Children in China are being taught how to prevent sexual assault following a sex abuse scandal that rocked the country.

Parents are also purchasing more sexual health textbooks and signing up for online courses to better educate their children about sex.

Schools are also acting to educate youngsters, in a country where sex is traditionally a taboo subject.

The action follows a number of scandals that surfaced last month.

They included allegations against a Beijing’s Red Yellow Blue Kindergarten, where staff were teachers were accused of drugging and sexually assaulting children.

One parent claimed her child told her of a naked man or men – referred to as ‘uncle doctor’ and ‘grandpa doctor’ – who would performing a ‘health check’ on a naked child.

Han Xuemei oversees an organisation operating in dozens of Beijing-area schools that administer sex education to more than 9,000 pupils.

‘After Red Yellow Blue, people started paying much greater attention to us. Several kindergartens asked us to help train their teachers,’ she told the Los Angeles Times.

Sex education in the country varies widely from school to school — with some offering none whatsoever.

Now, parents are taking matters into their own hands so youngsters can spot the warning signs of sexual abuse.
