Sexual Development

Though sexual development is typically associated with the teen years, in reality young kids develop an emotional and physical foundation for sexuality in many subtle ways from infancy.

Physical and emotional changes become more dramatic and complex with the onset of puberty and into the teen years, and kids are likely to have lots of questions.

By arming yourself with the facts, getting some sense of what to expect, and being there to answer questions and offer guidance, you can be a trusted source of information, comfort, and support for your kids.
