HAVE ANYONE WENT THREW SOMETHING LIKE THIS ARE MAYBE KNOW WHAT IT MIGHT BE? PLEASE HELP ME!!!
My first son had that same issue and I really miss him...I went with the Jim Henson method of waiting and seeing what would happen. Turns out his private area hurt due to abuse from my estranged brother. I don't mean to point any fingers but is there anyone in your neighborhood who may look at your son in an inappropriate way? I ignored the signs and my boy was taken from me in a horrific act that haunts me to this day. Have you noticed an influx in the amount of candy he has in his room or a slight limp in his walk? Thats a telltale sign of abuse. Please, act first and be proactive. I only wish I had. RIP Timmy. Miss you.
