Does your son do this to you?

Out of the blue my 7 year old son likes to smack my butt. Is this appropriate?
I don't mind but there are times when I am doing something and not thinking nothing about nothing and all of a sudden out of no where I get this big smack on my butt. I think my son does it more than my I ask him to stop and he says...but mommy you have a nice butt and I love you. I tell him I love you too but you scare mommy sometimes I don't expect you to do this he just laughs. I am sure he will grow out of this but when....???? I think it is cute...personally

  • Well... My kids and I play this "spanking" game. Whoever is behind the other spanks the unsuspecting person in front of them. It gets annoying at times but I can't complain. I'm the one who started the game LOL

  • Yes, my five year old has been doing this lately. Good grief! I told him to stop and he still did it to get my attention the other day (saying my name repeatedly and slapping my butt.) I made him go sit on the "naughty couch" and after we discussed it and he got up I showed him how annoying it was by TAPPING his butt GENTLY and saying his name repeatedly and asking him if he would like me to get his attention that way. He said no, and hasn't done it since.

  • I would put a stop to it. What if he were to smack his teacher's butt or another girl? It would be called sexual harrassment, not cute.

  • Maybe you should explain people's private areas again, and let him know it's not ok for him to keep doing it. I'd just explain it to him.
