  • Tell them it's not good to do.

  • They are not fondling each other they are children exploring their bodies it’s quite normal. It certainly doesn’t mean they will grow up to be gay or into incest. If you’re that concerned sit them down and explain in simple terms that there are some parts of the body that are private and encourage them to keep those parts to themselves

  • I honestly wouldnt worry about it. Its perfectly natural for kids to be curious. If it were a boy and girl I would nip in the bud but if you think about it what is the harm with boys doing it? The only reason incest is taboo is because of birth deformities but with boys there is not that possibility so really whst is the harm? Im pretty sure they will grow out of it anyway. The worst thing you can do is shame them. That will create a sense guilt and self loathing which is way more damaging than an innocent fondle. Dont make it into a problem.

  • I'd say leave it be, they are curious and learning. However we live in a society that thinks it's ok to cut off a part of a newborn's dick so what do I know.

    • Many societies have thought for a long time. Take the Jewish people, for example. I'm not defending it, though. I find it awful.

  • Touching eachother down there doesn't sound good to me. Id put a stop to it

  • Well since you can't even say the words. How are you going to talk to them about it? Don't try to get involved because you will just screw them up in the head. Just leave them alone. They are not hurting anyone.

  • Wow! I see comments above which are amazing... homophobic and all...

    Truly, they are only 7 and 9? Then they are just young boys and it means nothing bad or serious.
    However, IF you make it SEEM like it is dirty, sinful, BAD to them, then they are going to believe the same and it just leads to homophobic feelings in their own lives later on...
    The thing is, the boys will learn enough of those things in school when they are around other boys their ages and so, as a parent, let it be...
    Kids are going to be kids and learning about their bodies is a MAJOR part of such things. As brothers they will be able to grow up being close if you do not traumatize them by shaming them for their 'touching' but IF you do shame them, then it may well impact the bond as brothers that they feel...
    Now, I will say this... if they were not both boys or both girls, then it would be inappropriate at that age. However, being the same sex, it will be only natural for them to be comparing their bodies as each grows older and they begin to develop into preteens and then teens...
    Relax, parent... all is good and normal in your household and please don't allow the puritans, alarmists and homophobes in the other comments destroy it for you and your family. Best wishes.

  • It's perfectly normal. I experimented with my brothers when we were little. No one was hurt. Don't let the puritans convince you to make your children feel ashamed of their sexuality.

  • My middle brother and I are 2 years apart also. When we were about that age we did the same thing. By about 11 or 12 it stopped on it's own. I think it was just curiosity as I had started having erections and it felt good to have it touched. So dont worry there mom,itll stop on it's own and my brother and I turned out normal. Ive only killed and eaten 30 or so people and my brother has sex with anything that. Moves man woman or animal. Happy Thanksgiving. Or tuesday.
    Whatever.

  • First why are you asking total stangers on the internet about this, this is your choice as a parent, but whatever.
    They are just little boys who are playing around they don't know what they are doing.
    But hey what do I do know.
