Recently, I have found my daughter playing "doctor" with other children including my son. I know this is normal behavior, but it is happening alot more frequently than it should be. We have had numerous discussions about inappropriate touching and who is allowed (or not allowed) to touch when and where, showers and potty time etc. Last night, I found her doing it again. She is 5 so I know she understand what I am telling her, but it doesn't seem to be sinking in.
This is leaving me wondering if something has happened to her. I know when I was a child, I was introduced to sexually oriented stuff really early and I acted out like this. How in the world do I find out if something has happened that I don't know about? I recently had the doctor check her vaginal area because she complains of occasional itching and burning and she saw nothing out of the ordinary so I don't believe it's anything like that.
