How Peer Pressure can damage your child (Statistics)

Contrary to popular belief, peer pressure isn’t something that suddenly comes about in teenagehood. It is there from our earliest social interactions. Babies look to their mothers for cues on how to behave, toddlers look to their teachers and friends, and teens look to the ‘cool kids’.   As pack animals that we are, humans naturally look to the “alpha’s” to dictate our behaviour, what is acceptable and what isn’t. It’s just how we are. We even self-evaluate to see if our behaviour is in line with that of the rest of the pack.   Children in Primary or Elementary school are at a phase in their lives psychologists call the industry vs inferiority. At this stage, children form and […]

If they do, have them explain it to you and correct any false notions. If they do not, teach them that though they may not be sexually active right now, they will be later in the future.   It is necessary for them to know […]

Age Appropriate Sex Education better for Your Baby and Toddler – (Part one: Preschoolers – children under 6)

Every parent of a 4-year-old can testify that they are curious. They enjoy the exploration of their body and those of others. Oh and if all that extra energy and running around wasn’t enough, this is also a period of increased independence and self-confidence.   Thus translating to them confidently doing absurd things in public, such as asking another child to raise her dress, blatantly touching their genitals in public or even asking awkward, unexpected sex-related questions to other adults and at the wrong place.   If we are honest, at this age, it really isn’t sexuality education, but the foundation of it. The goal at this stage is to get kids confident and comfortable with their bodies and knowing […]
