So I've caught dd with her pants down trrying to make the dog lick her bottom- THREE TIMES.

The first time seemed kinda funny and innocent - but now I'm getting worried.

My first reaction is to scream. I try to explain to her this is not nice- but I cant figure out how to get it through her head.

(I hope this is the right forum- she's gonna be 3 in December...feel free to move this)

She just screams "NO! Leave me alone!"

What should I do? How would you react?

Sorry that's a good one. Maybe she saw a dog sniffing another dog's butt?

Now if I could just get my 3 yo to stop humping the sofa cushions in front of her grandparents. I tell her she can go do it in her room but she keeps forgetting. When she does remember, she announces loudly "I'm going to my room to do my exercises"

omg--- I laughed out loud. Ok, maybe dd isn't so unusual. Maybe our girls could be friends? I knew I'd feel better if I could just hear some other stories.

My son puts himself to sleep at night by humping his blankets. At first it really got to me but then I figured it wasn't so bad as long as he doesn't do it in public (which he did in his 2 yo class at daycare for awhile.) And when ds wants to sleep in my bed, he knows better than to do anything, so it is just a comfort thing I think.

I dont want to create any shame for dd in this situation- Im glad everyone else is approaching this subject with a little humor (I wasnt sure what kind of response I'd get!)

I'm going to stop stressing about it for now, but I think I should try to dissuade her from having the dog participate, though.

Whenever my ds is naked, he tries to get the cat to sniff his penis.
Maybe it's just a stage?

I don't know why, but this made me laugh so hard.

My DD, 5, puts herself to sleep by laying on her hands and "exercising" also. I don't want her to feel ashamed about it, but I do remind her that the couch and my bed are not appropriate places for it.

I'm glad to hear that this seems to be normal. I always read about similar things in child development books, but it's good to hear about it from "real" moms, too.

oh, here's another one who's giggling. My dd will announce loudly at inopportune moments-"who wants to smell/lick my butt????!!!!" I know she would feel very one-upped by your dd. I think your solution is the perfect way to handle it.

I'm sure the dog started it! You know, she caught on to the dog's interest FWIW

This is the kind of thing my children would do--they probably have LOL.

I just insist that they stop and that no one else is allowed to touch their private parts--even dogs. I remove the dog/remove the child/simply physically end it and watch consistently. I would think putting the dog outside a logical consequence--that's what we do when the kids don't treat dogs well.




My 7yo masturbates by simply sitting on her foot--on her heel--and rocking. I don't even act as if I notice since she is so truly discreet. Now if my other 7yo would just stop sticking various toys in his bum-crack (pants on) and holding them there and saying "look mom!" I would feel that they understood the concept of keeping these things to themselves pretty well.

Oh man....these are some good examples. Kids are so blissfully innocent- they dont have all the issues and crap we have about this stuff, eh?
