Wonderful.  Aren't kids fun.  

I knew a group of little boys who developed a backyard club.  The club rules were posted on the treehouse door.  One of the rules was "No picking butts."

I guess kids do it, but I wouldn't take a philosophical attitude about it if it were my son.  I'd teach him about washing his hands and fecal contamination, and I would also get him on a vitamin and mineral supplement every day, in case he's got a craving for some trace mineral and finds it satisfying to do this for that reason.

Bleah, good luck.
