Well in all honesty I would incourage him not to and talk to him about how it might hurt him but I wouldnt be so upset about it that I forcibly stopped him from doing it. Right now ds just sticks his finger in there but I am sure a time will come when he does more than that and as long as he isnt putting something in there that will make him sick or do major damage I am just going to turn a blind eye.<br><br>
I do know that if he does hurt his self then he wont do it anymore. Kids wont do stuff that hurts them more than once usually.

Ds stuck a blue marker in there once. It looked almost like gangrene after it started fading <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
No, seriously, he stuck all sorts of things in there and never hurt himself. Silly boys.

Sorry, a little intactivist humor, I couldn't help myself.<br><br><br>
Well, I guess it is a convienient way to carry things when you're not wearing pants.<br>
What about trying some cotton underpants? That way he's not in a dipe, but out of sight out of mind right?<br>
My son is a lot less likely to pee outside the potty when he is wearing underpants. Just a suggestion, G/L.

Culture sustains us, culture restricts us. I know as a mother you want to be careful with him, but generally its him exploring his body and is a natural, and instinctual process. As long as he is not getting chemicals up there, or anything sharp or pointy, it should be fine. I just keep an eye on him like you normally do and make sure its nothing that is small enough to get stuck somewhere either.

I'll tell you I'm intact and as a kid, I use to stick things under my foreskin. I could fit the long tubular cap of a Crayola marker under there. I was 8 or so and curious. Obviously it's probably not a good idea to encourage him sticking things under there, but I had the judgement to know not to stick sharp things like toothpicks under there. lol I forget what else I stuck under there. A marble... a crock (a large marble, though the term "crock" might be a Canadian term? it's what we called them in the '80s shooting marbles in the playground).

Little girls sometimes put things in their vaginas too...it's just kids exploring and playing...I think I'd tell him he should be careful and ask him not to but I wouldn't physically try to stop him either.

Well, I guess I'd stop my child from sticking stuff up his nose, so I'd probably stop him from stuffing things into his foreskin, too. I think I'm glad that he's sooooo not retractible yet. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I really don't remember either of my boys sticking things in their foreskins, but I read on another board once, about a boy squeezing tooth paste up inside his!<br><br>
