  • Has her mom talked 2 her about it being inappropriate?

  • I think you need to be concerned that this child was possibly molested by someone. Children who have been molested will mimic what was done to them. I would ask questions such as why are you doing this or after it is done why did you do that? Ask the child why she thinks this is OK? I'm sorry but children do not do things like this for no reason, either someone has done it to her or she saw something her little eyes should have not seen.

  • I agree w/ JoyceTN that there's a BIG CHANCE that he/she has either been molested or has been exposed 2 adult behavior. Her mother needs 2 talk 2 her 2 find out exactly what happened or is happening bc yes children experiment & r curious but not 2 this extent. I would suggest the mother 2 get him/her 2 his/her dr. & c what they say & if they can't help (which I don't c ne reason y they wouldn't) ask them 4 a referral & get him/her in2 sum1 2 talk 2.

  • I agree with the other posters, it's alarming that this little girl would be doing this. I would definitely suspect something very wrong. This little girl needs help.
