PEDIATRICIAN ADVISES PULLING AT 11 MONTHS OLD
Today I was watching my husband pulling our son's foreskin, his delicate
skin formed tiny tears and started bleeding. We were instructed to
do this by our pediatrician. I was mortified, we argued. That is when
I decided to look up foreskin on the internet. I came across your website,
and am very happy to have found it. We have noticed our son naturally
stretching his penis- we never knew why. Now we do.
We just want to thank you for voicing your opinions. Thank you for
reaching out to others.
Thanks for your letter, its ths sort of thing that makes my work worthwhile

So am I ---!!! natures_way.html and prevention.html are probably
the central files for reference ... your son should maybe be encouraged
to pull *forward* on his own foreskin - but maybe first just give him
a break, do nothing for a few months - let him recover -
Such yanking painful methods are frequently advised, and then the
normally gentle loving husband turns into a primitive monster. One
father maintained that his son yelped but "a bit of pain never hurt
anyone - he yowls when he goes to the dentist" - for some crazy reason
(the macho image) grown men seem to feel that inflicting pain to their
sons penis will make them better men ... I suspect this illogic wont
effect any other aspect of your husbands care, but with penis-care
he gets minus points with me.
If your son has any trouble when he's around 3 yrs. old then get
in touch again ....
