The best thing to do is keep the communication open and try not to react. In years to come around jr. high and high school you want your kids to feel comfortable to talk to you about anything they need toand to feel like you are open to be able to talk to. the more you react or shut down the less they will talk and these are really things you want them to tell you instaed of not telling you. Realize not all families are like yours. Unfortunatly some people don't set bounderies for their kids and those kids don't realize what is apporpriate to share with thier friends and what is not. If there is major concern you can always talk to the teacher about it and maybe she could talk to the other child or parents. Also when your kids are saying things remind them of your families morals and what is appropiriate and try to keep open to the conversations.

I hear you! My son is in 1st grade and I can't believe the things he'll say or do after a day at school. I wish I could be a fly on the wall. My son knows that most of these things are not to be done or said at home, but it seems ok if someone at school showed him it or told him it. It's like fighting a losing battle. I hate it.
