    Touching their genital part is absolutely normal at their age.
    My son is 28months old and he also likes to touch it, i do remind him it's very shameful to touch it. Somemore, I told him "bird bird" is for peeing and not for touching. At first he still touching it without my bothered, but it gradually decreased the touching when i stop reminding him. Kids are like this, they do tremendously and purposely when you keep reminding them, they shall forget it when you don't bother them. Have a good try!

    i don't know that i would tell him to be ashamed of his penis... just that it isn't polite to touch it in front of others...

    its natural. children love exploring things. for most of your childs life his willy has been hidden inside a nappy. when he starts wearing pants he discovers it, and whats more it feels nice when he touches it. Please dont tell your child that it is dirty or shameful, this will only serve to mess him up when he is a teenager and having proper urges to touch it. Insted tell your child that it is fine, but that people dont need to see him do it. if he wants to do it he can do it in his room. But if it is more of an absent minded fiddling, just distract him. dont even mention his willy and say insted "come and play with the cars" or "draw a picture". give him something else to do with his hands!!!

    And so begins a boys love affair with his penis. My little boy is just as bad. Am a teacher and have had five year old girls doing this in class. Then it is a worry but 2 and 3 is normal. Very irritating though, I have to say.
