my 3 year old is always sticking her naked butt up in the air and if her sister pokes her she thinks it's funny and says "do it again, do it again!!" i don't know how to react to this? She touches herself alot too, which I know is normal... She doesn't like to keep her clothes on very much at home and is always sticking her butt up in the air and wiggling it how do i deal with these sorts of things, I have no experience with this stuff..

Sounds like it's time to start the "our bodies are private" talks. I would make sure to let her know that her body is private and that she can touch it but that no one else should be touching the private parts of her body.

I too have kids who are naked all the time. My 4.5 yo couldn't care less about her body but my 5.5 yo always has her hands on her vagina. We talk about how it's ok to touch your own body but it's not ok for anyone else to touch it. We talk about private parts and modesty etc...

no direct advice, but a good book recommendation:
Everything you never wanted your kids to know about sex (but were afraid they'd ask)
There is a whole chapter dealing with this age group, sexual play, normal childhood development etc...
