A 4 year old child was given an “in-school suspension” for what was termed according to this article on MSNBC.COM:
“inappropriate physical behavior interpreted as sexual contact and/or sexual harassment” after he hugged the woman and he “rubbed his face in the chest of (the) female employee” on Nov. 10.
Now, maybe it is just me, but if you view anything done by a 4 year old to be “interpreted as sexual contact” then you need to have your head examined, because you have some serious issues. Thus it should be the teachers aide that “interpreted” this contact as “sexual” that needs to be removed from the equation. Could it be considered inappropriate? Sure. A child resting or pressing their head against the breasts of a woman that is not their mother could be interpreted that way, but I think I would be hard pressed to find a well adjusted mother that would consider that to be the case. “Natural” or “Instinctual” are words that would more likely come to mind. But Sexual? I think that aide needs some serious time with a therapist, because there are issues there that have nothing to do with a 4 year old.
