I have a 2 1/2 year old who recently i caught humping her stuffed doll. when i asked her where she learned that she told me her older cousin was doing that to her. I have caught that same cousin doing that to her when she was 1. I told her not to do that and told her mom to talk to her....now my daughter is doing it to other children ...what can i do

Do not leave the cousin alone with your daughter. Eventually she will stop doing it. The older cousin (depending on her age) may not even realize the motion she was mimicing. It sounds like it was innocent, and your best bet is to pay it no mind, and try distraction and redirection when she starts. You don't however want to make her feel as if what she was doing was dirty. It will make her feel like she is bad and likely cause self esteem problems. Unless you suspect deeper problems with the cousin I would take it not further than that.
