The discovery of their own body and the body of others is a sign of a healthy curiosity that children have: it is a pleasant game only if it is shared between children of the same age who have the same level of maturity. It is not acceptable when one child abuses his or her power over another. If this happens then an adult must intervene.

While it is important to try to answer children’s curiosity and questions about sexuality with – if necessary – the help of age-appropriate books, this should always be limited to their questions and capacity to understand. It would be highly inappropriate to show them what sexual pleasure is by touching them, by asking them to touch you or by showing them your sexual organ or sexual images: no sexual act can be considered informative.
Appropriate educational explanations are reassuring, actions are destructive sexual abuse.
