Q.

is this normal?

Dear Prof

Is it normal for a 6 year old girl to draw a penis with a red tip on the drawing of a boy figure?

Thanks

This is unusual and it is difficult to be sure about whether your daughter's drawing is a source of concern or not.Do not make a fuss about her drawing. It would be best to take her to see a child psychologist just to be on the safe side.
