I am a widow with three kids, including one son. My husband passed away when our son was 3, and now he is 16. He has never had a man to have discussions about his **bleep**, and I think I have nervously avoided an important talk. Like his father, my son is not circumcised. I like to assume if he has had any issues, that he would talk to me or maybe a friend, but I have always been afraid to ask because, as a mother, I am not sure how he would react. My husband had told me that when he was 20 he had a to have a procedure where they removed his frenulum because it was too short and he could not retract his foreskin. He did this instead of getting circumcised. Before he gets any older I feel like I should ask my son if he can retract his foreskin and if he has any questions about cleaning because if he does then we can see a doctor. Can anyone offer an opinion on how or even if I should talk to him about this?
