  • Yes, this is totally normal. She's in the self discovery phase. Up until now she really didn't have any idea that she had any of these parts. She's really too young for any specific explaining, but just make sure she knows that she shouldn't let anyone else touch her like that and that she shouldn't put her hands down her pants in private. When she gets older and as she asks questions, you can answer them age appropriately.
