I think the way people reacted to the 5 year old's actions will probably make the children focus more on that sort of behaviour. It should have been dealt with by the teacher saying something like "it's rude to touch people's backsides without their permission. Now apologise". Or "we don't do things like that at kinder". Instead it has been given such importance that the kids will probably be very confused for a very long time. It could affect their development a lot more than the original "assault".

An experienced teacher should be able to tell why the boy did it, judging by the context, what the boy said his demeanour etc. Sometimes when a young child does somehting like that, it can be a sign that they have become "sexualised" through abuse, or at the very least watching inappropriate material. In the vast majority of cases it is just silly behaviour or curiosity.

How the hell would the kid know it's wrong unless you tell them?
Punishing them for something they didn't know was wrong is bullshit.
Seriously?
A five year old trying to cop-a-feel?
What the fuck?

They can figure out ways to prevent kids from doing it and hold the parents at fault. I don't think the law should be involved since I honestly think that they don't have a sense of why it is wrong and how wrong it is. If you just think lightly of everything done by a 5 year old, you can say that a 5 year old stabbing another kid or pushing someone down a stairway without realizing the real consequences of this behavior is fine. I can picture a kid finding a pair of scissors or a sharp blade swinging or thrusting it around like an action hero or cartoon character. A sense of wrongdoing needs to be shown to the child after they have done something physically inappropriate to someone else. I do think that it's up to the parents and schools to instill this at an early age and to keep an eye on this type of behavior. I think the parents and teachers can punish the child since they had negative intentions even if it wasn't sexual by intent. I think schools should enforce certain punishments (not suspension since this really doesn't help anyone) encourage parents to discipline their children. I know some parents don't discipline their children so I think the school needs to take action as well. Perhaps a 2nd offense can be grounds for expulsion from the school (maybe only for private schools) if the parents of the victims or the victims themselves request it.

When a child exhibits sexual behaviours, should we really be questioning what punishment to give the child, or really what has provoked this behaviour in the child? Or are we reading too much into behaviours because of the alarming rates and numbers of sexual crimes.
