Chapter 3

Sex impressions and reactions are apt to develop at an early age,

especially in the case of boys. If the child's physical health is

normal, however, they should not affect his mind or body. The growing

boy should be encouraged to take his sex questions and sex problems to

his parents (in his case preferably the father) for explanation. Thus

they may be made clear to him naturally and logically. He should not

be told what he soon discovers is not true: that babies are "dug up

with a silver spade," or make their appearances in the family thanks

to the kind offices of storks or angels. Instead, by analogy with the

reproductive processes of all nature, the true facts of sex may be

explained to him in a soothing and normal way.


Too often, the growing boy receives his first lessons regarding sex

from ignorant and vicious associates. Curiosity is one of the greatest

natural factors in the child's proper development, if rightly

directed. When wrongly led, however, it may have the worst

consequences. Even before puberty occurs, a boy's attention may be

quite naturally drawn to his own sex organs.
