My 7 year old son went to his friend's bday party on Sunday (yesterday) and that's when his friend kissed his penis.
My parents drop him off and he told me that his friend (Nico) kissed his penis while he was getting dressed from going swimming.
Well my dad spoke with my son about this. He told Alex, my son, how Nico shouldn't have had done that. It wasn't right. He told Alex that it was very good of him to tell an adult right away. He also told Alex kids at his age are curious and maybe that's why he did that.
So Nico's mother text me this message this morning:
"Alex told me what happened yesterday and I had a talk with Nico. He was in his room crying after Alex left, I told him that it was very inappropriate what he did and that now Alex was probably not going to be able to come over again. I also googled it and it talks about this is the age where they try to imitate adults. So I don't know if he saw a bad movie on tv or where he got it from."
So later after she got out of work she called me and pretty much told me the same thing.
I told her that kids her son's age like to experiment and sometimes those are the things that kids do.
Later on, I asked my son Alex if he would ever want to go to Nico's house again.
He told me yes because accidents happen.
My parents told me that if Alex feels comfortable enough to go to Nico's house that he still should continue to go over there.
My question is, would you, as a parent, feel comfortable enough to allow your 7 year old son to go over to his friends house even after his friend kissed your son's penis?
*and for those who may be wondering: where were the parents? Nico's father was at work and Nico's mother was out running an errand for the bday party. The mother left her 14 year old daughter in charge of the younger kids*
