Sexual games between children are frequent during childhood. Playing "dads and moms" or "doctors" is something very common when we are small. In fact, most of us have probably participated in this type of games when we have been children.
However, there are many parents who, observing that their child is participating in a sexual game with another child, feel overwhelmed and worried about not knowing how to manage this situation. Parents, when they witness how their child is performing a con game with sexual dyes se, ask themselves many times: is what my child does normal? should I be worried? what should I do? Do I let him continue to play or do I call his attention? Do I punish him for it? How to react if we see our son performing a sexual gameSexuality is intrinsic to the human being and manifests itself throughout our life since we are born. Now, their manifestations are different depending on the stage in which we are transiting. Obviously, sexual sexuality is not experienced or manifested in the same way during childhood as during adulthood.
- Sexuality is as natural as eating or drinking, so we must be cautious when responding to the child's manifestations of their sexuality. If we react with an alarmist attitude and we convey to the child that the behaviors, which he has carried out with the aim of exploring and discovering his sexuality, are bad and inappropriate,
we can contribute to repress the sexuality of our son and that he live his sexuality with anxiety and I can not enjoy it when I'm an adult.
- If we respond negatively and from fear or amazement, when our son touches his genitals or becomes the protagonist of a sexual game with another boy or girl, we are favoring the child to be frightened and even feel embarrassed and guilty for doing something that a priori is as natural as any other basic function of the human being. In short, the way to react to a situation related to the sexuality of our child, conveys a message to the child that can help or on the contrary hinder the child's sexual development.
- We should not worry or be alarmed . Sexual games during childhood that take place between children of the same age and in which children participate voluntarily, are normal, healthy and are part of the development of children. - It is important that we promote a relationship of trust with our child
and understand communication as our main ally and as the tool that will allow us to know the concerns and concerns of our children. Parents have to lay the foundations to promote a healthy sexuality in our little ones.- If we consider that the behavior that our child manifests is inappropriate we should
talk to them from calm and consider that we have an opportunity to teach them what is or is not appropriate to do.We must provide our children with an adequate sex education and seek to have a relationship of trust with them that allows us to speak naturally about this type of situation and at the same time offer them correct information appropriate to their age and level of development.
