Relationships and Sex Education 5-11: Supporting Children's Development and Well-Being
'Where do babies come from?' The prospect of this age-old question is one that causes significant apprehension for many professionals working with children. Clear strategies to support children's questions about growing up, relationships and sex are essential so that they are enabled to stay safe and healthy, develop positive and confident views about themselves and those around them, and deal with peer and media pressures.
This book provides a solid, research-informed background to these issues and considers the historical context of relationships and sex education. It explores how to help children deal with a wide range of relationship issues and suggests ways of helping children to begin to explore the social, emotional and physical changes that occur as they grow and mature.
Case studies, research summaries, ideas for developing practice and signposts to key websites and resources make this a really engaging and user-friendly text.
Essential reading for those new to teaching relationships and sex education in the primary sector.
