So are my days of casual nakedness at home over? Nobody touches it.

Is 6 Year Old's Sexual Behavior Inappropriate?
Many commenters agree that the image is touching and should not be viewed as sexual.

How can I recognize sexual abuse if it happened to my three-and-a-half-year-old daughter? About a month ago she told me a friend of ours touched her vagina. Since that time she has said nothing else and on gentle questioning she said it did not happen. There are no behavioral changes and her behavior towards the man in question has not changed at all. I have no idea why she said this and my feeling is that it is completely innocent. She is also at the stage where she is very interested in what a penis is and what a vagina is — she occasionally can be found on the floor probing her vagina. But, is there anything I should be concerned about and how do I recognize real abuse of a child?
Hi Dr. I am having some issues with my 6 year old son. He is all about being inappropriate lately. His new word is nipples, and he has gotten himself into trouble a few times at home using it incessantly. The other day he went so far as to say he wanted to kiss his sister's nipples! He will come up to me and pat my butt or my boob, and when he hugs me sometimes I notice he will strategically put his face or hand on my boob. Last year in kindergarten he got in trouble for pinching a little girls butt, and this year a boy on his bus gave him a drawing of two naked people that said "I love sex" on it.
