Children should know about the basic social conventions of privacy, nudity, and respect for others in relationships.
Children should be taught the basics about puberty towards the end of this age span, as a number of children will experience some pubertal development before age 10.
Children’s understanding of human reproduction should continue. This may include the role of sexual intercourse.

Tweens should also learn to judge whether depictions of sex and sexuality in the media are true or false, realistic or not, and whether they are positive or negative.
