  • I guess you should define "constantly". It's perfectly normal every once in a while

  • Are you serious? I'm going with NO, this makes me think of sexual abuse, she should have any idea what that is or what it feels like.

    No, it really is very common. Kids explore their bodies and this is just a natural by product. Sexual abuse isn't indicated because of it, however, if child that age was mimicking intercourse (not only her role but a male role) THEN you'd be wise to be very worried.

  • Sexual abuse? Unless you suspect someone of this, I would say more than likely she has realized that it feels really good and is going overboard with it.

    Sucking fingers is soothing to children but we don't think anything of that. It also brings a pleasure.

    I would talk with her doctor and see if they have any recommendations on how to distract her from it without making it 'dirty'.

  • It is perfectly normal for kids to do this, but not constantly. My definition of constantly is all the time to the exclusion of normal everyday activities. It can be a sign of sexual abuse if done too often and the child does not have to be mimicking intercourse. Get a profession opinion
