If your son is 5-7 years old, please take advantage of this very sweet age to begin teaching him about his boy anatomy. As soon as he enters puberty, in just a few years, he will likely be less interested in learning this important information from you with each passing year.
Has your 5-7-year-old son started asking you questions about his boy anatomy? They tend to be very curious about their penis and want everyone to know about their questions. This is normal and healthy exploration on the part of your son, but make sure you answer his questions.
If your son is an adolescent and in the midst of puberty, you probably reflect back upon the days when he was 5-7 years old as being an easier time. He looked forward to being with you and when you had something important to explain to him, he wanted to hear it. It is surprising to most parents when their son makes the transition to adolescence. There is a noticeable change in his emotions, and his response to them.
Although it might be uncomfortable for mom if her young son, 5-7 years old, wants to know what’s inside his penis and why there is a hole at the end, there are some simple answers.
During the summer, our young sons, 5-7-years-old, are likely to be in situations where they are alone with people they may or may not know. This is the age to begin talks about protecting themselves from unwanted touching. This is also the age group most affected by people who want to take advantage of them. Sadly, the most likely predator might be a family member who your child knows and trusts.
