Those should be the main focuses and the acknowledgment that sex and the human body are a normal thing......stay informed.....No means No.....and talk to a trusted loved one or parent...
And btw.....I walked in on my dad and his girlfriend when I was twelve only because the sounds made me think they were "fighting" (which was not the norm in our house) and I subsequently walked around confused for three days. So i know the consequences of No Communication about Sex.edit on 9-3-2011 by MrEuphoric1 because: (no reason given)

If any of this crap was being taught to my little brother, you'd better believe all hell would break loose. Maybe some of you don't care about your kids, that's your freakin problem. But don't you dare try to infiltrate the innocense of my little brothers mind. All he needs to worry about is being a normal kid. He's 7 by the way. You all need to seriously get a freakin clue!!

I think we need to consider WHY children are being distracted and sexualised in this manner
Once a child's innocence is stolen........it remains stolen
With very great respect, Mike, how do you or we know that the people who take these decisions are well qualified to take them?
In the UK the sex education has rocketed at school, and along with it has the underage pregnancy rates.
WE have had 'qualified' teachers, 'qualified' nursery nurses etc, convicted of being pedophiles and preying on our children, so how can we be so sure that those at the top of the heap are any better?
To many honest people this seems totally wrong.
in reality sex education has NOT improved the lives of our children as in their minds, once it is taught and they are 'educated' on the subject they appear to believe it is something they SHOULD be doing and they then wreck their lives being distracted by pointless relationships and their own nether regions rather than their education.
