Q.

Daughter masturbating

o my hat. Last night my daughter came to wake me up saying, very confused and crying, appearing very guilty- feeling, what she touches herself there and she does not know why but she likes it. I am needless to say- FREAKED out. She is 9. Is this normal... just over the weekend we got her some training bra''s seeing her breasts are delevoping... what next... how do i handle this???

Your daughter is obviously experimenting at her age. She is showing the early signs of puberty.She is not really doing anything wrong, difficult as this may be for you to accept. If you make a fuss and show that you are indeed totally freaked out you will simply reinforce her determination to continue with this new experiment. Have a girl to girl talk to her and treat her as normally as you are able to in spite of your concerns.
