I don't blame you for prabably worrying, no one wants to find there child touching there privates. But by the age of 11, the child is a preteen,going through puberty and feeling a certain way. We are all sexual human beings, going through a natural process. Just talk to you child about sex and tell him/her to keep it private.
Although I understand your worry it is certainly normal. It is necessary for a child to explore and become comfortable with their body. The process is very natural, although some cultures are more accepting of it than others, particularly at the younger ages, such as in this case. So is it normal, yes. Is it good, I suppose that depends on upbringing...
