An elementary school teacher in Florida called the police after a 5-year-old student allegedly “groped her in the vagina” again.
The Smoking Gun reports that this was the second time the young boy, a student at the Blanche H. Daughtrey Elementary School in Bradenton, had grabbed her inappropriately. She contacted police after the second incident, noting that the boy’s behavior had “escalated” and “become aggressive and vulgar the past 2 weeks.”
The Stir notes that some children’s curiosity about adult body parts begin around 5 years old, but they don’t know what is and isn’t appropriate yet. The parenting blog adds if there is “a pattern of inappropriate sexualized behavior,” it can indicate that something is wrong.
As stated in a police report, the child is likely a kindergartner at the school, which has pre-kindergarten through fifth grade students. The school prepares students for “academic success and life as responsible citizens,” according to its mission statement.
No charges have been filed in relation to the groping, which allegedly happened on Oct. 9.
