ABSTRACT
The article presents a discussion on sexual behavior problems (SBP) among children with emphasis on the result of a study by Carpentier, Silovsky, and Chaffin. SBP among children is seen as a progressive behavior pattern resulting to adolescent and adult sexual offenses. However, previous studies revealed that a child with SBP is not likely to commit adolescent or adult sexual offenses. On the other hand, the result of the Carpentier, Silovsky, and Chaffin study pointed out that the social and legal policy assumes that childhood SBP are difficult to establish and modify.
