When children ask where babies come from or when toddlers touch their genitals, parents often don’t know how to react. Sexologist Magdalena Heinzl explains in an interview with the starwhy it is so important to educate daughter and son and what sexuality in children actually means.

In many families, there is little or no talk about sexuality, and the idea prevails that there should be an informational talk at the age of 12, 13 or 15.

The assumption is that as a society we say that sexuality is something that appears in the teenage years and then disappears in the elderly in their 50s or 60s. I find that very difficult. After all, humans are sexual beings from birth.

And enlightenment begins right after birth. What parents need to understand: You cannot not educate. Even if parents don’t say anything or blush when asked about genitals or masturbation, it does something to children. It can lead to sexuality being fraught with shame.
