My daughter just told me a boy touched her privates in music class and she moved his hand away.. she didn't say anything to the teacher. I am planning on going to the school tomorrow and talk to the teacher.. another kid in the class saw and told the teacher but my daughter said they weren't paying attention. so i think a should have a consultation with the parents.. what do you guys think.. the boy is probably only 5 or 6 but he should know what is appropriate and what is not.
I can tell you now the school is not going to let you talk to this boy or his parents. And they would be right. First, don't make this a bigger deal than what it is. I say that as someone who has worked with sexually abuse kids....and still do, don't scare your child by making this huge. A) either the boy had no about private parts being PRIVATE or B) Perhaps this little boy has had an incident that was inappropriate touch or play happen to him or C) there was a normal curiosity at this time - which is normal for this age. If this was my child I would talk to her about how I am so proud she told me, rehearse boundaries and private touching, and tell her I am going to talk to her teacher because it is not okay for kids to play or touch other kids' private parts. Then a hug and a smile. But if a parent makes it out like a child has been raped or asked to preform oral sex....you scare your child.
