Sex Ed in school..

[deleted account] ( 7 moms have responded )

I am so disturbed by this. No kid 5 yrs old should know anything about sex. Even teaching 10 yr old different sex positions is totally wrong. I am so against this! Sex education is the parent's responsibility, not the schools. The kids are in school to learn to read, write, math, stuff like that. They are not there to learn about sex!!
My daughter starts kindergarten this fall & I will be sure to ask if they do a sex ed program & make sure my child does not participate.

Whether they teach different sexual positions or not, I do not believe it is the school's business to tell me when or how to tell my children about sex. I actually believe that the churches should step up to the plate and teach EVERYONE about the beauty of sex between a husband and a wife, but also the value of abstinence until you are married. When I was young NO ONE wanted to tell us about it! All I heard was 'don't get pregnant!' Did anyone actually tell me why I shouldn't do it? No! Did anyone tell me that guys would use whatever method at hand to get you to? No. Because I was desperate to get out of the house, and even desperater to have a boyfriend, I was pregnant at 15.

I believe we, as parents, and the church body, at large, have dropped the ball. So, you who have some sphere of influence at your churches, talk to the pastor! Talk to the youth leader! Someone needs to tell these young people that they are wrecking themselves! Who knew that each time we 'hooked up', we left a piece of ourselves with the guy, and we took a little bit of them with us until after 10 or so encounters we weren't whole? Why isn't someone telling us that no guy is worth giving our self-esteem, our virginity, our hopes and tears to on the off-chance some bum is gonna marry us? Why doesn't someone tell us marriage isn't like on the soap operas, and if you don't choose an honest God-fearing guy that we're going to go through a lifetime of misery?

God gave us a guide book for love and happiness, but no one wants to read it, cuz certainly God doesn't know about such things. So we read man's words and man's advice, not thinking that Man thinks about sex something like 3 times a minute! Are they going to give us the straight scoop? Only God tells us to go take a cold shower!

Before the 40s, most people married very young. The same was in Bible days. This was for the exact same purpose--lust. Children were educated so that when they were 13, they were considered adults (Bar-mitzvah for boys, Bat-mitzvah for girls). And this has worked out well for thousands of years. While in the sexual prime, you had a wife and husband. You got married, and you stayed married. You worked out stuff and raised children to work stuff out. We modern people have 'evolved' to the point where, at 18, when the law says we're adults, we are still 12. People are waiting to get married until their 30s and 40s, after having had one disastrous relationship after another. Each relationship takes baggage into the next.

I'm sorry to have made one topic into multiples, but this all goes together. I mourn for today's young people who are desperately searching through sexual encounters for something only God can give them.

Pray about this, ladies. God bless.

sex ed doesn't teach different sex positions it teaches about the changes kids go through and give kids an outlet to ask questions they may not feel comfortable asking their parents. i do not agree with giving it to very young kids or forcing a kid to take it but it should be out there for kids that are ready. the more we hide what is going on the worse it is in the long run.

Most of the time it isn't sex they are talking about but the changes that your body is going through and puberty. But what they don't realize is that most girls start puberty at the age of 7 or 8 and already know most of what they talk about. I recommend the book from American Girl called The Care and Keep of you. It talks about all the changes the girls will go through and is very detailed and you may want to read with and answer any questions. The sex talk should be the parents and the need to be open and honest. Answer the questions in the way you think your children can take it and don't go any farther then what they ask. Somethings they are just not ready to know. Hope this helps and God Bless

The days of opting out your children is gone, sweeties! That's one of the reasons so many people are choosing to homeschool their children. They take our darling little innocents and plant stuff they are not ready for. Explore your options for public school, lovies, this is unacceptable!

The school has the school nurse do this, its set aside that is optional to be part of. Sex Ed normally don't come into play till about 5th or 6th grade, depends on were you live. My daughter was in 4th grade last year and I let her do the video of the female body changing and what will come and how to take actions towards it. Normally the Sex Ed is done during PE time, well here were I live they do the class instead of PE time and its optional to take. If you choose not to have your child take the course then they go to a study hall instead of PE for those days.
