Weird question?

I caught my almost 7 year old daughter "humping" our couch...she didn't see me sitting there looking at her and I think she was really "occupied"....I just told her not to do that kinda stuff.....she tried to tell me she was doing "yoga" lol.


Has anyone delt with this before? Is this normal at this age? & how do you deal with it where you don't embarass the child?

Please no bashing, she's never heard or seen the hubby and I in action. We are very discreet when we do have sex. I don't know where she could of picked this up from, or if it's something that just comes naturally.

It is natural but if it becomes a problem/obsessive talk to your ped. about it. It could be over active hormones.

I would think just let her know that what she's doing isn't wrong, but the living room is not the appropriate place and suggest her room (provided she doesn't share w/ a sibling).

Well my husband & I both sat down with her with some milk & cookies, had a talk and told her we "prefer" she didn't do that (not that it's a bad thing) but if she "COULD" just not do it. OR just don't do it where other's can see you sorta thing. & we also told her to never attempt to put anything up like toys or what not cause she could hurt herself with not even knowing it. I think things will be ok. We told her not to be embarrassed etc. : ) Thanks for the helpful suggestions.

 You also can't just brush this under the carpet. It could be someone she plays with has done something to her or something of the sort, you never know. Keep an eye on her. Talk to her more.

Since she is so young I wouldn't really get into some sex talk about it, I would just say, next time do that in private, like in your bedroom, maybe have a privacy conversation. good luck.
