Speaking of sex ed and what kids do not know.............
My daughter was just telling me about a friend and what happened in PE today.
One of the girls asked another if they had a pad and some how they got on the topic of their periods, which lead to one girl talking about pregnancy and how the female body works, etc.
B told the girls that she had no idea that is why women have periods and she knew nothing about how all of that played in to getting pregnant.
A few other girls heard and began to make fun of her for not being aware. They asked her why she did not pay attention in sex ed class back in 6th grade. She told them her parents would not allow her to be there. Two of the girls began to really poke at her. My daughter and another student took B with them and they left the building, as B was crying. They went to the office and explained what happened. The office called B's mom.
A prime example of why sex ed in schools is so important. If the parent fails to parent the child needs to know the facts. Being made fun of because you are unaware.......why would you want to put your child in such a position?
