It's actually quite simple You tell her that you know it feels good but that it's a private activity and she should only do it when alone - either in her room or in the bathroom. Every time she starts to do it again, just remind her. no need to make her feel bad.View Thread
So she's masturbating ... this is a perfectly normal activity for a child of her age. She's discovering her body. What you need to do is ensure that she knows it's a private activity and that she should only do it in the privacy of her own room or the bathroom (with door shut, of course). No confrontation is necessary.View Thread
I suspect there may be more to it than this. What is "normal". It's perfectly normal for some women to be completely flat-chested ... just as it is for others to be buxom. Breasts usually start to grow between 10 and 14 which is why I'm surprised you're concerned. Why would a doctor (or even several) talk to you about this as a concern? What other health issues does she have?View Thread
Is this a recent thing? Has she been checked for urinary infections? Is she afraid or too shy to go to the toilet at school? Is there a reason she might be holding it in (until it's too late)?View Thread
Please take her to the doctor immediately! Do not let this child suffer any longer. Not tending to her when she's in pain for a couple of weeks can be considered neglect! Pain is a sign that something is not wrong!View Thread
I have twin daughters and they are both at different ends of the growth curve. They're 9. Léonie is 4'1" and Estelle is nearly 5'. One got the tall genes and the other the short ones. Both are perfectly proportional for their heights. Léonie is also a big eater - we have wondered if she didn't have hollow legs because we really don't know where she puts it I don't worry about it - we have a great variation in sizes in the family and, as long as our doc doesn't seem worried and as long as they're healthy their heights don't matter to me.View Thread
Honestly, if I were you I'd avoid giving him lectures on how to raise his children. He has his style and you have yours. He's doing nothing wrong - he just does things differently from you, that's all, whether it's cartoons in the morning (so he can have peace getting ready) or helping them pick out their clothes. And as for the shower - many families have no problem with nudity. You clearly are not comfortable with nudity but you don't have to participate.
Please, please stop interfering with his parenting style. I realize you've only just realized that things were like this but trying to dictate to someone how to raise their children can seriously damage, or even destroy, a relationship.View Thread
