Sexual activity in children?
Topic: Worst case scenario movie
June 19, 2019 / By Louiza Question:
My almost 6 year old son has just returned from his friends house and has told me that the other boy (7 years old) sucked his penis!! I asked my son if he did it to his friend, but he said no. Is this normal "exploring" for children?? Should I speak to the other child's parents? What should I do?

NO! Before you talk to this kids parents, get to know them first! This is NOT normal behavior for a 7-year-old, and for all you know, he could be molested by a family member-maybe his parents. If you tell them without knowing them much better first, it could be very bad for the boy.
I would take the sneaky approach to this and tell the school counselor exactly what your son told you. This way someone more professional can figure out tthe best way to go about the situation. And I would not let my son hang out with this boy without your eyes on them at all times. It is not the boys fault, but something taught him to do that, and now it is directly affecting your child.
I would guess he saw maybe an older sister or brother, his parents, or a movie doing this, but the worst case scenario, he's being molested or was molested. A 7-year-old of any gender should not be doing those things though. Yes occassionaly an accident happens and they see or hear something they shouldn't-hopefully it is that, but just in case, under your supervision alone can they hang out.
I would also interregate your son about it. Find out if his friend said anything to him about where he learned that. Kids talk at that age with little shame, so he may know-if he was sworn to secrecy, tell him it's okay to spill the beans if it is for his friend's sake. You have to find out the truth though. It is your responsibility as an adult and parent to find out if this boy needs help. Serious good luck to you!
Just don't freak out on your son! You don't want him thinking sex is horrible and to be ashamed of it! Make sure he knows he needs to be much older before doing anything like that again with ANYONE, but for now, don't do it. You have a very good chance of scarring him for life here! Don't freaak out about this in front of him or you could very well do that! He did nothing wrong and neither did his friend because they didn't know any better-you're not supposed tohave to have a sex talk with kids that young, so I doubt you did. But now you sort of have to go into it-how the human body is beautiful, but that sort of thing is off limits until you understand it and love someone and all that. I'm sorry this happened to you, but you can handle it. And your son will be fine, you'll be fine-just make sure his friend will be okay, too. Right now, he's the main onee I'd be freaking out for.
And it doesnn't mean either one is gay-and if they are SOMEDAY, we want our kids to be happy right-our main concern-not to demand they're heterosexual! But this doesn't mean either is gay or headed in that direction! So stop it people!!!!!!!!!

Keebler makes these great little mini graham cracker pie crusts that come in packages of six. Just right for one package of instant pudding. Pistachio is my favorite, because it tastes good, and most kids the age you're talking about seem to like things kind of odd colored. Green pudding is something novel for most of them. Just help them measure the milk correctly, and let them go to town mixing the stuff. The four year olds can do this pretty much on their own with a wire whisk and a plastic or stainless steel mixing bowl thats oversized enough to allow for their sometimes vigorous whisking technique. Then, depending on how messy you want to let them get, after they fill the pie crusts with either large tablespoons or small ladles (and yes, I've babysat two year olds that are very good with that part) you can let them top it off with canned whipped cream. Not as fun, but considerably less messy is Cool Whip. Colored sprinkles or finely chopped pistachios can be put on top as well, but in my experience, these always make more mess than anything else because they scatter easily. Plops of pudding and glops of whipped cream stick nicely to a drop cloth or one of those plastic lined paper party tablecloths (both of which I get at the dollar store). Kids can then gobble them up with plastic spoons, and you don't need any other bowls or plates because the crusts are in their own little tins.
The kids I sit always love these because they get to do it all themselves. I love it because it leaves me with only a bowl, whisk, ladle, and measuring cup to wash, and a one dollar tablecloth to roll up and pitch in the trash.
I would be thinking this other boy has been abused in some ways, its a horrible thing to say but how else would a 7 year old know about that sort of thing?
I would not be letting my kids go back there any time soon. And make sure you tell your son that its not ok to do that.
No that kind of degree of it is not normal childish discovery its border line sex offender.

Definitely talk to the other kids parents! This is not normal. If they don't know how to talk to him appropriately (he may become embarrassed or ashamed) then go to the pediatrician's office to discuss it further (that may be the best thing to do instead of confronting him about it).
Although this could be "exploring", it's not normal, he could have seen it, or made to watch it, or even been abused!
Help this child seek counseling immediately!

He is normal. Most kids his age explore sexual stuff, but aren't really gay. They won't do this kind of stuff with girls, because most kids his age are freaked out by girls. It's normal though, he's not gay, just a little curious. You can tell the other kids parent if you want.

It absolutely is not and common sense should tell you so. The other boy is being sexually abused. File a police report NOW!

omg yes you should go over there and speak with the parents because that's not all all kids are curious but it shouldn't go that far

by people, do you mean "adults"?
I think it should be included, how would they know if the adult was going to eat it themselves or being it home to a kiddo?
I agree that it can be an unnecessary temptation. However, nowadays, many fast food chains offer healthy choices. My 6 year old sister gets apple wedges instead of fries, chicken nuggets, and chocolate milk instead of soda- At Mcdonalds.
Eating fast food is fine, its choosing what to eat.
Toys are fine too, as long as kids arent going solely for the toy.
