    Mine Was Pretty Good..

    We had the puberty talk at Intermediate - so that was when I was 12. I learnt about sexual reproduction stuff in Science in 3rd form - so that’s the egg+*****=baby, when I was 13. Even went as far as watching a birthing vid - disturbing! I learnt about STIs and contraception...

    It Can't Be Stopped

    Abstinence only sex education is a joke, in my opinion. I don't think that teens should be having casual sex, but it simply can't be stopped. As parents I think we need to talk to our children openly and honestly about sex and their changing bodies. It isn't something that should...

    They Need All the Information We Can Give Them...

    Admittedly, this may be a little out of date now as I left high school almost six years ago, but the sex education in my school was really appalling.   I'm English, so please bare with me while I struggle to equate ages with 'years' on behalf of people who work on the...

    Indeed

    Sex and Health Education at my school were rolled into two afternoons and two videos with very little dialogue.  The first video was what smoking did to lungs and the second was an ultrascan showing an abortion.   Sex was for after marriage alone, hence we needed to...

    Too Much Information?

    Wow, if there had only been the Internet and online sex sites when I was 12! I've written about a young boy I was asked to spend time with and try to give him a better male role model than he was getting with his blood relatives. I met him just before he turned 12.  His first...

    Yep

    Did you know some schools loose their Government Funding if they teach anything other than abstinence? Thats fine for schools that don't need that funding they can teach what they want. I'm talking about lowering STD's, Lowering abortions. I want all teenagers to learn about safe...

    I Got The Best Education Possible!

    I started with my sex ed innocently at first when two of the neighborhood girls challenged me to a game of "show me yours, we will show you ours". Games most kids play but this time was different, we were all just curious but for the first time we were also sexually aroused but...

    My Daughter's

    I have two girls.  One I gave birth to and the other one is my best friend's (Zuzu was her name)  daughter that my husband and I took in five years after the mother died.  I sat them both down and I said, "Listen, if some little boy wants you sexually and you want him sexually...

    Knowledge V. Ignorance

    Teens are sexually active. Its a reality that people need to acclimate themselves to. So, why wouldn't you do everything you possibly could to make sure that they're being as safe as possible by making sure that they know everything they need too about sex? Its unreasonable to...

    If They Are Going to Tell the Story Then They Need to Tell It All

    My daughter is in the ninth grade this year.  She has been bringing home a note every year since the fourth grade for me to give permission for her to take "reproductive health". I've never had a problem with her taking the class.  My issue has always been...

    My One Sex Ed Class

    I only ever had 2 classes of sex education, one was when i was in year 6 and it wasn't really about sex, it was just a class for girls to learn about periods. The second one was when i was in year 10, and it was pathetic. Not only had most of the kids in that class already...

    Unlike Sarah Palin

    I think its pretty hypocritical that a mother of a pregnant teenager promotes abstinence only sex education. How well did that work in her home? My high school only offered sex ed through one class: Family and Consumer Sciences. Without that elective, you received no...

    Pre Marital 'sex' Education

    When my husband Mark and I got married, the Assistant Pastor (my husband's foster father was the Senior Pastor of this church), had us in for 'pre-marriage' counseling.  It was a real hoot.  Mark and I attended this church, but it was not like we were overly religious.  First...

    The Best Sex Ed

    The best sex ed is the kind that is integrated into everything. Sex is a normal and ordinary part of life, not some strange thing that needs special handling. Teach kids about sex as part of their day to day learning, the same way they learn about everything else. When the...

    Teenagers Deserve Better...

    As do all kids! And I don't believe that this stops at sex ed.  I think that this goes far deeper, touching on health education! I am not sure what other states have as their requirements, but in Illinois, health must be taught for one semester in high school.  That's...

    Safe Sex Is Saved Sex!

    thats what I was taught. Only ***** have sex before theyre married. Men only want you for sex. Sex is dirty and horrible. No matter what if you have sex before you're married you will get pregnant and have every STD known to man. Sex before marriage will buy you a one way ticket...
