what is he doing and why. It may be more awkward for you than for him. Rather de-mystify the situation than create a taboo.
