While helping my daughter with a report for school I came across some doodling that was very detailed verbally and visually of sex acts.I know my daughter's handwriting and how she draws people, this was not hers.I recognized the handwriting immediately and asked my daughter to confirm my suspician. My daughter was very upset and tried to tell me she did not know who made the drawings but finally admitted I was right.She tried hard to hide the identity and as she was crying she kept saying she didn't want her friend to get in trouble.My daughter is 8 and her friend is 10.
My gut reaction was, "that child will never spend the night at my house again." but I knew this was not the answer.I am very good friends with the mom who has told me about other instances which were blamed on someone else's child exposing her child to bad behavior like this.To me this is the elementary school version of sexting. Am I wrong?Advice please.
