Everybody gets morning glory. No big deal.
Of course, it's an awkward situation, but I don't think you could have handled it much better.
Don't second guess this. You did what you could, and your son seems no worse for the experience.
Sounds like you handled it fine.
I think you handled the situation well by the sounds of it. You're his father so there is no need to feel awkward.
I think you handled it fine except for the whole nudity thing. Put some shorts on around the kid.
I think you handled it very well. And don't put on shorts. You are both male, no need to cover.
I am reminded of when my son was three. He came out of his bedroom naked with a an erection and was batting it with his hand. "Look Daddy! It stands up!" I said, "That's nice, but you should play with it by yourself." He said, "OK!" and ran back to his room.
Can you be my Dad?! haha
That is awesome, JR. I'm sure the initial situation was very awkward (especially seeing the look on your son's face, haha) but you handled it SO well and wow, what a blessing it turned out to be as it opened up those great and very important conversations, and at the right age, too. I'm so glad that your son really appreciated those talks. That is going to serve you both as he gets older, knowing he can talk with you about anything. And it sounds like he's a chip off of the old block with his "bigger than you" remark, haha. I love it!
You handled that situation like a champ, Davis! :D (And so did your son, haha)
You did great! You gave your son a healthy respect and an appreciation of his own manliness!
Brilliant post...you both had a laugh about something that is 100% natural and nobody ended up embarassed or feeling like they'd done something terrible.
The way you handled this is far more likely to produce a well rounded, balanced, normal young guy than reacting in another way (denial/we won't talk about it/it's dirty etc).
Even as a non-parent myself, I consider this to be good parenting. A thousand recommends for the way the situation was dealt with.
you spoke naturally and from truth
man to man
dad to son
your post was more educational to the rest of us than a question
