I really need some help here! My daughter has been putting her hand between her legs for some time. She is now 5 (almost 6) in kindergarten. I have rec'd calls from the school nurse and the teacher about her doing this. They have not shaming her at school, I've asked them to quietly correct her and they've been good about doing that. I've explained to her that this is not something to do in public. When I see her doing it I just say "hand" or "no hand" and she realizes what she's doing and stops. But the next moment she's back to doing it again. I assure the school that there are no health/molestation issues. I do not want her to feel shameful about her body, but we need her to stop doing this. It is embarrassing in public and I don't want her to made fun of at school. We have talked with her time after time about how this is inappropriate in public or in front of other people. Honestly, I have no problem if she wants to go to her room alone. But at this point nothing we've said is making a difference in curbing this behavior. It's like she's not even aware she's doing it at times. What options are there? Has anyone else gone through this? Any advice is very, very much appreciated!
