When do children start becoming curious about sex?
Children are human beings and therefore sexual beings. It's hard for parents to acknowledge this, just as it's hard for children to think of their parents as sexually active. But even infants have curiosity about their own bodies, which is healthy and normal.

Their parent's reaction will tell them whether their actions are acceptable. Toddlers should not be scolded or made to feel ashamed of being interested in their bodies.
