Yup, guess I'm joining the bang wagon of 6 year olds coming home with disturbing news at school.

My friend and I are sitting at the table when my son tells me about a game the kids at school play where they show each others their privates. He giggled and said "they asked me to play but I said no way you guys are crazy and then I told my teacher." I emailed his teacher right after. I didn't give details just said I needed to talk to her about some concerning news my son came home with and asked that she please call me.

My nephew was apparently playing that "game" in Kindergarten. :/ He attempted to play that "game" with my son. He's older and came to tell us right away. My sister didn't take it seriously at all and neither did the school. My husband no longer lets him stay the night.

Sounds about the right age for that. Normally not done at school though. Normally it is done while playing with other kids in the neighborhood.

I work at dd school and we had a group of 2nd graders attempting to show each other their parts under the playground equipment. Nothing was seen, but it took an older student seeing what was going on for someone to alert the teachers. it just honestly was something we had ever thought they'd do. But the principal said it was normal for the age group, interest and all and to let the parents know. We did that and no further issues. We have since told the kids that they can't hang out under the playground for safety reasons-lol they just don't know for what kind of safety reasons.

Overreaction much?  It is a totally normal developmental situation.  Kids at that age are typically only begining to understand that there are differences between the genders....and they want to explor those differences.


'Show and Tell' or 'Playing Dr' is not the sexual expression that indicates child abuse.....it's when it goes well beyond that, to simulated sexual events (oral, manual sex, attempted PIV, or PIA ect) that we should be concerned.

Really? Seems like something more typical of a 3-4 year old, not a school aged kid.

There was much more going on than a simple I'll show you mine if you show me yours situation. This isn't the only reason he isn't allowed to stay the night either. I'm not going to go into it but I'll just say that if he grows up to be a serial killer there won't be many people in our family that will be shocked aside from my sister and her husband.
