    "He's a man-boy . Like me!" And I asked, "Where did you see his penis?" And he was like "UGH, I told you! At school!" I then again went over a talk about private parts. Should I just leave this alone? Or have dh ask him about it? The TV was on, his older sister was yelling about something, just chaos when he was telling me. He didn't seem upset or anything. My mom was WAY paranoid about this stuff and passed it on to me, so I need a reality check.

          penis to other boys in the bathroom, which is inappropriate and needs to be to examined or 2. Something else possibly something innocent like your son is just noticing the difference and looking around the bathroom at other boys bodies and noticing things . Either way I think the incident should be further examined because 3 year olds are usually clueless to this kind of thing unless it was explicitly brought to their attention in some way.
