    My 6 yr old son wrote "Cloe I hump hr and kiss hr boobs" in what he called his diary. I have no idea how to approach him with this yet. I need advice on if this is normal behavior or is there a problem?

    I would have a conversation with him - - like where did he hear the word "hump", and what does he think it means.

    To your knowledge has he seen someone kissing boobs?

    Does he have older siblings, or go somewhere where he may have seen this type of behavior?

    I don't know if I'd classify it as a problem yet.....just depends on where he was exposed to this type of talk and behaviors.

    I would just have a "matter of fact" discussion, and see what he is willing to open up about, then you'll know how serious to take it.

    Take care!

    Thanks Kathleen. I did do the" matter of fact" discussion last night. It went ok, he was defensive of course. I just told him he wasn't in trouble and I wasn't mad at him. I asked him where he learned the word "hump", he wouldn't say. I will keep a close watch on him. He does have interaction with older boys in the day camp and after school program he is in.

    Thanks Again
