  • Beginings of masterbation. Have the sex talk! make sure she knows you love her and will listen to ANYTHING she has to say. don't tell her it's wrong or that she's bad for doing it.

  • How old is your daughter? I do agree with MoMoFu!!! Good luck, I know how it is, my third child is discovering puberty... Just remember it is very natural.

  • Ok, this is going to sound really weird, but yes, it is normal! There are children that start that as early as 1 years old! They find what feels good to them and they do what they got to do to make themselves feel better! Like us, we play with ourselves when we can't get anything, and need to get some relief! What they do when they "play" with themselves is basically them relieving themselves like when we have sex or when we play with ourselves!!! :) Good luck! Sometimes they never grow out of it! Best of luck with your daughter!!!

  • yes, that is normal, just make sure she knows that it is a private thing and dont do it in front of people. There is a really in depth answer to your question in what to expect during the toddler years. ( I was concerned too when I seen my 2 yr old do it)

  • I take it you never did that as a youngster? I'd say it's normal. I'll probably tell my girls to keep it up (not in so many words!) so they don't fall for some lame boy's "I'll go blind" story! Relax, she's just getting to know herself.

  • Yes it is normal and also safe sex! I agree to let her know to keep it private. Exploring her own body and making it feel good can help her communicate to her husband when she grows up what she enjoys. Masturbation is fun and healthy.

  • hopefully you have had the sex talk. I don't think it has anything to do with being bored! Shes exploring her body, totally normal.
