Sarah : Hi there,
Sarah : There is a chance that this expensive information that you have given your young son was a bit early for him, although I understand that the situation was put upon you by finding other children doing this kind of thing. There are several issues here I think - children want to be Ike their friends and to feel that they are doing the same things, whether it is playing with a certain toy or going to the same place. So your son, having been introduced to sexual behaviour, is probably trying to keep in with his peers.
Sarah : Alongside that, he has probably been told by yourself that this is something that older people, adults do - also a bit of a red rag to a bull - if we tell them something is out of bounds, then
Sarah : Children tend to want to try it out - it's in their nature.
Sarah : I understand that you have ot exposed your son to sexual behaviour at home, but how certain can you be that he hasnt been involved with other children at school encouraging him to do similar before now? I think this would be very important to know from a parental point of view.
Sarah : Difficult for him to tell you, I guess, but important for him to be able to tell you.
