… but how do you explain that to a 3 year old?
Ok moms of boys, I need your help.
Before I had Aaron I had no idea that pre-pubescent boys could get an erection. I have since learnt that it is entirely normal and a part of his development.
My problem is that Aaron freaks out. He tells us his ‘peepee’ (yes we call a penis a peepee, we also call it a penis it just depends on the situation) is going up (his words) and seems genuinely distressed by it. When we try explain that its ok and that it will go back to normal he gets even more upset and yells that it wont, he seems really scared that he will be stuck that way.
So, any advice on how to explain it to him, how to calm him and assure him he will be fine?
