I am a teacher and we are mandatory reporters, I'd absolutely consider that worthy of a report. I would be asking the school if they have made a report.

Definitely think you did the right thing. As others have said though, it sounds like something that the teacher should be reporting. That behaviour from a kid that age is definitely worthy of a report as far as I'm concerned.
Of course, it could just be a kid messing around, and having heard "sexy" from adults or older siblings... but the point of HAVING to notify is that there's a record of as much as possible. 1 incident may not seem concerning, but it could be in combination with the rest of the child's history.

I find what happened to your DD horrifying OP! If it were my child I'd be wanting no more contact with that boy whatsoever and would be asking the school to put them in different classes. I also find the 'sexy' very inappropriate for children of that age.
You absolutely did the right thing telling the school - there's no way you could just let an incident like that go. I would be less concerned about what happens to the boy/family as that aspect is now for the school to handle and that's a private matter between them and the boys' family. I would be focussing on how they are going to keep your DD safe at school. Does your school have a protective behaviours program?

In regards to asking the school about being in different classes, I doubt they would given how close it is to school finishing (5th December), and dd1 will be attending a different school next year anyway. I would hope (and will request) that they are kept separate as much as possible for the remainder of the year. I can't say I have heard of a protective behaviours program?

How did you go today? So glad Sonya suggested going along. When a vulnerable little kid is being questioned about a sexual issue then they need an advocate there to comfort them and puta stop to any questions that aren't kosher.
You did the right thing. I know they can't tell you everything going on with the little boy but I would demand to know how they are going to protect your dd if the little boy stays in school.

I hope it all resolves and a strong part of me feels so bad for the little boy- yes he did the wrong thing but i cant help think that maybe he is being abused in this way and he is acting out for help... i may be way off but i just feel so sad for him and also your DD.......... I really hope that it gets sorted out..

I spoke to the teacher and told her I want to be present when dd1 speaks to the principal. She said she isnt sure when it will be, so I said just call me (the school is just up the road) and she just said she will let the principal know. Swear to god if I pick dd1 up and find out that they spoke to her without me there, heads will roll!

So just had a call from the school- apparently they dont have parents present when they speak to the kids initially, parents are only brought in if further action is taken. Like hell!

I'm glad you brought this to their attention and disappointed that more was not done. It may well be the boy is copying adults and not really have a lot of comprehension about what he is doing but if he is not embarrassed/enforced that it's inappropriate behavior then he could grow up to be a predator. You may well have saved him from that. I don't think there is necessarily abuse at home. Little boys do weird things and they are learning about life, copying and mimicking without really thinking about or knowing what it means.
