  • From 9-11 years, your child might start to show more independence from your family and more interest in friends.

  • From 10-14 years, your child might want to spend more time in mixed gender groups, which might eventually end up in a romantic relationship.

  • From 15-19 years, romantic relationships can become central to social life. Friendships might become deeper and more stable.

Many teenagers spend a lot of time thinking and talking about being in a relationship. In these years, teenage relationships might last only a few weeks or months. It’s also normal for children to have no interest in romantic relationships until their late teens. Some choose to focus on schoolwork, sport or other interests.

  • For some young people, sexual development during adolescence will include same-sex attraction and experiences.

For 3-10% of young people, the start of puberty will mean realising they’re attracted to people of the same sex. A larger number of young people might develop bisexual attraction.
