In recent years, the rise in sexual assault cases has led to increased emphasis on sex education. China has incorporated it into its legal framework to prevent assault among minors. This article delves into sex education through an interview with a Hangzhou kindergarten teacher, addressing two key questions: How is sex education implemented in Hangzhou kindergartens, and what challenges do educators face? The interview data is analyzed concerning content, methods, and influencing factors. The kindergarten employs a segmented approach with limited depth and avoids sensitive topics. A major challenge in Chinese sex education is the scarcity of resources compared to countries like the UK, the US, and Finland. Domestic kindergartens mainly use picture books, while international ones employ multimedia, peer education, and interactive tools with age-appropriate instruction. The article advocates enriching China’s sex education with diversity and scientific rigor, emphasizing the importance of comprehensive training and better parent-teacher communication to enhance effectiveness.
