Considerations around the love relationships among adolescents

Sheyla Pinto da Silva About the author

This study is an attempt to discuss the social construction of adolescents' love relationship through under the perspective that, in each historical period, the sexual and love manifestations, claimed or not as an ideal, are also a reflection of the social and cultural everyday life transformations. The fact that I have coexisted with children and adolescents in classrooms and observed some attitudes and behaviors related to their love and sexual life has been the source of food for though, which resulted in a proposal of an educational work in this area. The text arise some questions as the influence of the instrumental action of the seduction and the necessity of technical quality in the sexual and love performance in the training of youth nowadays.
