My 2 1/2 year old boy has become extremely interested in his boy parts recently. I'm aware that a child finding his/her privates is normal and healthy, but his interest seems beyond this. This behavior seems to be mostly at bedtime when he is left alone to fall asleep. When I go to check on him he will have his pants/diaper off and he will be investigating his privates. I don't want to go into greater detail -- I'm just so shocked that such a small child is showing this interest. I don't make a big deal about it, but is this normal? I have a 7 year old daughter and she was never this interested in her privates.
