Well to be completely honest, I was taught about what I needed to know about sex, and I think its pretty stupid as the people who comes in actually promotes it by saying 'be completely safe and use protection' and 'if anything goes wrong like pregnancy you can call this number or visit their website and you'll get information about different type of abort**ns etc'. And then they explain the risks of having unprotected sex and protected sex.
I mean if i was clueless. I'll see sex as nothing more but an education and something that just happens, but my my sister told me when i was just small about it as my mum was far away for her to explain it to me, so i think its best if parents teach their children about it as they can tell them why they did it, and what its for, the risk if not being careful and plus it makes their relationship stronger between parents and their kids; as their children can tell their parents if they're being pressured or tempted in anyway, rather than having a complete stranger talking about them like its nothing.
I don't think parents really think about what the schools are teaching the kids. They just assume that the schools are giving them all the needed info. My middle school didn't teach me anything about safe sex except for abstinence. They didn't go over STDs until high school, and even then they didn't go over all the different forms of birth control/protection, only abstinence. Elementary school probably taught me the most, they passed out pads and explained periods to the girls. It may be easier to let the schools teach them, but it is not the best way. If the parent really wants to avoid talking about it with their kids, then they should find out what the school is teaching, make sure they agree with it, and make sure their kid is getting ALL the information before deciding to let the school take the role as parent.
I was taught by the school system. I've also always been very studious and a pretty good reader, so I learned a lot through books as well. I don't regret the way I was taught, especially since I was raised in one of the top school districts in the country. I wouldn't have been comfortable with my parents trying to teach me everything I learned. I am aware that some children have not received adequate information from their schools and may receive mixed information from peers, but that was not the case with me. I also preferred receiving my education from educators that were certified in these subjects than receiving it from my parents, who received much less teaching in this subject over 20 years ago.
I dunno! I mean i think lettn the school system teach kids isnt bad,i mean thats how i was thought and i knw that if my parents sat me down for that conversation id be so embarrassed! Parents might want to teach em themselves,but alot of the time they cant because their kids dont want to hear it from them...i mean c'mon,its guna be pretty uncomfortable for em. I say let the system,its no difference,and if ever unsure,you always have your parents to go to either way. Also,with all the crap on t.v and what kids know at such a young age these days...theres no need for parental explanation..
Depends. I was taught by the school system. I probably have a deeper understanding of the reproductive system (including the hormonal system) than many adults. I dont see how being a parent magically makes you an expert in anatomy. We also learned about the different contraceptives and what not. It was all part of my biology lecture. I guess if you are around a school system you can trust to teach these things then I dont see why it should be an issue. I never talked to my parents about sex, and I never want to talk to them about it.
Lazy and irresponsible parenting. Sex, reproduction, safe sex, etc should be taught by the parents. Its your children and your responsibility, and it also falls back on your when your teenager comes home pregnant and need help raising the child or paying for the ab.ortion. Yes, its an uncomfortable conversation and isnt fun, but its your job as a parent to teach your children these things and help them prevent making mistakes that could ruin their lives.
well, the school system didnt teach me, and neither did my parents. i told them i wasnt ready to hear it. because that stuff is nasty. i hate even typing this because i know what its about. but my parents are WAY to busy to talk to me anyway. my mom has work and sleeps, and my dad works in oklahoma and comes home once every few weeks or months. so its kind of hard for them to tell me what it is.
I really don't care. I teach myself most things like I taught myself how to defend to fight and I learned about sex by myself and knew everything before everyone else. I was ready while the others were still waiting for the school or their parents.
If you learned from your peers and/or the internet, then you are not receiving your information from reliable sources. Some kids that are educated this way actually believe stupid myths such as the one that states condoms are 100% effective.
Nowadays, I dont even think kid's need to be told the facts of life, they just know them because of their friends and stuff. I was never told by my parents or teachers and I know about the facts of life.
I think they are lazy and don't really care about what their kids learn.Like it is just stupid.You are the parent at least teach your kid something.
that they dont know how to raise a child.. the child didnt get born to go to school they were born to be raised by there parent...not there teacher
I completely agree, as this was the case with me.
