Sex education and children, if ever there was a topic that brought about more of the hypocrisy in the USA it is those 2 topics. Here is the problem
in a nut shell.
Children will explore, and will do such in all manner of topics and items. The issue here is how to teach children about sex. Parents are not doing
such, as the statistics show through teenage pregnancies, and the rates of STD’s among children. Parents turn around and look at the department of
education and say teach our children, and the department of education sets forth a standard that parents object to. See the viscous cycle building up
The solution is one of 2 possible means, the first is for the parents to sit down with their children and talk to them about sex, and what all goes
into it, along with the responsibility for their actions. The other is if the parents do not want to do such, leave it to the schools to do such, but
at the same time, as harsh as this may be, perhaps being graphic may be the way to go, if they want to promote waiting until marriage, but putting the
fear of the possibilities into the childs mind and showing actual pictures of what the disease is and how it looks on the human body.
But it means also being honest with the children, and not telling them things that are not true either.
