Just a few days ago my son said "mom I like boys and girls".He said he likes boys cause they are faster, cuter,skinner, and have better hair.When i asked him about girls he said he liked them because they are pretty.He also says he wants a girlfriend.I just do not now what to say when he say he wants to have sex with boys.He also say sex with girls but more about boys.It seems like he also compares himself to other boys.

I guess you need to figure out where he's learning it from and I would keep taking him back to make sure he's not being abused by someone because that's not normal to obsess about sex at 8 regardless if it's with boys or girls.

I'd be more concerned that he's talking about wanting sex at 8.

This post doesn't surprise me the least bit.

Facts which society needs to wake up to:

. Some kids are sexually spiritually mature and years ahead of their time thus naturally seek to engage in sexual activity as part of their spiritual development as young as 6-8.

. People of any age or gender combination can fall in love and desire to have sex, and the people which says that all kids are to young to understand what love or sex is need to wake up as evolution has evolved.

. In the last 15-20 years there has been a growing trend on male children which find other male children physically appealing.

. When properly educated sex is not harmful to kids unlike DRUGS AND VIOLENCE, and it is because of societies ignorance that the US has 1 of the highest pregnancy and disease rates.

I speak from experience and observation having of been a fully sexually aware/active child by 7 whom also encountered many other boys like myself growing up.

He thinks of sex as what " mommy and daddy do in the room".Not exactly what it is.I think he is just to curious.But hopefully he benefits from therapy.

Does he even know what sex with boys is? The actual act itself, or does he only know sex as a way adults who love each other do? I think you are doing the right thing as far as finding out what HE means when HE says it, but to be totally honest with you, my husband and I had this conversation long before we had children, IF my child were gay, I would wish him/her happens and love, understanding and support. That's what I want for my children. I don't care if they are gay or straight. For you I think you are handling it properly if you are concern about his mental and physical health and it seems you are.

At extended day he is in a group of older children.He just can not grasp why he keeps thinking this way.He says he don't like boys he likes girls.When I ask him about A little girl named Erica he gets a big smile.When I ask about a li8ttle boy in his class he keeps saying he likes him because he is fast or what ever else they may be able to do better then him.So I put him in soccer to help.

That is what the doctor said and we are going to counseling to make sure nothing has happened.He says nothing did happen but it is just odd for him to change like this.

I am and I do not know what to do.I just had to a physiologist.Because he talks about it from 6 am till we go to bed.They called it obsessive thinking. I just am lost.He was to a point were he was crying because he said it hurts his head to think about it.
