Okay... I know many of you have different ideas about Sex Ed, but lets try to keep this civil!
What age should parents start "sex ed" at home and what should they cover?
What grade should "sex ed" be started in schools and what should be covered?
I think we all agree that the idea situation is that parents teach their kids everything that's needed to be taught. But since the vast majority do not sex ed in schools is a need... So what do you feel should be covered, by whom and when?

Right now my Son just turned 4 so if I tried to explain anything to him, I would probably get better results if I told the squirrel outside! LOL! I have no idea, I will just "know" when the time is right. I had sex ed in fifth grade and they just superficially covered how babies were born and periods. They split up the boys & girls into separate classes. We had no friggin idea what the hell they were talking about. That was around 1977. We just figured everything out on our own but life is very different today with the media and Internet. I cannot even fathom what kids know about today. It's scary. I feel a lot of kids are missing out on the childhood idea that ignorance is bliss. Like when I grew up.

I answer what ever question they come up with. age appropriate responses but i still tell him. if you hide it then when they get older they think they are doing something wrong. I remember in high school there was a girl (all books) her parents would not let her take sex ed. one day I saw her crying and when I asked what was wrong she said she was pregnant, she gave a guy a BJ. I spent a good hour trying to explain that her throat and womb were not connected. and I thought that this was very sad for her to be sheltered like that and she was almost an adult (17)
