My four year old daughter recently has started 'humping'?

[deleted account] ( 7 moms have responded )

About a month ago, I caught my daughter 'humping' her blanket, and spanked her for it. I've caught her twice more, and each time have spanked her and explained to her that she can't do that, that its wrong..(the spanks are more like pops). It's only been at night or nap time, and I recently found out she has done it at daycare at nap time. I know she's not seeing it as bad, but it is embarrassing. Any suggestions on why she has just started this, or on how to get her to stop?

It is NOT bad, it is NOT wrong. YOU are wrong. Talk to her about when it is appropriate.

DO NOT SPANK HER FOR THIS! I REPEAT DO NOT SPANK HER FOR THIS! It may be embarrassing, but it is natural. Let her know she does that in private in her room only, and leave her alone. You are going to make her feel like her body is bad. It feels good to her, and you are going to teach her that those feelings are wrong. If you want her to never have a normal emotions attached to sex, continue to hurt her for doing something natural. If you want her to be disgusted with herself also.

I agree with Little Miss teach her where it's appropriate in her room. If she wants to do it at nap time and bedtime then just stay out of her room during that time. She's not doing anything wrong, she's doing it because she discovered it feels good.

I am trying to help you. She is NOT doing anything wrong. You "popping" her does not make that any less of a punishment for her. Try to understand how you will effect her in the long wrong. She is NOT DOING ANYTHING WRONG! She started it because it feels good. Simple as that.

If you are putting your hand to her butt in a hard fashion, that is a spank. Dress it up anyway you like.

As I said, they are pops, not beatings or true spankings, so no I am not wrong to try and teach my child there are certain things she should not do. I posted this question to try and get suggestions on getting her to stop, or why she has started this.
