AT WHAT AGE DO LITTLE GIRLS START PLAYING WITH THEIR PRIVATE AREAS

Resolved Question:

My 5 year old is saying that her brother showed her how to play with her private area. When I told her I needed to take her to the doctors she then changed her story saying no one showed her.

Hi there.

Thank-you for posting your question.

There is no need to take her to see a Dr , this is common/normal behavior for a child this age ( and even younger) - no medical intervention is required.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
