Hi Shonnie,

Though I don't have personal experience with girls, I can say that body exploration, even of other people's is normal, and shouldn't be punished. You should, however, talk to her, and let her know that that isn't appropriate. Let her know that our bodies are special and should be kept to only ourselves. It is probably a phase, and should pass, with reinforcement of the idea that her body should not be shown to anyone but you and her. I hope this helps. Good luck.
