What's normal and how to weather the changes ahead when your child is discovering his or her body
Get the Babysitter on Board
Kids need consistency, and babysitters and daycare providers should be aware of special rules we make for our kids. This kind of touch-feely behavior is no exception. If you’ve noticed that your son always touches himself at nap time, let the people at his daycare center know. Talk to them about it, explain how you handle it, and ask them to keep to the same course of action. If bringing her favorite doll to the park keeps your young daughter from pulling her dress up over her head, then let the babysitter know that this particular doll should come with them on all of their outings.
