Schmerd1948: A paraprofessional? What the hell is that? Does he jump from a plane into the classroom? Or is this another one a them swingin' lifecoaches? Gonna teach them kids how to do it RIGHT! Goddammit.
thamike: SOMETHING MAY HAVE HAPPENED SOMEWHERE, MORE AT 11.
cold_weather_tex: I'm guessing kids playing 'I'll show you mine if you show me yours', and some of them probably having older siblings who actually know about sex, resulting in the little ones acting on what they heard. Or, some of them have access to HBO, Showtime, or Cinemax and are re-enacting things. If that's the case, I'm betting the parents aren't monitoring their input, or don't care what their kids are watching. If this results in some suspensions or worse, wow. Just, wow!CSB: My slightly sheltered nephew, while starting public school in K, got a little too curious with a fellow female in the class since it was his first time around girls. Basic, who and what are you...( like I said, sheltered), which resulted in him being reported to the counselor, and principal. AFAIK, he didn't even touch anyone, but hey, odd and curious behavior in the classroom is just that. Amusingly, the counselor, who barely passed, grade-wise, child development and a few other important courses in college, recommended psyche evals, medication, and what amounted to removal from school, in reaction to this incident. That was quite laughable and a bit disturbing, since I have family who teach and have certifications with such backgrounds in the area. Needless to say, his parents removed him from school and home-schooled for a while until throwing him into a parochial school a few years later. /end-CSBIt was quite disturbing, on several fronts, the ineptitude and over-reaction school policy has in place with regard to such incidents. Makes me consider home-schooling more and more if I ever have kids.
wambu: In Kindegarten, I frequently "played doctor" and was made to sit in time-out as punishment (it was a special red bench; I remember it well) The girls never got punished.
Rik01: Is it just me, or was that the least informative report ever made?Something happened to someone and someone got upset over a speculated incident which apparently, according to a parent, involved some degree of a theoretically sexual nature among children who are too young to have any real concept of sex itself.I recall being in kindergarten when a female classmate offered to show me hers if I showed her mine. She did and I did and I was so impressed that I promptly joined her in smearing white paste on the polished wooden floor to make it shine better.Now, the paste thing irritated the teacher.See, little girls wore mainly skirts back then, making it easier to just flip them up, pull down the panties and flash the world. Little boys tended to wear shorts with elastic waist bands. Just pull down and pop out.I guess, in today's world, that would make her and I possible sex offenders. I think we were both 5. It wouldn't matter that the objects of my interest were mainly frogs, snails, worms, Butterflies and shiny bottle caps. Plus that wonderful smelling, cool tasting kindergarten white paste.I mean, what she showed me was interesting but not that interesting. Such stuff wouldn't become that interesting for a few more years and then not a major thing until I hit puberty. The paste, at that time, was more fun.I shudder to think what a huge fuss would be raised if that happened in today's society. Plus (the horror) we were left unattended in a separate room as our mothers chatted with the teacher in another.Society needs to get a grip.
thamike: In third grade, I had a girlfriend named Jenny.
Fart_Machine: thamike: In third grade, I had a girlfriend named Jenny.What was her number?
Ima4nic8or: Typical conservative, puritan fear-mongering run amok. The behavior was almost certainly normal little kid exploration of the "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" variety.
thamike: Fart_Machine: thamike: In third grade, I had a girlfriend named Jenny.What was her number?Ha! I actually still have it. IT'S MINE.

PunGent: wambu: In Kindegarten, I frequently "played doctor"Me too.I'd have a little friend be my receptionist, and she'd re-schedule their appointments at the last minute, and then send them confusing bills two months later.
