Lately she’s taken quite an interest in my body, and it makes me uncomfortable. Is her behavior—and my reaction—normal? A. Gender identity is part of natural development and small kids will become curious about not only their bodies, but the bodies of other family members, too– especially parents. Your daughter's sudden interest in your body indicates that she is making connections about the differences between her body and yours, which is an important part of development. Turn these moments into opportunities to talk about the differences between girls and boys, males and females.

It just isn’t possible—which is why so many kids this age switch over into “you don’t believe, you don’t receive” mode. By this age kids recognize that their gender is constant—girls will stay girls and boys will stay boys regardless of what they wear or how they act. This very concrete way of looking at and interpreting the world carries over into how kids view themselves: the sun is setting on the age of make-believe and the contemplation of endless possibilities for becoming a different gender or even a different species when they grow up.
