Okay I have a good one, What do you do when your 8 year old boy exposes himself on the playground on a dare and gets sent home from school for the day???

He is going to get teased. I am already getting calls from other moms. The boys that dared him are denying it. And he is embarrased.

What do I do, how do I handle this?

I actually can't believe other mum's are ringing you! just tell them you and the school have addressed and it won't happen again.

Remind him those things are not for flashing and if he dose out like this again he's in big trouble the fact he's embarrassed and the stick he's gonna get a school says to me he's learnt his lesson the hard way, stress a little about not acting the fool cos people dare you to and look how quick the others soon denied it to save there own skin. Hopefully the other kids will soon move on and not tease him to much. You will laugh about this in years to come ( it is a bit funny ;)

Laugh my head off in private and then let him know if he ever does it again I'm going to buy him some iron underwear that he'll never take off. lol ;)

He's 8. He's definitely old enough to know better and taking a dare? Well, that's a good lesson for him to not cave to peer pressure. I think the embarrassment would be punishment enough for this time (hoping and assuming it never happens again).

I, too, can't believe other mothers are calling you over this. Just let them know that you've talked to your son and the school has handled it.
