Toddlers have few inhibitions when it comes to exploring their bodies. Don’t be alarmed if your child starts fondling his or her private parts.
It’s a normal phase of development. But do tell your child that private parts are private, and if he or she wants to touch, it should be done in private.
Explain about who can touch his or her private parts and why (a doctor during an examination, you when dressing or bathing your child, etc.) and that your child should let you know if someone else does or tries to.
