Is it normal for siblings to have played "doctor" together when younger?
When I was around 10 and my younger sister was around 8, we had another female child (older than us both) living with us. This girl introduced a more... I dunno... "advanced" version of "playing doctor" to us (not just looking at/touching each other's lower area, but grinding, etc.)... She told us both that it was normal, and once she left, we (my sister and I) continued to think so. Eventually, a year or so later, I realized it WASN'T normal, and brought an end to it. While we both participated, I WAS the older child in the situation, and therefore, have felt guilty ever since I realized it wasn't okay. I would like to emphasize the fact that my sister and I were both in home school/isolated COMPLETELY from a normal social life while growing up. We literally only saw each other and our immediate family for seven years, hence the reason it took so long for me/us to realize it wasn't normal or okay. Once I finally found (I believe I had stumbled across something online that let me know it wasn't okay) that it wasn't as okay as this older girl led us to believe, it stopped immediately. My sister and I recently (after years) finally discussed this again to get over the past. I feel horribly guilty, angry at the girl who introduced it and told us it was normal, and angry at myself. I've done some research and found that this is a more common occurrence that I originally thought, but I still wanted to ask the general public what their views on it are/hopefully find someone with a similar story so I can stop feeling so trapped and alone because of what happened in the past. Normal, or no?
