    Yes, it is disturbing, especially to me, since I'm her mother! It doesn't really matter whether it's sexual or not to her at this point. She's materbating and she shouldn't be. Obviously she doesn't understand the seriousness of what she's doing, but the question is...what do I do about it. Sexual or not, it's unacceptable behavior and I can't have her doing it all over the place! I dont' want an argument, I just want help. This is a serious, disturbing matter. It's a real problem and I'm just looking for answers.

    Thanks ryanh for understanding. I wish I could dismiss it until later. It's not that easy. She excites herself in the car and other places as well, like watching a movie or just in her bed. If I never saw it, I obviously wouldn't care. But I can't just ask her to do it in private, because that would give her permission to do it. Cassiopeia, I could tell you how I know she's doing it, but I feel it is too graphic to be shared. But, being one who masturbated at a young age, I know what she's doing. I know children touch themselves and such, but this is more than just touching and exploring. I can't ignore it when she's doing it right in front of me. I don't want to make her feel guilty about it, but I don't want to see it either. Also, I am a little worried about it happening at school.

    wingnut, I appreciate your advice and I wish that it was her just exploring her body, but being one who struggled with masterbation from a very young age, I have to say that there is definately more going on than innocent exploration. I know she doesn't understand the sexual side of things, but she is definately pursuing feeling of pleasure. This is one reason I'm so worried, is because she is so young. I wish I could just say that she's just exploring herself. That would be much easier. However, I don't believe this is the case.

    My 6-year-old daugther has been struggling with masturbation for a few years now. I have counseled, taught and helped her in every way I can think, but she still struggles with the addiction. Does anyone have any ideas of how to help her stop. I can find no answers anywhere else, because to the world, masturbation is accepted. Please help me. I'll take any advice I can get.
