Good Evening,


You can see if she has any questions and in age appropriate language explain to her that it was something a grown up woman had decided to do and that it is just a movie. Usually kids forget this kind of incidents really quick and it is the adults that are more anxious about this.

It would be important to stress to her that it is a grown up thing (because some times kids would want to recreate what they had seen w/ a peer/out of curiosity and because children learn by observation) It is more important that you keep your cool and do not make it seem as a big deal and or punish her for this.
