I'm newish to this whole "mom/stepmom" thing so any advice would be great.
I'm wondering when should a child begin to have a sense of modesty, and what is privet? My 3 1/2 year old step daughter was drawing pictures with her dad this weekend, he said he was going to draw her. She asked him to draw her bum, he said "Well no". Then she asked him to draw her 'doodie" (the word her mother has taught her for vagina). This little conversation bothers me.
My step daughter has had near pornographic images of her posted on the internet (FB). In these pictures she was completely naked (at three years old) with her hair in a ponytail mohawk around a bunch of adults who were drinking. The title of the album was "Last night drinking". Before everyone tells me to call the authorities I want to say I did. After reporting the images. Since FB removed the images and a crime lab said they were border-line, nothing was done about it.
So I guess my question is, is it normal for a child who is almost school age to have no understanding of what is supposed to be privet? Will this attitude from her mother harm her? Will she eventually learn to respect her own body and others?
