The best time to get him circumcised is never.  The second best time is if he is a legal adult and decides for himself.  But really, the best time is never.  :)

That was my original plan. But the more I thought about it the more I thought I don't want him to be placed in an embarrassing situation one day! (If you know what I mean lol)!

More embarrassing than having it done at 13?

What does he think about the procedure?  Have you asked him what he wants?  13 is old enough to have input into cosmetic surgery.

Umm, why? What is this "embarrassing situation" you are concerned about? That the person he falls in love with will gross out because he's in-tact? In the rare situation where he'd be showering with classmates (and I say rare because many schools don't even offer showers at PE anymore) he'd hardly be the only boy. Gosh, in our area, it's only like 40 percent who get circumcised and that number keeps falling.

 

I'm not trying to pass a moral judgement on it. I really don't care what another family chooses to do during infancy. I don't see it as mutilation or child-abuse. I do think 13 is too old to make the choice for him and frankly, I don't think at 13 is a good age to put that decision in his lap. You wouldn't let your daughter get a nose job at 13 because she doesn't like how it looks because you know that most likely, as an adult, she'll laugh at her insecurities and see those old pictures and think "gosh, I was cute... I can't believe how insecure I was then!"

I have no idea what you mean. Can you explain?
