Today after school, my son was upset. I asked if he had a bad day. Yes, he was sent to the office. All his teachers have always said they wish they had a classroom full of kids just like him, so I was suprised to find out he'd been sent to the office. Even MORE suprised when I found out why AND that I had not been contacted about it! My son's story is that a girl made a rude gesture (finger poking the inside of her cheek repeatedly) to another little boy at school, and my son told her that it was disgusting, the other boy asked what it meant, and my son told him it meant that she wanted to put his penis in her mouth. This happened yesterday. Well, today, the other boy's mom called the school irate and my son got in trouble. I would be irate too....and I am, because come to find out, ANOTHER boy that is in Jr. High that lives in our neighborhood is the one that's been telling my son "sex stuff". I shouldn't have to have to explain to my 9 year old son what a blow job is, let alone sex itsself! My questions are....do I ask the school why the hell I wasn't involved in this discussion with my son today, and also, do I confront/inform the mother of the Jr. High boy that her son is informing my son of these things???? Also, I feel I should call the other boy's mother that MY son informed and appologize!!!! How do I do that?

The school should have let you know. I would also call the other boy's parents, apologize and explain the situation. I also have to ask, did the girl who was making these obscene gestures not get into trouble as well. Her parents really need to know, imo.
