    Advertisements
    Do you think sex ed should be required in schools?

    Whatever your answer, please say why.


    (If this has already been done, sorry everyone!!!!)

    Poll coming!



    If you said no, and your child's school taught it, would you take your child out of school for that day?


    I have one this time, Poll!!!!

    It didn't let me post a poll.
    i'm kind of iffy on it. if it is the way it is now abstinence only---NO but if it will be comprehensive then absolutely. ultimately though it is not the school's responsibility to teach my child where a penis goes to make a baby, it's our responsibility (my husband and mine)

    I support sex ed, but only if its factual.
    I hate the idea that others can use it to try and push their version of morality off on children.

    I agree. I think abstinence only has no place in sex ed. Well, it isn't much of an education on sex if all that is said is to not have it in the first place. Comprehensive and age appropriate sex ed starting very early on, yes. While I too think that it is the parents responsibility, too many parents are not doing it, so someone has to step in.
    An unconditional right to say what one pleases about public affairs is what I consider to be the minimum guarantee of the First Amendment.

    I am for it. I just remember that some chick in my health class freshman year actually thought that if you jumped up and down after he came inside you you couldn't get pregnant I think it's beneficial. I don't think that abstinence only is a good idea though because there will still be kids who don't practice abstinence and they need to be educated about what they are doing too.

    Then again maybe I just support it because it's been 4 years since I had to take it and i've forgotten the complete and utter embarrassment and uselessness of it all...

    yep. i think abstinence should be a "part" of it, such as the only fool proof way to not have a child or get an std is abstinence, but if you are going to have sex here's how to be safe...."

    "That day?" Family Life Education should be a normal part of the curriculum beginning in Kindergarten, and it should be a lot more than just a day.

    I just said "that day" in general. For me, our sex ed was about one day. And it was in 5th grade.
