My 6 year old son, touching inappropriate areas
« on: November 22, 2011, 02:23:44 PM »
PLEASE HELP!  I am beside myself and am not even sure how to begin this subject but here goes.  Our 6 year old likes touching his- let me say butt and even plays with his poop.  He takes showers and when we do let him take a bath, he poops in the water.  I don't know how to handle this.  We believe in corporal punishment but I am afraid if I swat him for this behavior, it might back fire.  I have tried scolding him and even tried to make him feel guilty hoping that shame might do the trick.  It keeps me awake and night and I pray that God gives him and us the wisdom we need to handle this situation.   :'(

Please, if you can offer any advice I would truly appreciate it.

We have an existing thread on problems with potty (poo) training that should offer many ideas to help.

Is it possible that he is constipated. (Don't feel as though you need to answer. ;) I have one son that when he is constipated he gets very irritated in that area and will do those sort of things. I understand how disconcerting this can be!

Hope your able to figure it out. Hugs.
