I am watching a good friends child today b/c he got in a fight yesterday at the YMCA and he wasnt allowed to go on the field trip they had planned today. He is 7 and my DS1 is 3. They have always been pals but about a year and a half ago i started noticing they kid being a bad influence and so i have insisted that I be around whenever they play. and I dont allow them to be alone together. This kid is EXTREMEly disrespectful to his mother but is terrified of his step father (there is no abuse, he is just stern and the only one who disciplines him) So... today he was sitting on the couch across the room from me and my 3 yr old was next to him. He was reading a book and i heard him whispering "look at this Jojo" so i looked over there and he was holding the book in front of his pants. It looked like he was exposing himself so i got up and took the 4 steps over there. The kid quickly sat up. so i asked what he was doing, he said he was showing my son the picture. I was at a loss. So waited until my sone went to his room to play and asked thekid again what he was doing. He got quiet and then tried to mae something up. I asked him flat out "did you pull down your pants?" he got quiet and avoided eye contact. So i asked him calmly to give me a yes or no. He kind of whined a "yeah" and then said "but i didnt show him anything" I said to him " those parts of your bod are only for you, it is very important that you keep them to yourself, no one else should see them" He nodded and i reiterated my point again. so...
did i handle this right? should i talk to his parents, what do i say? should i have my hubby talk to his dad, or should i talk to his mom? i feel a little sick to my stomach, i wasnt prepared for this today...
