  • Because once you drop your kids at the schoolhouse door, they're no longer yours. The government has control over them, which is why we homeschool our children.

  • Because it is not your right to deny your minor child sex. Even though condoms aren't even 90% effective at stopping STDs or pregnancy although, the "safe sex" advocates will tell CHILDREN that they are.

  • Good point, Matthewscandi! There is a lot of misinformation being presented to kids even in formal sex-ed.

    Bethsunshine, you hit the nail on the head! We aren't homeschooling, but we do reject the public schools for pretty much the same reason.

  • Politics. Power struggles....eventually you won't be signing a consent form for sex ed.

  • Excellent point, giggle (can I call you that?). My DD is starting kindergarten at a parochial (Catholic) school this year, and DS will go there, too. I don't think it will be so much of an issue there. I am a nurse, so I plan on teaching the kids the pros and cons of all forms of birth control (because none of them is perfect). I personally feel that abstinence until marriage is best, but the kids will decide for themselves what they will do. We only have these few years of influence, then we have to hope that we equipped them to make good decisions.

  • Isn't it a part of teh sex ed?

    In my hs our parents didnt have to sign anything,,,it was taught in health class

    Nothing about morality, just the facts about STD's, pregnancy and prevention and the ramification of the decision of having sex, which could mean a life long STD or your LIFE
