Mom upset over handling of boys accused of touching daughter in sexual manner


A mother said two boys pinned her daughter to the floor and pretended to have sex with her in a Dayton Public Schools kindergarten classroom.

“Why should my daughter have to experience that at 5?” the mother said. “No.”

That wasn’t the only inappropriate behavior she witnessed at her daughter's school, World of Wonder.

DPS has not returned calls from News Center 7.

Dayton police said that nothing that happened was criminal — and that has a lot to do with the ages of the children involved.

However, there could be other agencies stepping in to make sure the two boys know what they’re accused of doing isn’t OK.

“The room was in total chaos,” the mother said of her daughter's kindergarten classroom during pickup Friday afternoon.

News Center 7 is not identifying the mother to protect her daughter.

“These are whole 5- and 6-year-olds,” she said. “How do ya’ll know about touching each other?”

She described seeing two of her daughter’s classmates, both boys, pinning another girl and pretending to have sex with her with their clothes on.

“I told them myself, get up. Get up. Like what are ya’ll doing?” she said. “That was the first thing I said, what are ya’ll doing?”

The mom said she took her daughter and went straight to the principal’s office to report it.

“She just wrote they names down and said that she would call they parents.”

Then, as they left, the mom said her daughter told her the same two boys did the same thing to her and that one of the boys exposed himself to her.

The mom said she went back to the principal Monday.

“And I asked her, well what you gonna do with my daughter? She said she’ll be in a different classroom until the end of the week.”

The mother talked to Dayton police too.

DPD said the Specials Victim Unit detectives investigated, but decided not to pursue criminal charges given the ages of the children.

Police left it up to the school to make any referrals to Children Services.

Montgomery County Job and Family Services said they could not confirm whether or not they were contacted.

“With children, any touching that someone doesn’t want is not cool,” said Dr. Dennis O’Grady, a Centerville psychologist. “It’s not cool.”

O’Grady said that when talking to children about inappropriate touching it’s best for adults to teach by example.

“I want to demonstrate kindness,” he said. “So I want to demonstrate shaking hands, or I want to demonstrate a salute to someone, hello. I want to demonstrate show those teeth, smile! I would want to teach that’s appropriate touching.”

The mother said she wants to make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else.

The mom said she plans on transferring her daughter to another school next semester.
