That was all covered in my sexual education classes which were part of a health curriculum in my school when I was 12. Yes I knew about it beforehand because my parents were awesome and taught me what I needed to know, actually my mom did.

Yes you can opt your children out of these classes and they will have an alternate project, usually a research project.

Teaching children about masturbation?

Why???

I figured that out on my own when I was like two or three.

No...seriously. I'm not joking.

planned parenthood is antichrist.
they are a top illuminist organization bent on infiltrating all the worlds nations, chaining the inhabitants with sin, and making them slaves of satan for eternity.

I think this is more of an effort to open up sexuality early so that in the future we're not so squeemish about it. (The United States population). I know I saw my first porno at 8. (I snuck it out my stepdad's room) and was intrigued by it. We (The US) need to stop being to squeemish and unnerving about PP parts. I agree, 5 is a little young, maybe 8 through 12 might be more appropiate.

I went to a catholic school and believe it or not, they start sex eduaction in the first grade. Its not graphic or anything, you learn that mommies and daddies make a baby when they are in love and they showed a picture of the baby in the mothers womb, and explain in little kid terms how the mom feeds it and how it grows. You know, simple stuff.

Then by fourth grade we were drawing and labeling genitals. Of course we were giggling the whole time and making fun, because we were silly, but we learned about all of that. About periods and erections and ovulation and the basics of baby making, in a purely biological way.

And we were also told numerous times, "BUT DONT DO IT UNTIL YOU ARE MARRIED!!" by eighth grade we were having the sperate girls and boys health classes where we watch birth videos and talk about tampons etc.

It was really not a big deal.
And let me tell you... from my highschool graduating class, there was only i think one or possibly two pregnant girls from a class of about 60, where as compared to my cousins who just gradated last year, a class of 30 students had 7 teenage moms or moms - to- be.

I know its anecdotal, but I do think there is something to it.

I'm sure that baby nursing doll is going to be fast to go, too. Even though I thought it was a good idea.

Where is that thread...

www.abovetopsecret.com...

Another one where I was in the minority showing support. I wonder why that always happens to me.


haha dont worry i think I am in your same boat. I thought the breast feeding doll was a brilliant idea.

That's unfortunate.

Honestly by age 12 I think most kids know about everything. And some have even, well you know. Prevention is the key to... avoiding teenage pregnancy and things.

I'm 18, I joined this site when I was just a tad older than you.

Oh and my good friend who is a little younger than me is having a baby in a week.

Again, suppressing this stuff does not work.

Like kids need to be taught it. How clueless the UN is. Children touch themselves down there from infancy, its natural because they know no better. By the time they are 5, they are usually aware that that part of the body should not be touched in public, much like using the toilet is also a private affair.

They don't need to be taught this crap from a bunch of moony pervo teachers, its something they instinctively will learn and know on their own.

At that age, the only sex education kids should get is from their parents, when they ask the question of where babies come from.

Why do I get the feeling some organization like NAMBLA is behind this?

Geez, it's not like it says "UN wants to teach kids how to masturbate. They figure it out all by themselves and some at even a younger age. Don't ask how I know, but I know for sure


[Edit] Who is supposed to do the teaching anyway? Maybe they just want the parents to do it and to be aware that kids poke around with anything they can get their hands on?

When I did sex ed at high school I got kicked out and told I needed counseling because I laughed at genital herpes on a female and compared it to a Subway sandwich.

Just sayin'.

This is ridiculous. Parents should explain, if they will, what masturbation is.

However there is nothing wrong with self-stimulation; everybody does it. They should not be punished.

I suspect there are quite a few pedophiles in the ranks of the elite.

No I don't think there is anything at all wrong with telling a five year old that touching there is pleasurable. There IS something wrong with the U.N. thinking it is there responsibility to teach anything like that.

This is nothing compared to what our own public schools are teaching them. I don't know if it is even safe to say it here it is that controversial in many areas and from what I can glean from other posts who have attempted to, Ill just pass on the obvious rights they must have to lambaste anyone who objects to it with all kinds of names and just strongly urge anyone who would find the OP wrong, ought to check out there own kids education

Exposing the truth eh?

I'm not shocked, kids that age know more than people give them credit for. And if parents or teachers don't teach them about sex, they will learn it from somewhere else, and what they learn may not be right. So it's better to make sure what they learn is correct than make them learn it on the street because you want to wait until they are 14 before mentioning it.

I have 2 children, a boy aged 11 and a girl aged 8. Hubby and I have told both of them, upon noticing certain behavior when they were toddlers, that it's OK to touch yourself there and lots of people do it, just not in public, kind of like using the toilet as someone posted previously. I mentioned they could use either the bathroom or their bedroom for this activity. Since we're an "open door" family, I also told them to close the door and we would know they were having a private moment.

This may be serious TMI, feel free to scroll to the next paragraph, but I personally started masturbating with objects when I was about four. I grew up in a strict Roman Catholic home and was told that to touch myself there was "dirty". My mom even referred to female parts as "icky-doo", how lovely, no? When I got my period early at age 9, I was in school and afraid to tell my mom because I thought surely it was due to my private activities and I would be punished for it. I made a wad of toilet paper and stuck it in my panties. When I got home, I told my mom I thought I had a cut or something from wiping too hard. She was surprised, but had just the day before received one of those feminine-product sponsored "Mom and Daughter" packages which included a booklet and samples of pads. No tampons because "good girls" didn't stick things up there. O_O *eye roll*

If parents the world over were teaching their children sufficiently about sex, I would be adamant that the U.N. butt out, HOWEVER, I know this is not the case. Many parents do not want to, or are not comfortable teaching their children about sex matters and would RATHER have the school do it. I have seen this in 2 parent families as well as in single parent families where the child is the opposite sex of the single parent.

I think a certain basic knowledge, based on a child's maturity (not age) would be appropriate. I am a former elementary teacher, and I'd say from experience that many 5 year olds are curious and want to know where babies come from and how the baby got inside the mommy's tummy to begin with. Those children who lived on farms, or had pets of different sexes usually figured it out on their own.

I know this is probably opening a gigantic can of worms, but in addition to the "harmful traditional practice" of female genital mutilation, I believe male genital mutilation should also be addressed.

As if our schools aren't dumbing down enough already.

-sigh-

Class? Can you say, "home school?"


I agree that American schools are getting worse and worse over the years. Our students are NOT in any way prepared to compete on the global level in ANY subject. This is one of many reasons I have chosen to homeschool our children through a public cyber charter school. Financially, it's very difficult, VERY difficult, but I'm pleased with the curriculum, the children are doing well (both are reading above level, and son is in advanced science courses), and the flexibility can't be beat.

==stepping off soapbox now==
Next? :-)

I must be one of those people that grew up under a rock! I knew nothing about sex until we were taught it in school when I was 12. Then we had another group of lessons at 13. I just don't see a reason for telling kids stuff like this before they need to know. I'm only going by my own experience so it may be way off from most people's experience.
