    OK. He won't be able to enter into a discussion regarding this issue. If he knows his responsibilities, all he could do is sit there and say nothing while KG tells all about this kid, he says thanks for your time, and they go along their way. Is that what she's expecting? KG, what are you expecting?
    And what kind of "keeping an eye on" do you think is needed here? Someone can't follow him around every second of the school day.

    True however they don't work in Kimberly's town, they don't know how well resources the local child protection office is etc etc. They can say what they think may happen... But when it comes down to it I would not hold back from doing something to protect my child based on 50-50 advice from strangers online who don't live in the area in question.

    Yep! If the whole community is talking about it, I don't know why the principal would be the only one who didn't know.

    I intend to be brief with the principal simply stating that I wish to advise him of a sexual assault at named school and that child is enrolled to start at this school next year and due to the nature of the incident it is in everyone's best interest that he is made aware as named child will need to be closely monitored. Depending how the conversation goes I will go into the details of the incident. I am thinking it will go well, the principal knows me well enough to know I am not a troublemaker causing trouble I am simply a concerned parent.
    Is that all you wanted? For us all to come on and agree with you? You see yourself as a concerned parent but given that it is not your child and quite frankly has nothing to do with you then you're aren't just being a concerned parent, you are being gossipy and interfering in a situation that at this current time has no impact on you. Given light of what's happened the other boy may not even be accepted, no one knows what is going to pan out, leave it to the authorities to deal with and be the support your friend needs.

    Yes. But there are two issues at stake here. I'm going to put words in your mouth here based on your posts on this thread and suggest that you would consider the little boy to have forfeited his rights to privacy, sensitivity and confidentiality when he assaulted another girl? Sorry if I'm wrong on that. I don't think he has.

    I known KG has said that the mother of the girl has given permission for the event to be disclosed at the new school. Who gave permission on his behalf?

    Whenever we have students with sensitive issues transfer schools we make contact with the new school and discuss this. It's our job, not the job of any onlookers.

    Educating your own children in protective behaviours is the most appropriate response here.

    It is sexual assault in the eyes of the law. Because he is under 10years old he cannot be charged. If he was 10 years old and 1 day he would be charged and placed under the care of the juvenile justice team.

    So why even start the thread? What was the point? To drag some six year old child through the mud on a public forum?

    I'm going to continue to disagree with you on this, putting words is CAPITAL letters isn't going to change my mind.
    Not one definition I have read of sexual assault says "XYZ is sexual assault unless the perpetrator is under ABC age."

    Oh, sorry about the capitals, I hate them here too.
    I think it's a stupid law saying a 6 year old can commit sexual assault. Yes, assault, but not sexual until the age of maybe 10+

    i didn't expect people to agree with me. Advice and discussion and to gage what others would do in this situation is what was expected, not nasty remarks and being classed as a gossiper. Obviously you have not had any experience with sexual assault of any nature being yourself or anyone close to you. If this child is going to my child's school in close proximity. (And he is going there next year, he's already been accepted, his sister goes there already) .. Like hell it has nothing to do with me.
