Is it normal for a 5 year old boy to act this way?

I work part-time as an after care counselor for kindergarten at an elementary and lately I've been having problems with one of the students. This boy is constantly saying things like "tell the teacher that you want to kiss her private parts" or "I want to kiss the teacher"(he says this to other students)and I've had to talk with his parents on many occasions because will sometimes grab my chest or slap my bottom. He will also sometimes grab my leg and start rubbing himself against me. I want to know if this is normal behavior for a 5 year old boy, or if perhaps this kid is being abused or something.

i have a 5 yr old son who's also kind of a perv
but nowhere near as bad as you describe this boy to be he most likely has seen some things that he should'nt have like walking in on his parents or finding daddy's porn collection once they see this type of stuff it's hard to forget he realy needs some help cause it's not healty for him

Hes five, so he doesnt understand why its wrong. But it is.

Makes you wonder where hes seen that behaviour, tv, movies... or reality?

you've spoken to his parents, and nothing has changed. Speak to him, tell him that its bad, and ask him why he does it. Younger children are more likely to tell the truth than older. If nothing else changes, i'd get social services involved.

Sounds_ever so_slightly inappropriate to me. My little brother has never been like that, but that doesn't really mean much. He could have learnt such behaviour from any number of ways and people, so he might or might not be being abused, but no-one could say for sure from just what you've written here.

I don't think you should just leave it though. What could you do and who can you talk to about this?

Also, what were his parents' reactions upon hearing what you told them?

This is not normal. You have to find the root of this behavior, it could get worse.

i'd go with your instincts on this one... sounds like he's either discovered someone's porn stash, the code for the bad tv channels, walked in on mom and dad, or been abused.

i know thats the age when boys start figuring out they have a penis and stuff, but that seems like a sign of him being exposed to sexual behavior in the home or who knows where.

For a young child who is not anywhere near puberty, much less sexual maturity, these behaviors must be taught. He couldn't know those gestures naturally on his own. I would do everything possible to assure that he is not being abused. I'm afraid you will find that he is

I agree. A normal boy wouldn't do that on his own, he probably sees his dad often doing these things to his mom and is taught that it is ok to do this.

Update on situation:

I had another talk with the parents, the boy and my supervisor. The boy has since stopped grabbing my chest and slapping my behind. There has since been only one incident in which he was singing "suck my wiener" over and over again, but that's pretty much it. Thanks for all your input and advice!

If you're really concerned, do not ask his parents about it. More than likely, they will deny everything about his behavior and possibly get YOU into trouble or blame you for teaching him those things, even though you didn't. Instead, please contact child services immediately, as this little boy is most likely been abused or being raised in an unfit environment.

He is FIVE??? What a little pervert. He might be having trouble sleeping and had found his parents doing it. He might have a baby sitter who calls her boyfriend/his girlfriend and the guy does those things to the girl and he may be seeing that. He could also be influenced by strangers and maybe a friends big brother or something. Anyway dress in thicker clothes so he doesnt get attracted to you or something.

Sounds fishy to me, look up signs of sexual abuse see some of those very things listed. Definitaly seems a little over sexualized for five, to talk that way to me.

i think it is, when i was little i would touch myself in school all the time. I would grab the girl bottoms and look up there dresses when they went down the slide

Eh when I was 5 I would get naked and hump my sisters friends :D Haha. I wasn't abused or anything I think It was something I learned from adult tv.

The parents could be very sexual with each other making the kid believe that its normal way to show affection

Hey rock videos have shit like guys bleeding through mouths and fucked up screaming and people depicting fallen angels and demons. So yeah lets not get into shit like that.
The kid probably saw his parents fucking or saw adult TV.

That's gross! You need to give this boy consequences! He needs to learn, and you need to lay down the law.

a couple of years ago when i came home from a night out with my friends i saw my 3 year old brother watching porn of TV and touching hes penis .
it was like 12am , (the cartoon channel changes to porn at that time )
but still how couldve he known to touch hes penis when it was lesbian porn ?
must be natural i think .
But now a the age of 6 he is kind of a perv as well

one of the girls in my class acts the same (shes 8) and she tells other students to kiss her clit and stuff egh i say completely not normal you should either sue for sexual harasment or think of a more suitable punishment i recommend you sue becuase it has to be the parents fault.

When I graduated from primary school, we had to walk through an "arch" created by the younger grades. There were eight year old boys grabbing my ass and breasts.

children usually repeat what they c, could b from the parents or mayb a babysitter, or even a school student. it is not normal for a regular 5 yr but all u can do is ignore the child and wait til this phase is done.
