By Guest idrn , May 8, in General Banter. If we've finally reached the stage in the evolution of human society where this is socially acceptable, I for one could not be happier. I have what would probably qualify as a nervous tic of touching my wang through my pants.

Question: My seven-year-old son has got into the habit of putting his hands down his pants and leaving them there. He tends to do it while watching TV and it seems purely a comfort thing. I tell him to stop and he takes his hands away but then a few minutes later he puts them back. This seems a bit worrying that he is doing it when he is outside the home and in public. I was also quite embarrassed when both the teacher and childminder had noticed. Are there any things I can do to help him stop and to break this habit? Answer: Lots of children and adults develop sensory habits which they use as a means to comfort or distract themselves.
Q: My daughter 5 has a habit of putting her hand down her pants, even when other people are around. Often, it's when she's engrossed in TV or something, and she doesn't even seem aware of it. I don't want to give her hang-ups by telling her off, but it's embarrassing, and a bit of a worry in public when you do not know how others are reacting especially potential paedophiles. I've also noticed that she seems a bit sore down there at times. How should I handle this? AThis is one of those situations that need to be handled carefully. Children love touch and are completely uninhibited. If something feels nice, they will do it. They haven't learnt about social norms, taboos, or shame.
Thank you, Liz, for your very kind words and encouragement. I appreciate your honest, and I really like the way you phrased things, particularly this sentence: Thank you for your comments. Send them to beautiful places and request photos of specific statues. The point is that he should ASK her if this is true for her. And as many posters stated, it is something that needs to be seriously discussed with your potential partner.
