8 yr old boy confession at dinner table about s-e-x...need advice!
At dinner time everything is shut off as its time to share and talk among the family. Last night it was my 2 yr old son, 8 yr old stepson and me. I asked him some regular questions, what did he learn at school, something funny, something sad....He told me he couldn't share the FUNNY one and I reasurred him he could tell me anything and he said its about S-E-X. I said ok. He told me a few of the kids in afterschool were playing a game where they act out what's on the card and this time it was 'doormat' so a boy laid down on the floor. Another boy came to step over him and was somehow sitting on him and my stepson said he was laughing because it looked like they were having sex. I asked some questions, 'how do you know what sex looks' like' and he responded its when 2 weiners are touching. I asked where he got that from and he couldn't really answer. We talked a little more and then I asked for another event of the day and he said a kid was annoying him so he spit in his face. I told him that was wrong and he should never act out like that. He said 'well he was annoying me.
I would love advice on whether the sex comment should be concerning or if this is normal boy behavior? I must say that last year we did have an incident with his little brother who was about 1 year oldat the time and my stepson said that in order (for my 1 yr old son) for him to pass, he needs to touch me 'here' and he pointed to his privates. We were very concerned and explained to him that no one should be touching him there nor should he be touching anyone. Those are our private parts!
I told his father last night when we were alone about the comments but we agreed that he won't bring it up to his son because it was shared around the dinner table and we don't want him to feel like he's in trouble for sharing. But now we are both know what happened and what he's thinking & can stay 'aware' of the situation.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF WE SHOULD BE CONCERNED.
