Like everything that we've made taboo, sex happens every day between high schoolers and even sometimes among middle schoolers. It's a good age to teach them consequences and best practices to have sex safely. Since they're going to do it whether it's taught or not, it's only beneficial to teach them the lay of the land at a time just before they are likely to engage.
A basic form of sex education is recommended in middle school. Without a doubt, students need to start learning about their bodies and the consequences of sex at a young age. Otherwise, they might grow up and make some huge mistakes that are completely avoidable with this basic knowledge about sex.
I definitely think that sex education should be taught in middle school. It is important to teach kids at that critical age about sex whether or not they are ready for it. Kids needs to be educated about sex before it happens so that they can be prepared and make good safe choices.
Yes, sex education should be taught in middle school, because by middle school, young people need to know that information. For some, sexual behavior starts around that age, and students need information in order to be able to make good choices. It is also a good time to educate young people on dangerous behaviors.
Middle school is the perfect time to start teaching sex education. That's the age when kids start to get hormonal as they begin to gradually turn into adults. Initially, sex ed should be the basics until high school. Then, more concepts can be introduced such as homosexuality, orgasm, and the like.
Yes sex education should be taught in middle school. Getting the information out there early may help some students make smarter choices in the long run. You don't wait to teach drug education until drugs are already part of life so sex should not be any different. Sometimes education is prevention
I believe that middle school is the right time for children to be taught sex education because some of them are already sexually active. This will teach them about sex if they choose to be active and will hopefully prevent unwanted pregnancies. This will also keep the poverty rate in America down as statistics show that teenage parents are more likely to raise their children in poverty stricken environments.
No, no, and no! Stop sexualizing kids, stop pushing them into adulthood when they are not ready for it! Kids should be kids. They need to play, read, explore the world and NOT worry about what's "sexy". This word has replaced "pretty", "nice", "beautiful"... It sounds stupid and disgusting in the mouth of a little kid.
