  • IT's totally normal... all she knows it it feels good so then do it. Just redirect her and/or tell her that's ok in the privacy of her own room but not in the common areas of the house.

  • I agree with Crafty, It is NORMAL. Just tell her that it is okay but she can only do it in her room or the bathroom. Time to talk about privacy. Do not shame her.

  • You tell her that that is something she should only do in private. Do not tell her that it is wrong or dirty.

  • I agree it's normal. Just tell her it's something she does in private and absoutetly no shaming.
