    I think this teacher needs to be seriously evaluated for suggesting that a 4 year old thinks of her in a sexual nature.

    I'd be fascinated to hear the aide's perspective on this one. I once had a 6-year old boy "fall" on me repeatedly. We we playing a catch-me, tag-like kind of game, but every time he came for me his hands somehow managed to find my chest. You can say he didn't know what he was doing - but the groping told a different story.

    What that story was, however, was not sexual harrassment, in my opinion, but rather a little boy who realized that men didn't have breasts and women did...and he was confused and curious about it. Rather than giving him In School Suspension...we sat down and talked about inappropriate places to touch other people and how important it was not to let adults touch you in places that you considered private.

    I am amazed that the school district didn't try this route before taking the kid out of school for a day. I wonder what else is going on here.

    Maybe you are right. In our day and age with children being subjected to many things way before there time no telling what that boy thought or saw that made this situation look so bad. How old is the aid? I mean did this kid see mom and dads porno on the tv after school? call it crazy but I'd like to think it was totally innocent, but the media and the school district and the parents involved the question is: What really happened?
