My daughter is 3 years old and ever since I can remember she is always touching herself. As soon as her diaper would come off she would be all in it. I tried gently discouraging her but then she would hide and do it and then I tried explaining to her that she needs to do this in private and not on the kitchen floor in front of the whole family! Now it has gotten to the point where she just down right looks like an adult in the positions she is assuming to do it and I find myself getting upset ( she is only 3!) She now uses the potty and so access has become alot easier for her. Someone told me to put tabasco on her fingers but I can't bring myself to traumatizing the poor girl. Can someone please give me some advice on how to curb this very public habit?Answer Question
Do not use hot sauce on her fingers to burn her vagina, that is child abuse. Who ever said that is a total idiot! When you see her do it, make her wash her hands EVERYTIME. Stay consistent. Just say something like, please don't touch your privates if you aren't in the bathroom. Ask her if she sees you doing it or other people doing it. Do you mean she's getting into sexual positions? If that's the case, I would be a bit concerned.
