I was teaching in a class with 18 children from 5 to 8 years old in a classroom. And there was a female child at the age of 7 rubbing her private part very fast. And she was definitely masturbating. And she had been doing it throughout almost two classes, more than 1 hour. And she didn't listen much. And she had been always lying on the chair all the time since my teaching two months ago. Because she seemed feeling very bored and tired. And I also found that she always put her hands in her pants doing something. But today, her behavior was a bit excessive with rubbing and masturbating in trying very hard to stimulate herself until at the end of the class. And I saw that the other kids just didn't care or give a glance at her. No. And maybe it was too hot today because it was summer and the air conditioner didn't cool the whole classroom down. And I was thinking, what could possibly cause her masturbating in PUBLIC. Boredom? The Cartoon Movies? Stress? And after class, I didn't talk to her about this because I didn't know what to say to her.
So, people say it is normal. But how can I assist and support her in communicating to let her do things 'properly' and don't do it in public like a classroom?
And I investigated that children, mostly for girls, they say, started exploring their private body parts as early as the age of 3. So, I am wondering, when the kids masturbate, are they masturbating towards images and pictures stored in their minds passed on/transferred from their parents? Or just physical stimulation without participating in the mind?
The whole education system is really fucked up. I am sick of teaching useless stuff to the kids to preoccupy their minds but I have to for the moment for the sake of money.
