Our son is 4 1/2 (will be 5 in Jan) and talks about kissing and being naked to his girl classmates at preschool. He's very smart and curious and has told us that his little friend Sara next door (she's 7) has taught him to play boyfriend and girlfriend and has kissed him. We have told him that he's not allowed to play boyfriend/girlfriend at all with anyone, and that he wasn't allowed to kiss girls until he was a lot older. My husband and I are meeting with the head teacher of his Preschool to talk about this tonight, she says it's normal for kids this age to be curious, but is concerned that the other kids will also act out on this. He also has a 9 yr old cousin (girl) who he said showed him how to kiss. I'm freaking out, how do we handle this???? I told his teacher that other than the neighbor girl and his cousin I couldn't tell you where he is picking this up from. He doesn't watch inappropriate things on tv. Although nothing is sacred anymore and you can't even watch Wheel of Fortune without there being a Cialis for Erectile Dysfuntion commercial coming on tv. Sigh....help?
