The Traffic Lights App helps adults to identify, understand and respond to childrens sexual behaviour.
The App is based on the Traffic Lights framework used by child protection authorities around the world. It supports the development of healthy sexuality and protects young people from harm and abuse.
Traffic Light colours are used to describe whether a specific behaviour is normal or not. It follows a logical structure:
- Enter the childs age, sex and type of behaviour
- Identify whether the behaviour is green, orange or red by clicking the traffic light colours
- Expand the sub-headings to identify reasons for the behaviour and how you might respond
Most sexual behaviours of children and young people are normal and healthy. However, please note that laws vary from place to place. While green light behaviours are normal and healthy, they may not be legal in every jurisdiction.
