I agree with pp and would get a second opinion. DS was slow in talking and although the doctor wasn't worried, we were. He was evaluated and has been in speech therapy since he was about 2 years old (he's 5 now). He's also been in physical and occupational therapy for about as long.
My mom worked 4p to whenever they sent her home for years. My dad worked days so we only needed a babysitter for an hour or two between the time my mom left for work and my dad came home. There were many mornings the only reason they let my mom leave was because she had to take us to school. She was able to drive for field trips, was room mother a number of times, and did crafts for both our classrooms. She started that when I was 5 and my brother was 2. She loved being able to pick us up from school because we'd tell her about our days and she was available to pick us up if we got sick at school. You can sleep when you get home untils he wakes up and take naps when she does.View Thread

When I change DS' diaper (yes, he's almost 4 and not potty trained), he'll play with his penis by pulling on the foreskin (he's not circumsized) or pushing his testicles. He does the same in the bath. I just laugh and say, in a joking voice "No, don't do that" but not really meaning it. Since he only does it when he's naked or having his diaper changed, I haven't had to worry about telling him not to do it in public bu only in his room.
Playing with yourself is completely appropriate as long as it's done in private.View Thread
