While the teacher was there. Now the teacher is suspended. The article describes a second sex act, too. WTF, Oakland!

"love it, kids do wrong and someone else get the blame. great message society`s sending there"

Um...how exactly would you handle this situation, then? Should the children (7 year olds, mind you) be punished?
I hope you don`t have kids.

@Chimmeychang I agree with you 100%. I am acctually in awe how right you are. Thankyou for showing me that people can acctualy think about that the PARENTS are responsible for the childs phisical, emotional and mental development and the only ones to blame are them. Not the media, not the teacher, not other kids, THE PARENTS. The proof is right in front of us. The millions of normal, well adjusted kids are all the proof that we should need but people just want to push blame onto others. And so you all know, this problem isn`t any worse now thant it was 20 years ago, or even 50 years ago. The diffrence is that more people learn about thise instances than ever before and with the schools getting bigger theres a higher chance of two of these type of kids being in the same class room. Now dont ge me wrong, its the teacher`s fault too but not entirly or even mostly. Please do the world a favor and think about it all for a minute. Again thankyou Chimmeychang

as long as parents fight sex education in kindergarten, it is the parents responsibility to teach them about sexual behavior, not the schools. Sure any responsible adult would have stopped the actions as soon as they were aware... but should not be held accountable for the actions of the children(unless they instigated it, in which case we have laws against that)Bottom line is, people need to be responsible for their kids, or not...no hiding behind whats on tv, or what they teach in schools. It is YOUR JOB AS A PARENT to either keep them away from this stuff, or educate them about it.

the children don`t know any better? I`m pretty sure by second grade kids know that you can`t take your clothes off in public and be doing... um.. "mommy and daddy things"
Looks to me like bad parenting played a roll here.

Has anyone actually looked at the comments in the provided link? Wow, the nutjobs have really come out in a frenzy.

The reality is this is an isolated incident caused by two factors: 1) Parents not doing their job, and 2) A pedophile basically standing by and watching instead of doing the only legally justifiable thing: Intervening.

Parents simply have no desire to talk to their kids about sex. This is the root cause of incidents like these. Parents are responsible for equipping their children with the knowledge of appropriate versus inappropriate behavior. We live in a changing world. No longer can parents expect their 6, 7, 8 year old children to remain unexposed to sex. We live in a world of iPads, several PCs per home, internet at school, cell phones, etc. Parents trying to sterilize their children`s lives are fighting a losing battle. The ONLY correct response by parents is to start teaching their kids the rights/wrongs about sex at an earlier age. When they don`

wow. I had to look up how old a second grader is (7-8) and just wow!

Part of me is thinking it COULD be a lack of supervision from the teacher - I mean in our class at that age there were parts of the classroom a teacher could not see while sitting in other parts.. but they didn`t say whether the teacher was watching... hmmm

But yeah, if watching... wrong wrong wrong!

____________

But another part of me agrees with Commentator below - sorry girls!

For the record though, this is just WRONG!

These children should not be villainized because it is up to the adults to teach proper social etiquette. Kids at that age naturally play sexual games with each other and it`s totally normal and for the most part harmless. They should not be made to feel ashamed. I want to know: how many children are in this classroom? With teacher layoffs, class size is getting bigger and bigger. But in any case, it would be hard not to notice naked children in your care. The teacher should be jailed if that`s the case.

phoneybone, it`s absolutely absurd that a teacher could simply `overlook` something like that in a 2nd grade classroom. That`s truly unacceptable. The teachers aren`t there to simply stand about and let the kids do whatever they want. They`re there for supervision, which this particular teacher clearly didn`t understand.

While I agree the teacher is obviously terrible at supervision, kids running around naked is not a goddamn sex act. This is almost as bad as the 2nd grader in my local school who was ARRESTED for pulling down the pants of other kids.

why did they fail to mention this was a sex education class?
kids dont care about the banana method, they want a first hand show.

i was suckling titties in my 5th grade science class, the teacher never said anything. my art room teacher wore super short skirts and no panties, it was the only class i sat up front for.

I don`t know why everyone is so dumbfounded as to how this came about. One of the kids walked in on his parents going at it, he/she was curious, and the kid asked another if he/she wanted to try it out. Regardless of your attitude on sex, this isn`t exactly hard to figure out.

And I`d want to know more about the situation before I start bad-mouthing the teacher. So she was "present." What does that mean? Was she just in the room, with the kids in a corner, behind a bookshelf? Or was she literally watching them at the front of the class?

The first option seems much more likely, and a crowded room of second-graders is hard to handle. Maybe she`s not the best teacher in the world. And yeah, maybe she lost track of a couple students for a few minutes. That doesn`t mean she`s some psycho-pedophile, though.

Then again, maybe she is a psycho-pedophile. Though you`d think, if she was actually encouraging it, they`d have mentioned that in the article

Little kids are wierd. I remember, when I was in third grade, a girl asked me to lie on top of her and wiggle around. It seemed odd to me at the time, but everyone thought I was the strange one, so who knows.

Even if the teacher hadn`t directed the students to take off their clothes, to just stand around while they were running around naked indicates that there`s something wrong with that teacher. And while there is a very small number of children that age aware of what oral sex is, again, the teacher should not have simply stood around while the kids were doing it.

just a thought and i`m not sure how to word this. i`m not as articulate as other commentators. but what if the kids didn`t like the teacher and this was a debliberate act to get rid of him. i know its very extreme. but every child in this day and age are aware of `inappropriate touching` and the like. and there are countless reports of unsubstantiated accusations within schools. and the fact that there are two reported incidents could indicate an escaltion of activity. like i say, just a thought. and its not a nice one. either way its very wrong.

Yes, believe it or not, good parenting involves more than just providing your child with enough food and shelter to keep them alive until they hit 18 and you boot their asses out the door.

I`m more concerned about the parents. They should have talked to their kids about appropriateness if they were uncomfortable talking about sex at that young an age. The problem lies within sex being a taboo topic in the US. If people weren`t so afraid to talk about it then the chances of this sh*t happening would drop. Don`t get me wrong, I`m not saying these kids didn`t do anything wrong. I`m also not saying the teacher had nothing to do with it. I`m just saying that if people weren`t afraid to talk about sex this would have been far less likely to have happened.

in my first grade class a boy ran up to the front of the room when the teacher stepped out and whipped his dick out and showed it to everyone. he did this multiple times until the teacher finally beleived us

@fancy Unless there`s abuse at home you don`t learn it at home. This is abuse by the teacher. The teacher was present both times.

As far as parents responsible for seeing this behavior, that`s not always easy. It`s not like there`s a big neon sign that says `ABUSED`.

As far as children never engaging in "sexual" acts at an early age, that`s not true, but it`s not nearly so much sexual than curiosity (assuming its with someone their own age and not a creepy adult). Playing "doctor" is a kids game. Playing "show you mine if you show me yours" is a kids game. It`s just a part of growing up.

Hearing `suck my richard` is likely before the age of 8. I think most 8 year olds understand the meaning of the words, but not the act. It`s like that cartoon of the two kids naked with one standing on the others head with caption "okay we got naked and I climbed on top of you, when does it start to feel good".

For everyone condemning the kids: From the article, it sounds more like them listening to what the teacher told the to do than them doing things on their own. Especially since kids had been naked in his class earlier that week. Sound very much like pedophilic behavior. I`m surprised that a video camera wasn`t mentioned, since there probably was one involved.

@calummac 2nd grade is like 7 year olds.

This is just horrible. I can`t believe that any of this could happen with a teacher in the room. How in the hell could kids this age get naked (or even think it ok to get naked)..I had nightmares of showing up to school naked by accident...

And ew don`t even get me started on the whole oral thing. That is just disgusting and wrong. I don`t want to hear about how we demonize sex and its perfectly natural for kids that age to "experiment"...
Experimenting at that age would be say, being curious about the opposite sexes parts..
Ughhh Puke

I`m thinking more on the children then the teacher. Children engaging in sexual acts at an early age is so unusual, they can`t possibly have not known what they were doing. They had to have known exactly what they were doing, it`s definitely not an ordinary playing activity in children! And I can only imagine them being really slutty, underage pregnant kids.

Kids this young are probably nowhere near puberty, so they are probably just imitating something they saw.

I honestly have trouble wrapping my head around this. Was the teacher just standing around while this happened?

@techgeek07: I agree with you in that the teacher (and the school district) is going to take the fall on this, BUT, a second grader (I think about 6- or 7-years-old) learns this behavior at home.

I`m not saying one or more of these kids involved were molested by their parents, but it`s the parents job to notice indicators in their children that might tell them that their kid has been sexually molested.
