Although most parents probably think their five-year-olds are learning the basics like phonics and how to count to 20 in kindergarten, the public school system in Chicago apparently believes ‘the basics’ also include sex education.

According to a local CBS affiliate, a new public school mandate will involve 300 minutes of sexual health education for kindergarteners:



Sex Ed for Younger Kids? Yes, read all about it here.

Okay, so, I definitely agree that children should be educated regarding sex but that lesson should be taught by parents! Especially at such a young age! I feel very uncomfortable having a stranger talked to my kids about these things. What if the one doing the teaching is some sexually-depraved individual? I don't care how many fingerprints or how many criminal background checks are made on these staff members...Some might be really well with deceiving the public and the law! Call me paranoid, but, that's the way I see this! I certainly disagree with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. I think I have EVERY fundamental right to educate my kids regarding sex and this, when I feel they are ready for that lesson!

Did you even read the article?
I doubt the lessons will even mention sex.


CPS insists the curriculum will use language children understand and focus on topics like bullying, correct names for external body parts and the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching.



Parents are encouraged to review the curriculum. If they’re uncomfortable with any lesson, their child can opt out of that class.

Yes, I read the article. I wasn't concerned about bullying or the like because obviously, children should learn how to socialize with their peers. What struck me as upsetting was this:


There is no fundamental right of parents to be the exclusive provider of information regarding sexual matters to their children… Parents have no due process or privacy right to override the determinations of public schools as to the information to which their children will be exposed. - See more at: www.thedailysheeple.com...



Still, Chicago’s sex ed plan sounds slightly more conservative than a universal lesson plan released by the United Nations Social and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) back in 2009. Apparently the U.N. recommended that even pre-Kindergarteners should learn about masturbation, concepts like “transphobia” should be introduced and kids as young as nine should be taught about legal abortions. UNESCO insisted the plan was “age-appropriate”. - See more at: www.thedailysheeple.com...


That's where I have a problem with it. I don't think these topics are "age-appropriate". That's my P.O.V.

This is wrong.....I really just don't know what else to say. This is too close to Huxley's vision in A Brave New World and I am not okay with it.

Kids at that age should be playing with dolls, or gi joe's, not learning about sex ed. Kids should already have the knowledge of what their privates are called, nicknames, that no one should touch them there etc.... They most certainly shouldn't be thinking about each others privates at such a young age. Remember the giggles and whispers from eighth grade? These kids are less than half that age, really is it necessary........hell no!

I agree that it is getting out of control. We homeschool our children. We have seen enough from public school. But the flip side is in relation to the question in the OP... Shouldn't parents be teaching their children these things? Yes, but how many parents even care about their children? How many of them even SEE their children or want them around?

Give it a few years and they'll just show them soft porn and get right to the point. It'll have all the 'sexy' quality of a 'Joy of Sex' video (almost clinical), but they'll show them full intercourse from start to finish. There are even medical/academic level videos of, we might say, the inside and out.

I can really see that being argued for inclusion in the classroom within 5-10 years, at the rate we're going. They ARE appropriate at University level for courses that touch on it, but not grade school. Give it time though.

What a brave new world. (sigh)

The Soviets used to say 'give me the boy and I'll make you the man'.

Well you're right, but the sad reality is that a lot of kids become sexually active not long after kindergarden. It's not always full blown intercourse, but they're doing stuff. Might as well teach them what's what because parents aren't talking to them about it. All they know about sex is what other kids at school are saying and what they are looking at online (It starts with a p and ends with orno).
