Are we teaching sex education too early?
An interesting topic gets brought up a fair bit that i thought we could talk about as i find it quite interesting
It is now recommended that children from the age of 5 and up should have sex and relationship education as part of their curriculum. Some people think this is too young and someone agree it could have its benefits.
Its worth noting that children from around 5 won't be learning about actual sex and more about what is a healthy relationship, the different relationships you may have(parents, siblings, uncles/aunts, etc) as well as what to call their body parts and that animals have babies.
From around 11 onwards its focused on reproduction, sexuality, and sexual health as well as safety.
The gov website states that this does not cause early sexual activity or any particular sexual orientation.
So where do you guys stand on it?
I'm interested to know if you went to school whether you had education too and felt it was good enough? or whether it needs to be better taught? maybe you got better advice from someone else?
Sexual health is a topic i find interesting because its good to talk about it but it can almost feel too taboo sometimes still in this day and age.I may make a few posts around it aha.
Remember to be respectful of others and most importantly to make sure any potentially triggering content is met with a warning.
I'll post my opinion in comments tomorrow
