Sexual Health - Parents and Educators

It's important that people who guide and work with children have a basic knowledge of the development of sexuality from infancy to adolescence. While the vast majority of children do not become sexually active (in the adult sense) until they are adolescents and may not think of themselves in sexual terms, many of the building blocks of sexual development and sexual health occur in childhood.
