my grandson is 6 yrs old and i believe he is masrerbating. i would like alittle in put on how to approach the subject with him,so not to embarrase him. But to help him to understand what he's feeling why he does it.He lives with me,and i've noticed this a couple times with his hands under the covers,this morning he saw me and got up and went out in the living room. When i came out he was in the chair with a little blanket over him doing the same thing.I aked him what he was doing, he said nothing and i could see that he was pulling up his pants under the covers..i told him i think i know what your doing and it's a natrual thing that little boys feels, and then i got stuck..i felt like dah what else can i say...please some advice...

Hmmm, Im SURe my step son does this, and his father has seen it a couple times, we noticed he was "pullin" on himself in his sleep once as well.
I think the best thing is wht youve already said, thats it natural, and Im so glad you didnt punish him or embarrass him!!!!
Maybe also say that it's inappropriate to "explore yourself" in front of other people??? or that "exploring your body is a natural thing,but...______"
I'm interested to see what others may advise, I wasnt too sure how to approach this topic with my step son who is 7. I do know that My freinds children do this as well, we all did/do at some point in our lives right?? I'll ask my friends who are also parents..

You handled the situation well. My two kids also...and I noticed it particularly around age 6. I simply said that what they were doing was fine, just that they needed to go into their bedrooms and close the door. I said it is a private thing. I also explained that their bodies belong to them and the person they may someday marry. (I know this is a bit simple and idealistic, but it seemed appropriate to say at the time.)

I agree with the last post. Masterbation is very normal. Even babies do it.

I wouldn't worry about it too much other then focusing on the fact that you do that in your own privacy, not outside, not around friends or relatives...and so on

normal, but if in excess, could be a stress releiver. Ask his pediatrician as well, it is nothing to be embarrassed about. But he is probably a very normal, curious, intelligent 6 yr. old.

Do you know how many 2 to 6 year old's mom's and dad's I've seen thru the years taking their son's hands gently away from holding their private parts in public? It is natural to explore. Babies do it. Just gently remind him this is something we do in private, not in front of company of when out shopping. You don't want him to be a teenager and feel embarrassed or shameful when he really begins to relive himself, do you? course not. Too bad they don't teach females the same. We were told it caused blindness when we were young. The Catholic kids were told their own versions we. Guilt, can really wreck havoc in an early age.
