What do you think about sex ed ?

What I mean by this is simple I'm not talking about teachers talking to elementary school kids about sex and condoms, I'm talking about high school kids. Let's be ralistic kids are becoming sexually active at a younger age now then before.

I'm sick of hearing people complain about pregnant teens and how its t.v's, or celebs fault. But the parents didn't want to talk about sex, didn't want to give the school permission to talk to them and TEACH them the dangers of sex and how to be responsible if they choose to have sex.

I believe that if you are uncomfrable or just don't know how to talk about this subject to your child, why not let the people we are sending our children off too everyday give them the facts and help inform them of the risks, and options there are for them.

I had sex ed during part of my Health class in jr. high, and then again in sr. high. I think it's fine to have sex ed in jr/sr high, but I also think it's the parents' responsibility to ensure they're educated so they can protect themselves from disease and pregnancy.

I think Sex ed should be inforced in health class and in biology just like it was when I was in school! I'm sorry but in middle school they sat us in the auditorium and showed us a film on STD's and that ALONE was enough to scare us into waiting to have sex.. Aside from the fact that I am amazed of the number of women/girls that do not understand how their body ( periods and ovulation) works!  I think Sex Ed. is a very important part of health and biology classes!

This. Sex ed is fine in my view but I think it's beyond sad that PARENTS aren't taking more responsibility in teaching their children how to be responsible.

I feel that the parents should talk to the child about sex but having it also talked about in school and talked about over and over about protection, std's and consequences is a good thing.. it may not keep the kid from having sex but the kid will be well educated..

My little brothers were born in Germany and the older one started sex ed in 2nd grade. The std and birth rate among teens is so much lower over there. I think schools should get realistic and at least stop teaching only abstinance. They need to get real and teach kids something useful. My kids will be getting the sex talk by at least 8 yrs old.

They started in my nephew's kindergarten class last year. Not too graphic and they talked about baby animals and human babies. It is never too early.

 Never is it to early to teach kids about the consequences of sex and what precautions should be taken if they do decide to have sex!!

Sex ed isn't like this graphic porno class... all they talk about is the reproductive system. My only problem is that most school systems only allow "abstinence only" teaching. I didn't learn about condoms in school... I just happened to learn about them out and about. Something like 70% of pregnant teens were having COMPLETELY unprotected sex... when your only learning that NOT having sex is the only answer, what do you expect?

we will be talking and talking over and over. And telling and showing her what could happen. And if she does become active (witch i pray she does not)i will teach her to protect herself. So that nothing happens.

In my opinion, I believe that it is the parents' responsibility to teach their child/ren about sex more than it is for the school.
