Okay...I'm calm despite my title. My 8 year old (very soon to be 9 year old) was dry humping himself yesterday. I acted like I didn't see it while he was doing it (I didn't want to embarrass him) and then told him that if he needed to touch his pee pee (that's still what he calls it) that he needed to go to the restroom that he shouldn't be touching his private body where people can see him do it. (note...he was on the couch in the living room while we were watching t.v.) he acted normal and calm (I don't think he was aware he was doing it) and told me that he's having problems with his pee pee. I knew what he was talking about...the morning pee hard but he's quickly approaching the age for puberty. (he's not going through it yet....he's always woke up with the morning situation....and despite his age he still is not embarrassed about being naked) But...with that being said I know that masterbating is a normal part of childhood and I don't want him to feel ashamed about it....what do I do? I spoke with my dad & brother about it yesterday to see if they wanted to talk to him about his body since they're guys. husband is not the best guy to talk to about it....believe me! Any ideas?
