No, they don't teach that here until like 5th or 6th grade.

No, but I'm talking to my own kids about sex and they are actually in K and 3rd. 

At this point, I'm just answering questions honestly without going into a huge amount of detail. But my kids have a good grasp of how babies are made, they know all the appropriate words for body parts and they use them, and they know about different genders and have a good grasp about LBGQT identities. 

The more you talk about it and normalize it, the more the kids listen, ask questions, and make the right decision for them later on, instead of just doing it because they get pressured to by a boyfriend or girlfriend, or get pressured to do it because everyone else is.

Not that I'm aware of...mine are homeschooled so I'd have to ask my BFF.. Considering her 11 year old has been studying genes the past few weeks and still doesn't understand sex, I would guess not.

My kids were in a Catholic school during those grades.  I think they did education about safe touch and things like that.  Nothing about puberty or sex at those grades.

No

My oldest is in 4th grade and they just had a lesson on puberty a couple weeks ago. That's the first thing like that the elementary school has done.

Nope, not until 5th grade and even then they are only taught puberty at that point.
