"There's nothing awkward about it at all. In fact, you created the total opposite. I think it's the attitude we all wish we had with our dads."

"Thanks for the story. Made me laugh. You raise some good points, too. Like you, I think this world has a screwed up view of things. Why must we be afraid of that which is natural, and innocent?"

Elliott George replied to Joseph Robert's discussion Awkward circumstance with my son
"This is a great story. A boy should be able to speak to his father about things like this. You really handled a surprising situation with grace and helped your son avoid having feelings of shame or confusion over a natural male function."
