something happened to DS today that is something I never even thought would happen and he asked a question that completely caught me off guard.
My 8 year old DS came back from a BBQ at a park with some friends. He and another boy used the restroom and thats where things got weird. DS is circumcised, and the other boy was not. DS had never seen "the other kind" before and asked his freind about it. DS's friend told him that DS's thing had been cut, but his parents (DS's friend) loved him so much that they wouldnt allow anyone to hurt his.
When DS got home, he asked me about this, and I really wasn't quite sure what to say or how to anwer. I never really expected this question, and am actually a little upset another kid would impy we didn't love DS (although I am assuming the other boy got this at home from his parents).
Has anyone else dealt with this? Does your DS know if he is/is not circumcised? What age was he told or did he find out? And, how many boys actually are circumcised/uncircumcised?
Sorry for a long, rambling post, but I'm not really sure how to answer DS's question or how to deal with this.
