5 year old masterbating.
is it normal for a 5 year old girl to say shes exercising (masterbating) prior to bed because it helps her to go to sleep?????? Should my friend be worried about sexual abuse or is this normal for this age?

It's pretty normal for kids to masturbate.  I wouldn't worry about it too much.
