I have a 6 year old grandson that has been part of a "few" sexual type incidents with boys. And now with another 6 year old boy and the boys 4 year old sister. Touching and this last time, a few days ago...kissing the girls "private" area. What type of counselor is suggested?
kids at that age don't know it is wrong, all they know is that it feels good. sure somebody could have taught him or one of the other kids it, or could have been exposed to it from media sources, but sometimes kids discover these things on their own.
irregardless, teach him that these things should only be done with somebody he is deeply in love with. he needs to know that sexual things should only happen in dedicated monogamous relationships. don't make sexual things taboo or tell him it is wrong, for it could only make things worse, both in the short and long term.
also he needs to know he can get into big trouble if he is caught doing it.
