About this Episode:

Children and youth experience self-exploration and curiosity as a natural part of childhood development. As children’s behaviors and understanding of their sexuality are formed, problematic sexual behaviors may arise. Understanding potential sexual development challenges is essential to supporting families and children during this crucial time of growth.

In this episode, we discuss normative versus problematic sexual behaviors in children and youth. Dr. Gregory Leskin provides an in-depth conversation on challenges that arise with inappropriate sexual behaviors and explores resources for families and providers to promote healthy sexuality as children develop into adulthood.
