Get Ready To Be Horrified At What Schools Are Telling Kids About Sex


On a scale from 1 to 10 on the WTF meter, this is pretty much off the charts. Millions of kids are sitting in classrooms this school year where they could be taught inaccuracies about HIV and sex. Folks, it's clear we are doing it wrong. I don't know about you, but I think we owe it to kids to tell them the truth so they are not surprised by an unwanted pregnancy or an STD. Can't we at least get on board with that idea?

If you think sex education is as important as I do, join me in keeping our kids safe and share this information.

  Simple take the effective sex education from Denmark and make it mandatory for all schools.  If a parent refuses and their child become pregnant they bear the entire cost.  Money as incentive will stop this stupidity.

Schools had better get it right because kids need the accurate truth. You know parents quite often won't discuss the facts with their kids or they're ignorant and can't do it right.
That's why so many teens have sex when they're too young . Too many girls get pregnant . Lack of knowledge will cause a spread of disease.
This is incredibly important.

WTF with not requiring the information be medically accurate? 

Seriously?

I don't rely on my kid's school to teach sex education I teach them what they need to know myself. Always open and honest with my children.

The problem is a LOT of parents don't or won't or can't do it themselves.

Are we shocked our country has incredibly high rates of teen pregnancy and STD's?  We shouldn't be.

An interesting concept.  An Denmark's rate of teen pregnancy is significantly lower than ours.

I went to school in two of the states shown as no needing to teach it nor teach anything 'medically accurate'.  We were REQUIRED to take sex ed every year from 5th through 12th grade in both states and both were very comprehensive and accurate.  I tend to believe the Huff Post as an unbiased news source as much as Fox.
