I got butt slapped by 4 yr old boy today.

I had my friends family over for dinner. While kids were running around and having fun, WHAM, it happened. Is it really a boy thing??? I was quite shocked. Do your boys do that?

  • He was probably just being silly, a kid thing more than a boy thing. If he were closer to 10 I'd be concerned.

  • Man I just HATE when that happens. I think it's totally inappropriate. I have no sons, so I really don't know how to handle it. But many of the parents I've seen just over look it and I don't approve.

  • yeah, it happens. If he was older I would be concerned, but at 4 not so much. My son used to do that when he walked past me, my mom and his favorite preschool teacher.

  • Oh for Gawd's sake, he's 4 yrs old, he doesn't know your butt from your elbow. It's not all about sex. It's not anything about sex to a 4 yr old, grow up.

  • My friend's son does this. Its not so much that he is hitting me on the butt, but that he is hitting me. Period. Children should not be hitting other people, and a four year old is old enough to understand that.
