Is it normal for children to masturbate?

Unread postby HealthForum » Sun Mar 27, 2011 4:49 pm

I found my little 6 year old boy masturbating last night. I asked him how he learned to do this and he said he figured it out by himself. Is this possible? My husband and I recall a problem with the neighbor's kid telling him to take his pants down and telling him that it feels good to touch " down there." The other boy is about a year older. Was this molest? First I told him not to do it. Then my husband and I asked him if he could stop, and he shook his head. We told him it was inappropriate for someone his age. He asked what age would be good and we said 11 or 12. Have we begun a guilt complex? So we concluded by telling him only to masterbate at home and then to do it in his room. We were gentle with him, but I still worry that we may have been instilling grief or guilt. Is this neurotic behavior? Should I have him see a psychiatrist? What is the best approach in discussing this subject with my son?
