Curious 4 Year Old

I have a 4 year old son. Today at school, he lifted up a little girl's shirt. No touching other than the shirt being lifted was done. This happened at a preschool. This is normal behavior, correct? I am looking for ways to prevent this from happening again. Thanks.

I feel your pain. my daughter is also very curious about her body and others. I find success in telling her it is not acceptable behavior (in so many words) and that her body is private and so are other peoples. Then drop it. making a big deal out of it only makes them more curious. but the basic prinicple must be understood. No one has the right to look, incuding her!
