It is a compendium of the anatomy, the physiology of puberty, the discovery and development of sexual and gender identity, but also assertiveness and social relations as well as online safety. It can also help adults to talk to children about their psychosexual development.

For each and every one of us, psychosexual development continues from cradle to grave. Adolescence is of huge importance. It is an intense and turbulent time that shapes the understanding and perception of oneself, the attitude to one’s body and identity, emotions, and expression of feelings, as well as a way of forging bonds and relationships throughout life.

Many parents do not know how to talk to their children about their sexuality. Teachers fail to fill this gap in education, and school education often contains erroneous information and myths. Adolescents are often lonely and confused about what is happening to them.

At the end of each chapter, there is a summary of important matters worth considering, two tables: Look for the answer and Think and take care, and a Glossary.
