Couldn't find what you looking for?


My grandson is 5 years old and he has many erections thru the day and constantly has his hand in his pants trying to fold it and make it go down.He gets upset and i had three daughters so i do not know what to do.I believe a is larger than an average 5 year old,but i am not sure.What causes this?Is it normal?His 2 brothers never went thru this.


Hi Sarah,

At 5 he can't really control his erection.  There isn't anything wrong, some boys just have this happen often.

I think one thing that you can do is to do nothing.  Don't make a scene about.  Don't even mention it.  Don't tell him to get his hand off of it.  Just let him be.  There is no need for him to get upset.
