Just now, it has been transferred to pediatric category.
Sorry, for the delay.In this age or preschool period, children become aware as boy or girl.He or she can try to explore their body parts.They may do it purpose fully.Environment, media like TV have a great influence here.Please do not scold him.Please try to make him understand not to do it in a mild way.He will follow your words.I hope this information will be helpful.If you have any query, please feel free to ask.If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating. Wish him healthy life.Regards.
As you know that the child can be curious.They try to understand gender identity.Erections may occur.Every child is different in their response.
It is not urgent to see his doctor immediately.During next visit, you may discuss it with his doctor too.
