I just wondered what is normal sexual thinking of a ten year old boy is. I have a 10 year old that has been sexually abused in the past....what would his sexual thinking be? We wake up and he is out of his bed trying to have sex with his teddy bear. Is this normal? I hope so cause I have another 6 year old boy that will be going through this. Although the six year old has not been sexually abused. Thank you
No, this would not be regarded as within the normal spectrum. Simulation of intercourse is not a normal expectation of a child of ten (or any child, for that matter). He should be evaluated and treated. It is quite likely (though I obviously cannot say it is certain) that his behavior is a consequence of his sexual mistreatment.
