My answer was it is natural even though most religion is against it, It up to you if you feel comfortable doing it. Even though he was like "mom! I am just asking not doing". The truth is I don't know what the true answer to that question. All I know is if he decides to do it, as long he in the comfort of his room I don't want to know.

Since you have to wash his socks, you'll probably know when it happens...

I appreciate the rapport he shares with you & have the openness in approaching you for your guidance...well, there's nothing right or wrong, it's all perspective..

From he was a very small boy I always allow him to express himself, I told him there is nothing he can't tell me. I am glad though that he is not shy when it comes to telling me, things that are deemed uncomfortable.

Dear Karella, it is a natural act. Only thing is at what interval the child does it. In fact at regular interval if it is done it is a healthy act.

For me, it is a bit awkward to ask. But then, it is also a good thing that he asked you to guide him.

I think it was great that he is comfortable with you to ask. Awesome.
