Sounds like you handled it well. Has this been raised on here before? I vaguely recall a similar thread - perhaps it was another user. Might be worth looking it up though.

I think you handled it really well and just wanted you to know that it is really normal as well. I actually learned in one of my child development classes in uni that little boys play with their 'bits' constantly just because it's 'there' but little girls can actually climax and get pleasure from it so that's why they do it. I think not making her feel ashamed and reiterating that it's for the bedroom is all you can really do, I don't think it will take her that long to realize it's not something to do in public or around friends.
I feel for you though, I'll never forget being a young nanny and going to change the pants for a 3 year old little boy I looked after and there was a little pitched tent, I was mortified!

You took the approach we take. Don't make them think it's wrong, but redirect them to a more suitable location.

You did the right thing, a few of
The children at pre-school engage in this behaviour especially at rest time we tell them hands off do that at home. Or nows not the time for that. It's a hard situation

I hope you don't mind me hijacking your thread OP....
My DD (6) still sleeps with me 99.9% of the time and she does this exact thing, with the same physical reactions, in her sleep during the night and when she's waking up of a morning. She actually wakes me up with her rocking and breathing. I have told her countless times that it's for a private time, only for when she's in her own room/bed. This hasn't deterred her. She was actually doing it earlier this evening while wide awake and I again told her it's a private thing. I reminded her that I don't play with my privates in front of everyone and neither should she. I don't know what else to do? I have two sons and they have never shown an interest in masturbation etc. DS1 is pre pubescent though so that's not long away.
