Q.

please advise

My son aged 4, has become very interested in girls. WE were at the chemist yesterday and he saw a lady there and he went and touched her legs. I was so shocked. What is going on, is this normal.

Sometimes while in the bath, he has an erection. He says it tickles.

Your son's behaviour is perfectly normal and has no sexual aspect to it.This is typical curiosity seen in children of this age.Don't make a fuss about his behaviour it will soon pass.Try to distract his attention when his curiosity gets the better of him.
