a couple of weeks ago my boyfriend's 4 and a half year old daughter came over (she's with us every other weekend). We have a play room is the basement and let the kids go down and play all the time. One of us is usually down there with them, however, my boyfriend was working that saturday and I just had to throw in a load of laundry. When I returned back downstairs my boyfriends daughters pants where off and my 3 and a half year old son was trying to SMELL her "peaches" they were both laughing like it was funny until I completely freaked out, I then sat them down and told them that was inappropriate and that their private spots were for no one else but themselves. She then went home and told her mom, my boyfriends ex. Who then came to me calling my 3 year old child a molester, I know it was inappropriate but the reason he was smelling it vs anything else is because he clearly doesn't have an understanding of what it actually is, its just different. Kids are very curious. What my question is, is a 3 year old really capable of molestation and I should be dealing with this a lot more seriously or is his ex really being as dramatic as I think she is?
