Q.

Son - 4 years old erection

Hi there

Please help! My son says that when he sees ladies in bikinis, his " pee-pee goes up" 
Is this normal for a 4 year old?

Thanks

Your son is indeed very young to make a remark like this.Difficult as it may be to believe his erection is very unlikely to be due to sexual stimulation at his age. Don't make a fuss about this. Try to ignore his remark and behaviour and relax about this, difficult as it may be to do so.Try to divert his attention onto something else. If his behaviour continues ask a child psychologist to see him.
