My 7-yr-old daughter was brought home from the neighbors yesterday after having been found with their 6-yr-old son in his room showing each other what makes them different. My husband and I were not too shocked, but we hadn't discussed with each other how to handle this. It was not too long ago that she came home upset because this same boy had exposed himself to her while they were playing.
We did not punish her or scold her in any way. I said it was perfectly normal to be curious but that it was still not an OK thing to do. But then we got stuck.
I feel like there is more to be said and we just can't figure out how to articulate what we'd like to say. She's a smart kid and she deserves a better explanation than what we were able to give her.
Just curious about how others have explained and/or handled similar situations because I know it happens. Thank you!!
