For me personally, I would be upset. I am fine with the other girl knowing what she knows and in whatever terms she knows it in. What I do take exception to is that she is sharing her version with my child. As a parent, this is one of those topics that I feel it is important to highlight/stress how it is private and not something we go around talking about with anyone (at least in my own experience- I'm not sitting around talking about sex with my parents or my next door neighbor), just as our vaginas or penises are private. If a five year old wanted to show my kid her vagina because she and her mom had talked about it, I'd be upset because just as act itself is private, so is the actual body part. I have no problem with my kids or the other lady's knowing the facts, but even at five there is an understanding that certain things are private/special/whathave you that should be only discussed/shared with mom and dad.
