Are you concerned about the sexual behaviours of your child?
Have you noticed any unusual behaviour that you feel is overly sexual?
Do you want to understand more about how to support your child in developing safe beliefs and behaviours around sex?
Are you concerned about how to discuss sex and sexuality with your child?
Adolescents explore their own sexuality, and in most cases this exploration is perfectly normal and has no negative consequences or issues of concern. However, if the issue seems to be getting out of hand and is not addressed, later functioning and relationships could be impacted. Serious situations such as sexual abuse can lead to hypersexual behaviours in children.
It is critical to ensure you child is safe from harm. Evidence-based treatments for dealing with unhelpful sexual behaviours in children can then assist.
