My stepson saga

So, I walked outside yesterday and he (10yo stepson) had found a dead decomposing rabbit in the yard. I caught him touching the dead rabbit with his foot and he only had socks on.
:-/

I tell him to get away and leave it alone. I then walk in to tell my husband what he was doing. Hubby walks out and tells him to leave it alone and tells him how gross it is to be touching it.

Later in the day, I am out planting tomato plants. I have Raymond (14 months) helping me. I'm letting him play with the soil, touch the plants, and practice tilting the watering can. As he is experiencing the watering can, he puts his mouth on the spout where the water comes out and starts licking it.

One of my other kids starts yelling, "No, mom! Don't let him lick it. Connor used it to rub on the dead rabbit after you told him to leave it alone."

Disgusting. I don't know what I am going to do with this kid. I got onto him and had to tell him that dead, rotting animals are not toys. :-/

Technically he didn't touch it.....

I always say God knew what he was doing when he didn't give me boys! Good luck!

Should have given him a stick. Kids are curious. And they will find a way to examine it. Just talk to him about it and why the rabbit is decomposing.

Kids are curious.
