I (like a fool) let Gregory go to Dylan's to play since I had to run a few errands. I called a few hours later and his mother answered. I asked what the boys were up to and she replied "they're out in the yard." I asked "doing what?" and she said that "they were busy." I sternly asked again and she replied "they've got their pants and underwear at their knees and are humping the ground." I started to yell and she simply said that it was "natural" and that "boys their age do it all the time." WHAT KIND OF A PERSON IS SHE!?!!

Oh my word. What is that woman thinking?

I am so sorry you are dealing with someone like that. Hitting when you're upset is natural too but we don't let kids go around hitting each other.

The only advice I have is to keep the kids apart.

It's been decided that their friendship is done. This was the last straw. Greg is not happy about this but I hope that he will understand that this decision was made for the best. However, like others have stated before: I don't want to shame him into thinking that masturbation is wrong (persay), it should just be done privately.

He'll get over it and when he's older he'll understand.

It isn't something shameful or wrong it is just a private thing -- you don't go to the bathroom in the bushes unless you're camping and I'm sure she'd be upset if her son was in the backyard doing that.

I'm afraid that things have not gotten better, Dawn. Gregory has found it amusing to show random strangers his penis for no reason. I am seriously aggrivated and am feeling like there's no answer or cure for this. I don't know why Dylan had to turn my little boy into a pervert.

No Way!

It would be hard to not react yet, I honestly think he is most likely doing this to get a reaction from you. Well from you and all the people he is doing it to.

My gut reaction is telling me that I'd have another adult, male, talk to him about how doing this in public is not acceptable. Because he hasn't been listening to all the times I've told him that, I would also be tempted to have a cop friend talk to him about what could happen to him if one of these people he is doing this too decides to call the cops on him. He also needs to know he is going to lose friends and other adults are not going to want him to be around their children if this continues. He is going to end up being "that kid who use to show everyone his privates" in everyone's memories and while that might not embarrass him now it will when he is 16 and looking for a summer job/internship or wants to date a girl. I'd also let him know that it is this type of behavior that let me know that ending his friendship with that other little boy was the right one to make.
