So tonight my 3 year old had a small scratch on her outer vagina and i asked how it got there. She told me a child in the sandpit told her to bend over in the sandpit (fully clothed) and poked her with a stick. She said she left the area and told a carer her bottom hurt but the carer assumed she meant a rash and told her mummy might need to use cream.
I feel sick that my little girl has been hurt, worried and had a bad experience. I know it's probably mean child 'play' and I'm a bit stuck as to what to ask of childcare tomorrow in response. My DD doesn't know the child who did it (we are new to town and i doubt she would be able to identify) just that she was older, maybe a "kindy kid". I know it isn't like my DD to make up stories so I'm inclined to believe it happened as she said. Help! I feel really sick about it and scared to death thinking of my child being vulnerable. I'm unsure how these things are handled discipline wise with such young children
