Q:

Is it normal for my five year old to play with babydolls between her legs?

Her pants were down but had panties on and I asked her if sumbody touched or showed her that and she said no.

What the Expert Says:

It is normal for a five year old to be curious about her genitals and the feelings they produce. However, if the behavior seems odd or inappropriate for her level of knowledge and behavior, speak with your pediatrician about the next steps.  Explain to your daughter that playing with dolls is "clothes on" behavior.  Don't be judgemental, but keep your ears open for what may be an outside influence.
