My 8 year old son has complained that he has his penis erected frequently and he find it uncomfortable.
We have no ideas why. It did not happen during TV time (just in case, there may be some scenes) nor some hugs from us or so..
Can you enlighten us on this?
To reassure yourself that you are 'covering the bases', mention this to his pediatrician. Having said that, it is very normal for boys of any age to experience erections. It is important to reassure your son about this. As adults we often tend to associate erections with sexual arousal, but in young children the sexual aspect is not at all significant.
