masturbation in children
Is it normal for a 4 year old girl to be interested in looking at other girls private parts and touching them? She has been masturbating frequently and now this interest in other girls is worrying me.

I came on this board searching because my daughter, who is also 4, has been masturbating or "wiggling because it tickles" as she calls it when I ask her about it. I found that it is normal for this to be going on and normal for children to want to look and compare with other boys/girls. Have you talked with her about it and had the conversation of who can touch her and so forth.

I know it is strange to see our little girls doing this, I haven't even spoken to my husband about it yet because he is going to have a hard time dealing more than me. LOL
Good luck.

i came to this website because I think my 3 year old son his masterbating. but with his anus!  I also have a daughter who is 61/2 and when I ask her about her wiggling, she says the same thing 'it tickles".  She's been doing this since she was 3.  I just pretend like it's no big deal and swiftly tell her to do this by herself and I move on with what were doing.  There has been no problem at all, so don't worry, its all completely normal, now my son on the otherhand...HA!

You are ascribing adult sexual behavior to a four-year old. That is where you are wrong. She is not indulging in adult sexual behavior, but the touchy-feely curiosity of a very young child. However, you don't want her to display herself or her little friends since this could cause many problems socially. I would tell her that "ladies" don't do that. And make sure she keeps her underwear on.
