My 10 year old son recently spent the night at a friend's house along with a couple of other friends. Two days later, two of the other parents came to me and asked to discuss some of the activities that occurred that night. Apparently the children were not being closely supervised and they engaged in a game of truth or dare. There were 2 boys and two girls all around the same age. The game progressed from silly dares like doing a monkey dance, to more sexual dares. My son's friend dared one of the girls to flash-she did. Then my son dared the other girl to moon-she did. Then the girls dared to boys to run around the room naked; a dare which the boys returned to the girls. When the other parents approached me it was made to seem as if my son was the only child with inappropriate dares. We discussed the game with my son, discussed poor choices and the consequences of those choices, and he was grounded and told he had to have adult supervision when playing with the children in the future. My question is was this behavior normal sexual curiosity for a 10 year old or do we need to seek therapy?
