  • that's very normal for a boy or girl that age to realize when something makes them feel good. her parents just need to make sure she starts to be aware what is decent for public.

  • It is normal but as adeline said her parents need to tell her when she is doing these things or touching herself that those things are to be done in private and not around other people and also the parents can't make it sound like what she is doing is a bad thing.

  • They're starting to feel the different feelings that, that brings. It is normal. Just as we figure out as teenagers what things bring what feelings. Kissing, sex, etc. Toddlers are no different. Their bodies are devloping and changing and they're starting to realize what it feels like and if they like it or not.

    Exactly what the ladies said above. Her parents need to let her know that, that needs to be done in private. That it's natural and it's okay for her to do it, but she needs to have alone time in her room when she does it.

  • I was doing it that early. I still do it, only I never did it like her.
