Do you think that they should be teaching kids these things as early as 4th grade? Its important to know, but don't you think it may give kids ideas?

I worked in an after day care this whole summer and I came to one realization: Kids are dumb.
I'm 19 years old. My generation when we were in elementary school were a lot wiser than then today's generation. We were smarter and we were also sexually "ready" what have you.
I first started to get sex education in THIRD GRADE. That's how mature we were physically and mentally. Third grade.
Today, I see little kids in 5th grade and I think to myself my generation were a lot bigger and smart than these kids when we were in 5th grade.
My generation handled sex ed.
Its hard to admit it, but he is saying the truth, kids are way too dumb.
I don't think this one will.
But on the flip side of the coin,I know that in Britain the kids are given basic education, but it still doesnt stop Britain from now having the largest teen pregnancy rate in Europe.
