  • in public or alone, that is wrong! What have you shown him? WOW! This my dear is your fault, and problem, why are you okay with your 6 year old rubbing your breasts and kissing you at home even? If I knew you I would call CPS, sorry but true!

  • Well first of all the question that needs to be asked is what has this child been exposed to that he would even know this behavior or act like that. What has he seen. Looks to me like somebody needs to be a bit more careful in what they do in front of the child. And yes you need to be strict and stop it.

  • I agree with Peekalou I'd be questioning what influences he's being exposed to even want to do this behavior or think its okay. I can say my younger son had a fascinations with breasts for awhile but he would never touch me, also to point out he was 6 when I got breast implements. I think that he was more interested in how they got bigger with surgery than my actual breasts. He would stare and I had explained exactly how the procedure was done, I did let him touch the top of my breasts at one point to just stop the curiousity, and then it was done. I'd start looking at the influences around him, does he see his dad doing this, hasn't seen some kind of show where this going on...its not uncommon for children to be curious about the opposite sex but I'd say this is a bit extreme.

  • My son is 5, a few months ago he was making me uncomfortable sometimes the way he would try to lay on me or touch my leg. I think they are just curious. I just told my son that it makes me uncomfortable and that he could hug me or lay with me another way.

  • u do need to be strict but also there is a time and place for you and your husband to do that behind closed doors

  • I agree that you need to see what the root of the cause is as well as even in private at home you SHOULD NOT under ANY circumstance be allowing your 6 year old son to stick his hands in your clothes. That is just wrong.

    If his kisses on the lips are more than that of a lvoing child to a mother then you need to stop that as well.

    Counseling may be in order.

  • I think some of the peoples answers on here have gotten way too deep. Children of all ages do things in that nature. It doesn't mean that the parents have done anything in front of their child. It could simply mean they are curious. I think that is whats wrong wrong with the world today. Too many people over think things too much.

    You were quick to judge worriedmom when she never said anything about this came about. Instead of assuming she and her husband has been doing things in front of their child you should ask questions first.

    So to answer your question. I don't think it is a major concern. You don't want him to be scared to express himself nor do you want him to be scared that he will be scored by women when he gets older because you punished him for being curious. i think you should tell him it makes you uncomfortable and please not to do it again if thats how you feel. And if you are embarrassed because of what
