    My dh worked with the grandfather and we used to socialise with him and his wife when we first met them so in actual fact we know a lot about the situation currently and the situation the child came out of.

    With respect, I think some of the details given here compromise the privacy of both children.

    Mind your own business.
    I actually do know a lot about the situation of this child.

    So you wouldn't be concerned if a 6 year old that has committed an act of this nature is going to be going to your child's school? Especially considering that this boys classroom will be in the same vicinity as your child's. This child will be sharing the same playing area and the same toilets as ds2.

    I think as a parent the only involvement you should have is your personal decision as to whether or not you send your child to the school that this other child will be at.

    I think it is a horrible thing that your DS has been through but I think the principal would be derelict in his duty to discuss this or any other child with you at the prospective school. The schools and DCP will be dealing with and whilst your main concern is your DS there has to be grave concerns for the other child and where he is learning this from. I would be beside myself for my child but you have to let the system deal with this and help this other child too.

    The school and Principal will already know, you don't need to tell them. They would also be putting measures in place to protect the students and this child.

    While I fully understand you being concerned, the authorities are already involved, let them do their job.

    Of course it's ok to be concerned.
    It's not ok however to discuss this with anyone else - your children, other parents, the school.
    I'm not sure if legally you are forbidden from disclosing however it would be pretty poor form to, regardless of what you do or don't know about this child's history.
    Instead of talking about this child you could reinforce appropriate and inappropriate play with your children and the importance of speaking up.
    The principal will know what they need to.

    I will probably get slammed but what really sh*ts me no end is when people see that there are issues with children but people cannot stretch their hearts a little further to help the actual child who is displaying 'at risk behaviours'. Or they turn a blind eye. If you know the grandfather why don't you extend your hand and see what support can be offered to him and this child? This child is 6 years old and from what you have said he needs love and understanding not ostracising by being painted as 'that kid'. The one to warn your kids about, the one other parents should keep their kids away from. Yes it's important to be mindful of inappropriate behaviour but it's also important to be mindful that if the child is not being exposed to inappropriate behaviours then they will start to settle down with the right support. It's important to be inclusive of children who may have been exposed to abuse. Yes protect your children but don't paint this child in a negative light because he is 6yo. What can you possibly do that is positive to support him whilst watching out for the wellbeing of other children in your community?

    KG, no offense intended here but what exactly did you expect people to say in response to your OP? How do you think speaking with the principal will help this situation for your child or the boy?
    I have not and would not speak about this incident with other parents.

    I was wondering what others would do in this situation and hoped for helpful advice, not rudeness!

    My Friend worked for dcp and she is a foster parent of 3 children. She says that the child's file wouldn't be provided to another school as some have suggested would be the case.

    By speaking to the principal would make him aware of the situation. This child will obviously need close supervision to reduce the risk of a simular incident happening again. This is the point!

    I understand you are concerned. I would be too. I hope your friend's daughter is OK and receiving counselling or whatever she needs. Same goes for the boy. He's 6. You have to trust the authorities and the school will handle the issues this boy may have. If you don't trust the school to handle things appropriately then perhaps you should be looking into other schools.
