OH MAN. I HAVE NO IDEA. I HAVE WORKED IN DAYCARE AND WE HAD KIDS WHO "PLAYED" TO GET THEMSELVES TO SLEEP. FOR DCFS REASONS, WE HAD TO MAKE THE PARETNS TAKE THEM TO THE DOC TO MAKE SURE THEY HAD NOT BEEN MESSED WITH. MOST WERE VERY NICE FAMILIES, NOTHING WAS GOING ON IN THE HOME, HAD NOT BEEN MESSED WITH. I THINK SOME KIDS ARE JUST LIKE THAT. I WOULDN'T START THINKING THE WORST THOUGH. WHO KNOWS WHAT SHE WAS DOING. DON'T WORRY UNTIL YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO WORRY ABOUT! GOOD LUCK!

I don't know how the magazine plays into it exactly, but kids are curious--about everything. And that includes their own bodies. It's normal and natural for them to explore, even to touch and find out what feels good. Don't panic!! She's normal. =)

thanks girls! i men i have seen her touch herself before but my mom told me it was normal for lil kids to do that so i didnt worry too much but when i seen her with the mag. i kinda got really worried. no one ever had watched her shes always with my she has never been exsposed to any type of sex or anything like that so i when i saw that it was like somthing you think you'd see a boy doing lol

IMO, maybe she was comparing herself to the girls in the magazine, not in a bad way, just seeing how they look compared to herself. That's what my first thought is anyway

u should watch the tyra episode with kids masturbating.. i couldnt believe it, but ALOT of kids do it and not becuase they have all been touched, just because they are curious and they have that feel good sensation just like we do. i wouldnt worry about it too much

that is what my husband said after he took a minute to compose himself lol and that does make sense since she last week touched my breast and asked mommy what is that?

lol i did see that the other day thats why when i saw her touch herself the other day i didnt freak too much, it just seems so odd that a 3yr would do that. i'm a 1st time mommy til i seen my daughter and tyra talking about it i had never heard of such a thing.

Yeah i would go with the majority that she is just learnign abotu herself and comapring. My oldest DS lieks to pinch himself.

When he was 6 I finnaly asked why...cause it feels good. I explained in yoru bedroom only not in public. Although one day I was sooo tired of saying please stop doing that around yrou friends I actually flipped and was like stop or you are going to go blind!!!  Uh, my DH is blind...The look on DS face was priceless!!! He was like OMG daddy! Leave it alone and maybe you can see again!
