David Coleman Twitter Email. Advice from parenting expert and clinical psychologist David Coleman on how best to deal with a five-year-old daughter's masturbation. My five-year-old daughter was constantly "grinding" on her chair in school last year and I had numerous meetings with her teacher. She has done this grinding since she was a baby. I can remember her doing it in her high chair and she also does it in her car seat. She can't seem to stop herself and I can only assume she enjoys the feeling it's giving her.
Dear David: 'My five-year-old daughter constantly touches herself... should I stop her?'
California Close To Revising Sex Education Guidelines For Teachers – CBS San Francisco
A Las Vegas area school district is apologizing to parents and dropping a set of resources from a national organization that specializes in designing comprehensive sex ed curricula, following a massive outcry from residents who were concerned about sexual health information potentially being taught in kindergarten. The Clark County School District is anticipating a future state law that may require schools to implement more comprehensive sex ed. In order to prepare for that potential policy change, school district officials began considering adopting some of the guidelines laid out in the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education , a model curriculum published by the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States SIECUS. For over five decades, that group has helped schools develop sex ed classes that include age-appropriate information about anatomy, birth control, sexually transmitted infections, gender identity, and healthy relationships. They argued that the proposed material was too explicit for kids. One parent at the meeting said she opposed the proposed material because it teaches kids that abortion is safe, a fact confirmed by multiple studies that she does not personally agree with. Other adults were concerned that a comprehensive sex ed class might include information about sexual assault or sexual orientation.
One couple told last night how they were so disturbed they withdrew their sons from lessons at a school where the programme is already being taught. Family campaigners and religious groups warned that vague guidelines issued by the Department for Education meant schools could soon be providing sexual material to young children that many parents would consider inappropriate. Even politicians who had supported the RSE legislation expressed concern. These classes go way beyond the guidance the Government is producing and are effectively sexualising very young children.

The proposal the California State Board of Education is scheduled to consider Wednesday offers advice on teaching health topics including nutrition, injury prevention and alcohol and tobacco use. Those who could not get inside circled the building holding signs. The state updated its health education standards in But because of a budget crisis, state officials never gave schools a framework for how to teach them. That could change Wednesday when the California State Board of Education is scheduled to vote on a major revision to its health education curriculum framework.
