6 years old boy penis erection

i am a single mother raiising a 6year old boy. Last night as we were watching tv he said his penis is painful then I asked him why, he said he likes the girl on tv and when he looks at her his penis goes up and it''s painful

Is it not too early for him to start feeling like that, how can he last after some1 his mom age and he gets turned on.

Should i be worried.

This is common and is normal and difficult as it may be to believe, it has no actual sexual reason at your son's age. Although some experts recommend that you should already start with sex education after this, your son is still really too young for this. So do your best to explain any questions that he may ask you but don't go into great detail at this stage.

little boys start having erections moments after birth.

children are sexual beings and they learn about sex from what we tell them and how we react to things.

Usually before adolesence erections just sort of happen here and there and aren''t in response to a seeing an attractive woman. He may just not have known what to say and just said that, or he''s heard about things like that somewhere. However, many of theimages one sees on TV are extremly sexual. Sex is used to sell pretty much everything. So its quite possible that something did make him feel a bit turned on.

No, you probably don''t need to be worried, just be sure that you answer his questions with enough information from his age. Remember, if he doesn''t get the facts from you, he''ll get them from his friends - and they may be completely wrong.

Those who work with children and sex (psychologist who specialise in the field) tell us that the children most likely to resist peer pressure to have sex at a young age and to have self respect for their own bodies and those of others are those who have been kept informed with accurate informaiton by their parents from a very young age.
