Nowadays children start asking about sex or demonstrate sexualised behaviour manifestations quite early. Not every adult can give detailed (exhaustive) answer on sex issues to a child and understand if early manifestations of infantile sexuality are standard for a particular age. Specialists working with adolescents face the manifestations of their clients’ sexualised behaviour regularly. In order to realise what is the norm and what crosses the line of the norm, we will deal with the following issues:
- a person’s sexuality and its components;
- infantile sexuality manifestations on various stages of child’s development;
- how and when you should talk to children and adolescents about sex;
- how to teach a child/adolescent to protect themselves from sexual violence.
