Hi, I'm new here. I'm the mom to a 4yo boy and 3yo girl.
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of good books on raising boys. My ds is a super duper handfull. I almost considered having him evalulated for a disability like adhd or something, but went with the advice that he is much too young to have to go through that when there is a good chance he's fine.
My concern is that handling things with boys can be so sensitive - I don't want him to be desensitized and become uncaring, but also don't want him to turn into a big bully. I feel like there is such a fine line when you deal with a boy.
Also - what's up with the obsession with his penis?! Is that normal? That is also such a sensitive thing - I don't want him to be ashamed of himself - but I certainly don't want him walking around pulling the darn thing out all the time!!!
Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated.
THanks so much!
