Yesterday at my moms house we all got together for my daughters birthday party. My nephew was there (almost 3 yrs), and my brother told me that he's been taking his clothes off and running around their house. I didn't think anything of it and we were all in the dining room visiting while my girls (4 & 5) and my nephew were watching TV in the living room. My newphews mom went to check on him and saw that he was standing up on the couch naked standing right by my 4 year old showing off his penis by cupping it!! I got really mad, but didn't show it because i knew my brother would hate me. But my 5 year old is a sexual assualt victom. Not only that but i didn't want my kids knowing about just HOW boys and girls are different! especially not to find it out like that.. Should I talk to my daughters about it? ignore it? should I not have been mad?? what do you think about the situation..

You should talk to your daughters about it but getting mad no, upset yes. Kids that age really don't mean any harm and see nothing wrong with it. It's up to us as parents to teach them that it's not OK to do what he did. I would also talk to your brother and let him know your feelings but in a calm matter.
