A worried parent of a 7-year-old boy had contacted a psychiatrist on icliniq.com regarding some strange sexual behavior exhibited by the child. The parent was unsure where the child got the information from and wondered if he was subjected to any form of abuse in the past.
The parent also wanted to know if help should be sought and how to deal with this situation. The doctor reasoned out that he might have gained this knowledge from peers or videos and to drop the matter if it is an isolated incident.
The doctor weighed in the importance of providing sexual education to children as experimenting is just a normal part of growing up and nothing to be overly concerned about.
