    As previous posters have said, it is not normal and I would definitely be seeking professional help (GP, paediatrician, child psychologist, etc). I'm quite disturbed that your fiancé thinks this is normal. I hope it's just something she saw accidentally and is mimicking it, and nothing more sinister. Please keep us updated.

    From what I understand, in certain circumstances and ways, girls touching themselves can be considered normal and a means of discovering their body. But reproducing sexual acts is a bit too much. If you are certain it's not something innocent that you are perceiving with adult views (I.e sometimes my 6 yo tries to ride my 4yo like a horse and it can look really bad but they are literally just playing horsey) then I would try to get into it further with doctors etc.
    As someone who made her Barbie do pretty disgusting stuff at 8yo, I can totally vouch for the "they learned it from somewhere" attitude.

    She's with us 50/50 and with her mom the other half. I don't think the acting out is normal but masturbation is. We have talked to her mom and she says she's never seen anything at her house. There's absolutely no way she's seen it here as we have a lock on my lap top and I do not allow them on it anyways. This is 100% initiated by her and my son is usually calling for my help which is how I've discovered the acts thus far. I just needed an outside opinion on if I should be concerned as I'll be stepping over boundaries since it's against my fiances consent. I would hate to of jumped to conclusions for nothing. Thanks all!

    Hi OP, from what you've described her behaviour falls into problematic sexualised behaviour and your fiancée (or you) should either take her to the GP or call parent line/Life line for help.
    I'm a little surprised about your fiancées opinion but I'm glad you're taking it seriously as these things don't tend to go away on their own. I've enclosed a Traffic Light guide that's commonly used by teachers/health professionals/child protection workers etc in identifying issues in young children and deciphering what's normal/not normal. Maybe you can show him this so he can realise the seriousness of it.
    Maybe dad can ask her where she has seen this to get more info?

    Good on your son for coming forward to tell you this has been going on. Please encourage him to keep doing so.

    I would be a bit concerned, exploration is normal but acting out is not. Can you try calling the $3xual assault line in your state? (not saying she has been, but they can help ypi oidentify it

    Which sexual acts do you mean?
    Yes! There is a big difference between mimicking some thrust moves from a Beyoncé video and mimicking in detail a specific sexual act.
