COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – A six-year-old boy kissed a classmate and got suspended for sexual harassment.

Now, his mom is fighting to get the incident removed from his school record.

Hunter, the six-year-old boy allegedly leaned over and kissed his classmate on the hand during reading.

For that, Hunter is home, instead of at school.

The superintendent says Hunter’s record will remain within the district and that Hunter’s actions fit the school policy description of “sexual harassment.”

A child clinical psychologist says it’s normal for a six-year-old boy to try to kiss girls.

She believes suspending him, and calling the kiss sexual harassment, sends mixed messages to kids.
