a friend of mine's 3 year old son humps everything from his stuffed elephant to the floor LOL. What would cause him to do that? His mom swears he hasn't even seen anything but then why would he do it

Some kids just go through a phase of doing that. Doesn't have to mean anything.

As a child I used to 'rub' on the floor. I did it cause it felt good. His mother needs to just tell him not to do it in public.... I normally didnt unless I got intosomething and forgot where I was and later on my mother said she did it as a small child too, so did my dh and we wereall super young liekthat aroudn the time it started. The Dr. will say it's normal and once again just tell him it's something he should do in privite.

my son used to do that it's like masturbation . They say you're not suppose to discipline them for that but explain to them to take it into a private area...anyways I dont know but my ds stopped after a while..

Just wanted to add also that the child is probably doing it because it feels good to him. He's probably exploring his body that's why..

 my dd is 5 and rubs herself. I took her to the dr because she was all irritated and she gave me some cream and told me to tell her not to do it. her words were, 'just keep reinforcing you know, that that's not right....'  i just said 'ok'. but i've always thought that it was normal for kids to do and go through different stages with.....

SS started doing that at age 1.  Dr. said that's it normal, but to teach them it's a private thing and should only be done when they are in their rooms by themselves with the door closed.

I use to work in day care. I was the 3 year old teacher. This is very normal for kids to do.  I would see kids do this all the time at nap time with either their stuffed animal or blanket.

LOL!

His pediatrician will tell you that he discovered that behavior makes him feel good.

There's nothing wrong with him. He's not a sexual deviant or anything. The best thing to do would be for HIS MOTHER to tell him that is something people do in the privacy of their rooms and he needs to behave that way in his room.

You should turn a blind eye to his behavior and let his mother handle it.
