I caught my five year old girl with a doll between her legs. Is that normal curiosity?
I asked her where she seen that and she said nowhere. I asked did someone show u that and she said no. she was crying talking to me and I asked why she was crying and she said she scared she is going to get in trouble.
You handled it very well. It is always important to question behavior that seems inappropriate for the age. At five, curiosity is normal. If there are any remaining questions, ask your pediatrician to intervene.
