My daughter is only 8 years old. Why do you see her breasts begin to develop? My son is just nine years old. Why has his chicken changed in color and size? Many parents have asked: Is the child sexually precocious? For children who have just knocked on the door of youth, precocious sex cannot be labeled.
Compared with the girls of the previous generation who only menstruated at the age of 15 or 16, menstruation has become a common occurrence for children at the age of 11 or 12. Experts told reporters that because of the increasingly developed culture and economy of modern society and the increasingly warming climate, children are also growing earlier and earlier. So, what is precocious puberty? The performance of adolescent girls is the appearance of secondary sexual characteristics such as breast development, pubic hair, axillary hair growth, and menstruation. Generally, menarche is 12-13 years old, earlier in tropical areas. Girls are less than 8 years old, their breasts grow, their pubic hair grows, and their menstruation is caused by precocious puberty. As for the male, the spring period is 2 to 3 years later than that of the girl, the secondary sexual characteristics such as bulging throat, rough voice and muscular development appear before the age of 10, and the first ejaculation is also precocious at the age of 11 to 12.
Due to the lack of necessary knowledge, current teachers and parents are too vigilant about children's adolescence, and often label these early but normal children as precocious, which will put unnecessary mental burden on children. Some parents take their children to the hospital clinic to discuss whether they are precocious. As a result, the child develops normally, but it leaves a psychological impact on the child. They feel that they are different from their classmates. Adolescent teenagers are interested in their own changes. If they are sexually precocious in the face of big enemies, they may become more and more alienated from the crowd, distance from the outside world, and have a deeper sense of communication with their parents and classmates. In addition, they may be interested in sex appeal, unable to concentrate on learning, and have a closed personality.
So what should parents and guardians do when children are confused about puberty and sex appeal? In fact, on the issue of sex education, the communication between parents and children is very important. Faced with the confusion of children's adolescence, parents should first correct their mood and know that it is better to actively convey the knowledge of adolescence to children than to wait for them to understand with bad methods. When conducting persuasion and education, parents and teachers should also maintain a bland attitude and do not stir up children's curiosity with a fussy attitude. In addition, parents and teachers should also take measures to let children shift their energy to learning and sports. They should let children understand that they may grow taller and bigger than their peers. It is just a small step ahead of others in development. This is not a bad thing, let alone precocious sex.
