You can help your child by modelling and reinforcing values and beliefs about safety, responsibility, honest communication and respect in relationships by treating your partner with respect and talking about how to stay safe. Most teenagers will experiment with sexual behaviour at some stage — this is a normal, natural and powerful urge in these years. But not all teenage relationships include sex. Teenagers are also maturing emotionally and socially. They might want romantic intimacy and ways to express love and affection. And they might be curious and want to explore adult behaviour.

Klinefelter syndrome can cause problems with learning and sexual development in guys. It's a genetic condition meaning a person is born with it. Klinefelter syndrome only affects males. It happens because of a difference deep inside the body's cells, in microscopic strings of DNA what make up genes called chromosomes. Chromosomes are tiny, but they play a huge role in who we are — including deciding our gender, how we look, and how we grow. Doctors sometimes call Klinefelter syndrome "XXY. When puberty starts and guys' bodies begin to make sex hormones, boys with Klinefelter usually don't produce as much of the male hormone testosterone. That doesn't make a guy less male, but it can affect things like penis and testicle growth, and growth of body hair and muscles. Boys with Klinefelter syndrome may also have problems with attention, speech development, and learning word skills like spelling, reading, or writing.
