As anyone ever had an issue with a child touch another child in the private areas and if so how did you handle it? My son seems to know it is wrong but has done it twice now asking them to pull down their pants touch them and then he does the same and asks them to touch him. I am ashamed as you can say.

he is 5. this is the second time it has happened. i had the talk with him the first time it happened and explained to him it is wrong. this time I have grounded him from a bunch of stuff and did the talk again. I don't know where to go with this. I am thinking of calling a counselor. I can't lose my sitter because of this and I am sure the other parents are pissed with me.

how old is your son? How have you explained that it's not ok? If he's still quite young it's pretty natural to be curious, but telling him that it's ok for him to touch himself when he's in his bedroom but not ok to touch others might help. privates need to be private.
