One more thing: there are homeopathic remedies that list mastrubation in children as a rubric. You may wish to consult with a homeopath and support her in this way too.

Thanks for sharing. I will dvr.
When I gave supplements, I too mixed on a teaspoon with honey. In general, I give them cell salts which are pleasant tasting and dissolve instantly in the mouth. These help moderate moods.
