Hi Friends,

My son is 13 years and his penis started erecting. is it right for me to talk about it directly. He always holds his penis and sleep. He feels embrased to talk about it. but it is our duty to make him understand. Can any parent advise me on how to make him understand? Should i take him to a counseller or a doctor... Or is it normal and i need not worry about it.
