How do I go about discouraging my daughter from being naughty in class?

My daughter has gotten in trouble twice at school for drawing male genitalia and for pointing out genitalia in a book in class and showing classmates. How do I discourage this behavior?

I'd be more interested in why she was doing this. How old? That makes a difference in how you respond.

Is this to get attention? Is it working?

Is she attempting to tell you something you need to know?

Maybe you and your daughter need to sit down with a book and look at some pictures together, talk about the topic of sex, sexuality, reproduction ... again based on her age

Every behavior has a function, is there to get a need met. Figure out her need with this behavior and you will know how to respond ....

Make sure she knows she is not ... wrong, don't nothing bad. It is okay to have question, to want to know, to talk about .... there is just a place and time

And be open, willing to listen, make it safe for her to talk if indeed she has something she needs to tell you
