  • You're kidding, right? Why would a preschooler even know how to hump a stuffed toy?

  • I would explain that is not how you treat your toys. If he continues to do it, take all of them away except for one that he can sleep with. Once he shows that he knows how to treat his toys, he can earn them back.

  • This is not uncommon. I'd just ignore him until he outgrows it.

  • I'm sorry. I didn't know he was adopted, and apparently it's normal anyway--maybe I'm lucky I only had a little girl!

  • I think it's pretty normal. When my niece was 4 she would lay down face first in the middle of the living room (where ever she was, home, nana's house, my house) and put her hands down her pants, and "wiggle" No one ever told her to stop. She's 30 now, and is a normal average person. Although I'm sure she would be quite embarrassed if I reminded her of her activities.

  • I have heard of this as totally normal for both boys and girls actually. I would approach it in a calm manner if you choose to address it with him. Be sure not to shame him for it or it could cause unhealthy self confidence issues. I'm no expert, but maybe bring it up to his ped. For reassurance at your next visit.
