Should schools teach children about puberty and sex?

  • It certainly should be.

    When i was in elementary school, kids started passing rumors about sex and puberty, and girls started to "experiment". At one point, they gave us kids the talk early because one girl got pregnant at the end of 3rd grade. She didn't terminate it either, so she was literally a 4th grade mom. Her parents must have been pretty stupid, so schools should be able to tell kids about the birds and the bees.

  • Yes they should

    Students being taught about puberty is necessary because some parents do not. This can leave young girls believing that they are dying because blood is coming out of their vagina for no reason. Sexual education is important because if taught correctly, it can lower the rate of stds and teen pregnancy.

  • Yes , They Should.

    I think they should teach students about sex and a safe sex life . These days kids are having unprotected or unsafe sex and it is leading towards pregnancy. After the child gives birth, they loose the chance of having a good education and having a good job. Some parents don't talk to their kids about sex. They don't educate them, so the children end up having in-protected sex. So if schools teach them more it will be good.

  • Yes they should, we cannot have any more ignorant children.

    Yes they should! That information may be some of the most important information that you will ever know. I know a couple of girls, and they are in eighth grade, and they still don't know about sex. Their periods? They believe that they just have a disease. These girls are the daughters of a couple mothers I know, and they refuse to teach them about sex. They are so incredibly naïve and innocent... I don't know how long they will last before they are cruelly and abruptly shown the secret world by their peers.

  • Yes they should

    There is absolutely no guarantee that the parents of the child will teach them, so yes, the schools should. And I don't think parents should be making such a big fuss over it either. Sex and puberty are completely natural occurrences, that everyone experiences (puberty anyway :P) and there should be no reason to refrain from teaching it in school. Anymore, most kids learn it from other kids before they learn it in schools, so I really don't understand why this should be an issue at all.

  • Bad Things Come Of Rumors

    If you don't come right out and teach the children the truth about these subjects, they will be confused. One or two students in a grade or class will start rumors about them and the students will be confused and misinformed. Students are often squeamish about sex and puberty and so will not ask their parents questions. Therefore we wind up with a whole generation of misinformed teens who are then more likely to have questions and not know what is happening to their bodies.

  • It Should Be Touched On

    Schools should talk about puberty and sex to students. They should make them aware of changes in the body associated with puberty as well as the pros and cons of having sex. School might be the only place that some students will get that type of information so I see no problem with it.

  • Everyone goes through it and everyone needs to know about it.

    Sure, it might be akward the first time... But after a few lessons it just becomes normal. Those people who don't think it should be taught don't realise how important it is to learn about it. Also, school isn't all about curriculm because life isn't all about work. People at my school get the "TALK" too :)

  • They should be so they could be prepared

    I am in eighth grade so in my school we try to act mature however, a friend of mine she knew about her period just because i told her. It seemed that her mom was embarrassed that she never told her and well now mostly of our school gets the "TALK"

  • It's sort of a touchy subject.

    Parents and other close relatives may talk about it, but puberty is a personal thing. Schools should teach stuff that will impact on the teen's grades, not something inappropriate like puberty and sex. Kids and teens will soon realize what is changing in their bodies. I say that it is a bit edgy for schools to teach about private things like this.

  • No, sex is a personal issue

    Parents nor schools need to have "the talk" with children. People will naturally ask questions IF THEY FEEL IT IS COMFORTABLE. But when you force the issue on children, they're going to be very uncomfortable, because in that case, it's about authority and submission to that authority. The children will naturally ask questions themselves, don't force the issue on them. They will learn it one way or another, but the healthiest way is to just let them decide when it is right to talk about it. If you feel you have to force the issue on them, it's probably because you're a shitty parent who has oppressed and repressed your own children subliminally on the ideas of sexuality and think adding more fuel to the already burning fire of misery by forcing them to talk about sex is going to fix it. Get off the high horses, idiots. Let the children decide. They don't need authoritarian, hilteranian teachers and parents teaching them about something that should just come natural. It only helps to convince them that they're either stupid or not good enough to do ANYTHING themselves, because when you attack their self-contained ability to be sexually responsible, it is hard for them to believe ANYTHING ELSE they do in their lives is ever going to be good enough for anyone.

  • Schools should not teach children about puberty and sex.

    No, I do not believe that it is the role of schools to teach children about the roles of puberty and sex since schools should be focused on other key academic areas. Schools should leave the issues of puberty and sex to the parental units of children and instead the schools should focus on subjects such as math and science for children.
