If a 7 alomst 8 year old boy touches a 4 almost 5 year old boys penis is it sexual abuse or normal kid stuff? Is the 7 old enough to know better?

If a 7 alomst 8 year old boy touches a 4 almost 5 year old boys penis is it sexual abuse or normal kid stuff? Is the 7 old enough to know better?

I call abusive: Such interaction between age equivalent kids is "exploration" & i can accept as much as 2 years age difference into that idea. Beyond that and specifically for the 7-8 yo who is old enough to know right from wrong on these issues it is abuse & often reveals a past abuse of the older kid.Size & intimidation is also an issue when the 60 lb 7-8 yo is doing this with a 40+lb 4-5 yo. ...Read more

Sleep hygeine: While it is not at all unusual for babies and infants to fight sleep, you still should work with them to establish a sleep routine and expectations about their sleep. What they learn about sleep now will likely affect their sleep habits for a lifetime. Especially at end of day, have a very specific routine to prepare for bed, then no tv, movies, etc to coerce sleep. Quiet room, quiet sleep! ...Read more
