How can i get my teen to stop being so horny?

my teen daughter is 15 she is slow for her age has the mind of a 5 year old child but she is allways horny it's driving me crazy i know shes a teen and all but it never stops everytime i turn around she is touching herself i know she has some problems but is this normal? I mean should i be worried is this a sign that something else is going on with her? I try to ask her why does she keep doing it but she just doesnt talk to me she has never really talked much but she has been talking alot less lately can she be having flash backs from wen she was abused or is she just acting out i'm not sure the phsy said she is acting out but i don't know what to think

  • Even if her mind is that was a 5 yr old her body is that of a 15 yr old. She is having the same raging hormones any other teen would. I would see about using coping skills you would on any child that was touching themselves. Tell her not to and only to do that in her room when shes alone.

  • I think it's normal. I worked in as a "special helper" in a home for the mentally disabled. Most of the women there had IQs that matched children. However they were in their 20s, 30s and 40s... These women were the same way. We would have to keep the windows blocked so they didn't flash the work men outside... It was really hard. All they know is it feels good and their hormones are going crazy. The problem is they don't know how to deal with them like an adult... You can talk to her doctor. There are drugs that will slow or stop that but I don't think I would ever use them. Otherwise, just try to get her to understand that this is only something you do when you are alone in bed.
    Good Luck!
