Beware the Young Sexualized Bully

29 Sep

Via Scoop.itHealthcare Continuing Education

While we have reliable data about the sexual behaviors of high school teenagers, we have less for middle school teens, and very little concerning the sexual behaviors of elementary school children. It is easy to appreciate why; there are legal, ethical, and moral barriers to studying the private sexual behaviors of minors and the younger the minor the harder it is. One of the best ways however, to get a window of insight into children’s sexual behaviors is by asking elementary school teachers and staff what sort of sexual behaviors they witness during the course of a school year. Not surprisingly, the younger the child the more clumsy the child is in hiding her or his sexual behavior. That is, there is less development of sexual modesty and an overall less sophisticated awareness of “hiding one’s behavior” in young children that allow adults to glean some insight into the personal sexual behaviors of children.
