How should I stop my daughter from touching her genitals?
Q: My 4.5 years old daughter’s school teacher complained saying that my daughter was found with boys of her class fiddling with each other's genital parts. How do I solve this issue? She watches only serials like rhymes, Tom and Jerry, etc. Please suggest.
A:At this age, four plus, children become aware of the sexual differences between boys and girls. Curiosity about the sexual parts is natural. It would be better to explain that there are differences, with drawings from a science book. It is also necessary to tell her that trying to touch each other is a no! But do this gently and with some humour.
