Hi - I am Sandra from new jersey and I just joined because I googled an issue that has been bothering me and this site came up. My daughter has been playing with her navel ever since she was a baby and I have been trying to get her to stop unsuccessfully. My biggest fear was that she would start kindergarten and still be doing this and alas it happened today. She started school 2 weeks ago and today the teacher sent her home with a note that said she keeps raising her uniform up and exposing her underwear. I know she does this to get to her navel and I do not want her to labeled because of this. She will be wearing shorts under her uniform to school from here on but more importantly how do I get her to stop this habit? I was told all along she will grow out of it but that does not seem to be happening and seeing as she is in a private catholic school and her teacher is already complaining about it I do not want this to cause any problems for her in school. She will be 6 in February.
