My 6 year old daughter touches herself, she has been touching herself for about a year, recently I found her using her toys to touch herself. What should I do?

Let it go for sure. I tell my kids your body is YOUR body. Nobody else can touch it if you don't want them to and no one can touch your private place but you. And only in a private place. When I find my children exploring their body I use it as a teachable moment to remind them how special their body is and how important it is that they understand it and protect it. Sexual stimulation begins in the first year, maybe at birth. It's natural and good and now is the beginning for her to learn how special her body is. But it is a little uncomfortable for us to see isn't is? ;-)
