The article is very stunning and shocking for most people reading it the first time. Some of the first thoughts that may cross a person's mind is, how disgusting and gross it is for a 12 year old to be playing around in any kind of way sexually with a 4 year old. But it is real and things like this happen in everyday life to more kids than most people imagine.
I would not really make a big issue out of it as long as the little girl was ok. The 12 year old boy does need to be talked to and counseled with. The behavior was inappropriate, but in our society it is likely that he seen the behavior elsewhere and is probably acting it out. He may have thought it was the right thing to do while exploring his curiosity. Both children need to be talked to by some kind of professional counselor, and parents' of both children need to do a better job at watching their children and making sure appropriate behaviors and actions are taking place.
