my daughter is 6 and recently started doing this. she usually does it in the living room while watching tv. i didnt want to scar her for life or make her feel akward so i never said anything. at best i tell her that it is a private thing and to do it in private but the next day shes back at it in the living room.
sooo my mom babysits her a few days per week and my daughter is now doing it at her house. my mom is outraged and says this is not normal and that something is wring with child that does this at her age. that hurt my feelings. i dont know if i should be alarmed by what my child is doing. does anyone have any input on this? i want to know first hand from experienced mothers what is "normal"...like what age do kids start and do other kids who are not punished for doing it think its perfectly fine to do it anywhere? how do i get her to do this in private without making her feel guilty/nasty?
