Pre-Teens (10-12 years): Healthy Sexual Behaviour

Children at this age get more curious about sex and sexual behaviour. This is expressed through:

  • kissing, hugging and ‘dating’ other children
  • being interested in other people’s body parts and the changes that happen in puberty
  • asking about relationships and sexual behaviour
  • looking for information about sex, this might lead to finding online porn
  • masturbating in private.
