Guides in the field of education, health, and hygiene of children constitute the source material used for the study. Research results indicate that development and operation in the field of child sexuality is influenced by many factors, which is why instructions that family should respect involved many aspects of life – sleeping, eating, clothing, leisure activities(games and toys, reading materials, proper company), etc. Counselling concentrated in main measure on aspects of a child’s sexual awareness and preventing masturbation.
