They are in an uproar in MT over this proposal. It would start teaching kids sex education at the age of 5 and by the time they are 10 they would learn about sexual positions and "objects" that can be used. Personally I think that is too much information at that young of an age. What do you think?

"Parents are failing, it's not about the importance of sex, but the reality of it. Everyone does it, and it's becoming increasingly dangerous, our kids are NOT getting the knowledge they need from their parents. "
Really? Everyone? Including yourself? Then how can you expect teachers to do a good job? Those same teachers are PARENTS, who according to your statement, are failing to educate their own children about sex.

I disagree with the "parents are failing" attitude. Why don't we deal with the few that are failing, rather than make sweeping generalizations.
Some parents feed their kids crap, but we don't take away parent's right to feed their kids. We don't need to give that responsibility to schools. Some parents are distant, overworked, stressed-out, alcoholic, or have mental deficiencies. All these things can be problems for a child, yet we still allow parents to parent.
Not to mention, many teachers are far from perfect, and won't neccessarily a better job than the parents.

I think my children would not be attending that. It's my job and not the govt to teach my children about such things. Looking at my 10 year old son across the room, we just went over reproduction with him not long ago, in no way did we even NEED to mention positions. Why are sexual positions and that kind of activity vital to 10 year olds? They need to learn about their bodies yes, but that's taking it way too far. I realize there are some parents that don't do their job...which sucks even more for their kids when they have to go to school and learn this BS.
