These pages are a key part of this book. All children are exposed to things. Many children have things happen to them. Most children don’t talk to their parents. Why? They feel fear, shame, and have no idea how the conversation is going to go.
**One of the most frequently asked questions I get revolves around masturbation, or young children who have explored their body and now have a habit of stimulating themselves. These parents believe that masturbation and habitual self-stimulation is not a form of healthy sexuality. Mental and other health professionals have varying opinions on this topic. All parents are entitled to their own beliefs. This page discusses how to discourage self-stimulation, if you do not agree with this position, feel free to skip this post.**
