Q.

4 year old playing with exch other penis


Hi

Would this be the appropriate forum to ask about 4 year old playing with each others penis? or is here a phycologist forum that i should ask in>  ?

I''''ll ask anyway - maybe someone can help in this forum
My brothers 4 year old has been caught playing with another 4 year old penis and versa visa. (also 4 year old) This is the second time this has happened in 6 months

Should this be a concern of the kids not being supervised properly or could something be wrong with them/him?

This is very common and is only due to a natural curiosity about their bodies at this age. It does not have any sexual aspect to it.Try your best to ignore this behaviour.

Peas, thanks for your reply

I really hope that is the case - my brother is in very concern about this behaviour

I think this is normal exploring behaviour. My four year old plays with his penis in front of the TV and then shows me. It seems the other children at school do it as well. Hopefully this is just a phase which will wear out.
