Parenting & Sex
My child’s school is teaching them about sex and I don’t like it, what should I do?
Teaching youngsters about sex and sexual health, contrary to popular belief, generally slows the process of their experimenting since they are no longer as inquisitive. It also prevents unwanted outcomes such as early pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Throughout the student's grade levels, comprehensive sexual health education covers a variety of themes. It can help young people avoid negative health consequences, communicate about sexuality and sexual health, understand healthy and unhealthy relationships, understand, value, and feel autonomy over their bodies, and respect others' right to bodily autonomy, among many other benefits.
