I found it a shame that she was second guessing herself.

I found this article to be very strange, actually. Maybe I missed the last part of it, but did she ever answer WHY he didn't like his foreskin? Also, I can not imagine a 4 year old actually saying something like that - it seems very random to me.

Also, kids say silly things all of the time. My kid's have said they don't like their hair, the size of their feet, or the spaces between their teeth. Oh well, that's your body...

I thought the article was poorly written, and left the reader thinking, "WHAT???" Perhaps it was poorly edited.

It appears to be a work of fiction written to support circumcision using “backdoor arguments” . It’s unlikely that a small child would want to be circumcised, as any mention of genital cutting would make any male child cringe (whether they are circumcised or intact) .

I found the comments most interesting. Lots of support for keeping boys intact.
