4 year old sexual curiosity

Questioner: ashley

Subject: curiousity or to worry

Question: i have 4 year old twins . they are a boy and girl . today my ex mother in law brought them home from spending the night with her and told me something they had done. She said she came in their bedroom and my son was looking kind cloesly to his sister girl parts. Its just weird since i have seen nothing of this nature at my house. they still sleep in the same bed , they sometimes take a bath together and have never paid each other attnetion. My question is ..is this curiosty or should i be worried. ?


Answer: Dear Ashley,

It is perfectly natural for children at this age to check out the differences in their bodies. It is just natural curiosity. Relax. It maybe time for separate beds and bedrooms.

Best wishes!
