So I have a three year old who "masturbates". I'm using the word in quotes because she does it with her clothes on. She goes almost into a trance and squeezes her legs togther and uses her hands to push on her genitals outside of her clothing. She does this whenever she is tired or bored. She has been doing this since she was abou nine months old. She has never been hurt. I am always with her or my mom is. No one else has ever watched her. I thought this would have stopped by now. I'm afraid for her to start preschool and do this in front of other kids. Otherwise she is an active and normal three year old. How can I get her to stop? Or at least do this only in private? I''ve tried asking her to stop and telling her to do it it private and she says she has to do it. Thoughts?
