COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) Officials at a Colorado school where a 6-year-old boy was suspended for kissing a girl have dropped the term "sexual harassment" from the boy's record, instead calling the behavior misconduct.

The change was made after the boy's parents and the principal met to discuss the issue.

The girl's mother, Jade Masters-Ownbey, told the Canon City Daily Record on Wednesday that the school district did a great job protecting her daughter from repeated harassment from the boy.

First-grader Hunter Yelton was given a two-day suspension, with a sexual harassment infraction on his discipline record. The boy's mother, Jennifer Saunders, insists the punishment was too harsh.
