I am a single mom with a five year old boy. he recently started Kimdergarten and he is a young five. anyway he is really smart and polite Nd the teachers always comment on that but yesterday..out of nowhere he pulled his boy parts from the top of gis pants during reading time... i left work and had a good conversation with him and the principal and his grandpa. he seemed to understand and went back to class because the principal said it was important for him to stay at school so he doesnt think he can go home when he gets in trouble. two hours later...he did it again and she walked him to the car at pick up time and said he was suspended for a day. she asked if he cared if he was in trouble and he said no. later that night after talking to him again, i asked if he cared that he got in trouble and he said no. i asked if he knew what "cared" meant and he said no. there are a lot if things kids are learning at this time and once i explained cared he seemed to understand a little better. but i am baffled by all this. he is so little and i explained his parts are private and thats why we wear clothes etc and went back to class and did it again. i need advice from those amazing mothers out there!!
