What the Expert Says:

Dear Tjklar:

when a child of this age demonstrates sexual behavior uncommon to the age, one would suspect child abuse.  Discuss this with your pediatrician.  What is common at this age is looking, touching, and expressing glee over what a 5 year old penis can do, but not much more. Take this to the professionals for appropriate questioning of the boys involved.
