Our Whole Lives: Lifespan Sexuality Education by the Unitarian Church (non-secular)
For example: when kids get naked and examine each other, most times its just curiosity. Naked is part of gender identity. That's why they play Dr., because they've been told by parents that that’s a safe space to be naked.
Q: What about nakedness between mom and son?
A: Once the boy starts going through puberty, is a good rule to stop. But in our society, generally 5 years old or so is when most people stop. If he's curious about bodies, its better that he can see moms vs. going on the internet to see more.
Q: 11 year old girl, and wants to make sure she develops a healthy body image.
A: There are groups for pre-teens to get involved in that are designed to promote good self-esteem and body image- specifically Girls On The Run in our area.
Q: 11 year old boy who is very curious about vagina's and what they look like.
A: Get a book with non-pornographic images. Powells books, siecus.org may have good book recommendations
Q: When do you talk about the reason why people have sex (Beyond to make babies, but the truth: It feels good for both parties)?
A: High school. When they are able to engage in abstract reasoning: around puberty.
