I have a 6 year old son who is intact. I know when we initially did our research on whether or not to circ. everything always said that eventually the child would start trying to retract on their own and could then be taught how to wash himself...
Well he is 6.5years now and doesn't have much interest in even attempting to pull back his foreskin, just I encourage this to see if it will retract?
I honestly hadn't even thought about it until I was speacking with a friend who has a child the same age also intact and she had made some comment about him washing himself... I then started thinking that maybe we should have discussed this before and he should be trying to pull it back. I kind of showed him how to pull it back but he said it hurt- I don't really think it did but chose not to push it.
Any advice? What should I be doing or encouraging him to do?
Thank you for any help! I really feel like I kind of let this go to long- hopefully not! :)
