Most children will not repeat the harmful sexual behaviour if they are given clear boundaries and have the potential consequences of such behaviour explained to them; how it affects both the violated party and themselves. Some adolescents will need further counselling in how to manage and master social interaction, sexual emotions, rejection by peers, and guilt/shame about having committed a sexual violation.

If the harmful sexual behaviour repeats or the child/young person does not respond to correction, counselling, and measures, you need to refer them to therapy for more extensive evaluation, risk assessment and assault-specific treatment.
