My child is constantly masturbating throughout the day; would rather do it than play. I'm torn between telling her to stop (because it is excessive) and possibly putting some sort of complex on her, and just letting her do it all the time and be sequestered in her room. Anyone experienced this before? How did you discourage masturbation without creating issues?

She may be bored... engage her in other activities to keep her mind off it, and keep her busy doing other things. But, when she has down time just tell her to do that in private, in her own room.

as to where she's seen it/heard about it etc <<<--- or if she heard or saw it from an outside source??
It's pretty interactive, most kids just do it b/c it feels good in this age bracket (5-8) , they don't even get what it means to us.
