Yes, if you'd read the whole thread, you'd see we cleared that up.

Omgosh.  This is so over the top and very scary to me.  I don't know if this was maybe tongue in cheek (I hope!), but I do think there are people out there who think this way.  It makes me very scared for my boys and boys in general.  I feel really sad for any boys that cross your path, mama.  :(  It sounds to me like you would really like to permanently and seriously ruin this child's life.

Should I follow up? I explained to my DD that it is unacceptable. I am concerned that she didn't tell the teacher. She has had some experiences at school that have led her to believe that telling doesn't help. She feels like they believe other people over her, or that she will get in trouble for "tattling". That is a whole different issue....

 

Do you know what actions the school took?

Also, at 8 or 9, it's getting to the stage where it also becomes a red flag for having been sexually abused. So, for this boy's well being as well as your dd, its good you told the school. It really is not something to take lightly for so many reasons.

 

I agree that it is quite possible that telling the school will help the boy out, either because there are deeper issues like molestation or just because he does need to learn healthy boundaries and that that kind of behavior could be traumatic for the other people involved.  I hope they handle it well, and while I fear that they're nut cases, they probably aren't...  I'm overly cautious about that kind of thing.

Let me take a moment to gasp and allow my eyes fall out of my head.

This "pervert" is not even 8. This is inappropriate but NORMAL behavior for this age group. Most kids have played the show-me-yours-and-I'll-show-you-mine game. Most kids are not perverts.

Seriously.

Considering I was a curious kid at that age, was put through counseling and excruciating and embarrassing exams to figure out what was "wrong" with me (conclusion: precocity!)... my heart throbs for this poor kid who sounds like he needs some guidance and extra supervision, not the label of SEX OFFENDER.

Please get a grip and keep in mind there's another child at the end of this, not a monster. greensad.gif

Wow. Settle down. Let's not forget this is a child. While it is completely unacceptable and absolutely needs to be addressed, he is still a *child.*
