3yo girl keeps playing and touching poop

A 3 yo I know is constantly touching and play games with poop the have any animals but it seems any time the child is out on the grass she finds touches and plays with poop, should they be worried? I know the physical problems for doing this but want  to find out why she 7th constantly doing this. Thanks for any help in advance


  • It's a phase and normal. Obviously it is harmful because of bacteria and parasites etc. 
    But it is normal. At that age a child discovers that they can "make something " and they try to figure out how their and others bodies work. It's a normal part of healthy development.  
    But ... dont let her play with animal poo.
