Children’s sexual behaviours can be embarrassing and confusing and sometimes cause concern. Knowing what’s considered normal can ease some of the worry of parenting. Knowing more about sexual behaviours is part of helping protect children from harm.
Is this normal? Understanding your child’s sexual behaviour provides parents and carers with:
a simple way to identify, understand and respond to children’s sexual behaviours
everyday situations to put this information in context
tools to support communication with children about sexuality and relationships
ways to respond when a child’s behaviour is not appropriate for their age
next steps if you need support
