By age 13 or 14, girls may seek touch from females and males in their...

We can’t address touch and sexual desire without talking about the M word. Although most parents will cringe (or even stop reading right here!) at the thought of discussing masturbation with their child, most children have already...

With Spring in the air and Summertime coming soon, groups of tween and teen kids will begin to gather around pools, backyards, and malls. Within those groups, some pairing off begins, and so does the dating game.
