When Should Sex Education be Introduced to Kids?
I would really be happy to know about your opinions about teaching sex education to kids of 7 or 8 years of age.
As I could remember, I learned about the reproductive system when I was in 4th grade. But that was basically Science and was part of teaching students about our body's systems and their Functions (ex. Digestive system, Excretory, Respiratory, etc.).
I was a bit shocked to know that there are some schools nowadays that promote and even implement sex education in their curriculum. To pre-teens sure or to teenagers, sure that is what should be nowadays.. but with kids who know only about barbies and gi joe's, it is kind of a real shock to me.
Are kids too young to know about sex or due to the increase in sex related crimes or the sort these days, sex education should become part of every talk during dinner.. even with 7 or 8 year old kids around.
Hope to hear from all of you.
