See for me, it can be an opportunity for an offender to have a quick 'feel/touch' of a child without being caught or noticed. Whether they be female or male.
Of course not all ticklers are offenders!
I'm just being cautious and have started talking to DS about whats appropriate etc.

I wouldn't find it appropriate for a teacher to be tickling my child!

I think if the teacher is new they are trying to find a way to get the kids to like them. I wouldn't worry unless I got bad vibes from other behaviour on top of it. That is for either a male or female teacher btw. I don't know why but I pictured it as a male because our male friends are usually the ones that tickle the kids and chase them around, hold them upside down etc. That's the way they bond.

It would make me uncomfortable too regardless of gender. But then I'm in the 'I don't like tickling' camp. It can all too easily feel like a boundary violation, and yes it can disguise unwanted contact. And there's the danger of an adult imposing themselves physically on a vulnerable child who doesn't like it but feels powerless because they're involuntarily giggling. I know most people will think that's totally over thinking it, but tickling makes me really uncomfortable.
Its an intimate thing. If someone tried to tickle me as an adult I'd think get your hands off me. A teacher of adults just wouldn't do it as its obviously overly personal and inappropriate. Give kids the same respect I say.
I know most don't agree and that's okay. Its a quirk of mine. I'm anti tickling.
