But you need to do it in the privacy of your own room”) Childhood sexuality • Masturbation- many begin manipulation of genitals during early childhood • Most understand privacy issues, but if not, parents can make comments about choice of location (rather than the activity) • Telling them to stop doesn’t usually make the behavior go away, it just makes them feel bad about it (leads to shame about it/sexuality which can lead on to shame about their body later on) • Childhood sex play o >50% of kids engage in it o Usually involves curiosity about sexual equipment, exhibition (“you show me yours…”) and playing roles (doctor, husband/wife)
