6-year-old boy suspended for kissing a girl on the cheek

Hunter Yelton

A 6-year-old boy has been suspended from a Colorado school for kissing a girl on the cheek.

KRDO-TV reports Hunter Yelton kissed the girl

during class because he has a crush on her. The boy's mother said the girl did not object to the kiss and that they are "boyfriend and girlfriend." School officials in Canon City are accusing the boy of sexual harassment and they want it on his school record.

The boy's mother tells KRDO-TV her son was suspended once before for kissing the girl and had disciplinary problems in the past.

A school district official says the repeat offenses meet the school policy definition of sexual harassment and they hope the tough standards will force the boy to change his behavior. The boy's mother is upset with the use of the term sexual harassment, because her son is now asking her what "sex" means.
