    You forgot the 'Lol' at the end of it because you are definitely joking.

    Appropriate department/agency/organization set up for kids that specifically need it. Reproduction could be taught in school just like you teach about the nervous system, circulatory system etc. That is what I said. Anything you are assuming or adding is your issue. "Sex education" does not fall into that in my book. That is what IN MY OPINION the school should do. I can then choose as a parent to get to the other issues. The way I choose to say it to my child is totally my decision. Some families can choose to teach it as part of their religion as in "It is a sin". Some can take the route of tradition forbids it etc. Different things can work but at the end of the day the important issue here is that the message is sent. Telling kids where they can get condoms and possibly even how to use it is ridiculous especially coming from someone who is in no way invested in my child's life. Let me handle that myself

    rotflmao. I don't even what to think what you put them through. My aunty was actually the one who talked to me about the dangers of getting pregnant because she interecepted a letter some boy wrote me when I was in JSS3. She was actually a biology teacher so she kind of started the conversation with what happens if I have sex and miss my period. Still Ewww even today LOL. I truly believe that it is not what the child hears in sex education in school that makes a diifference. It is what the child hears at home. I hope my child will feel free to discuss openly with me and if I have to I will put my child on birth control and I will buy condoms if the worst comes to the worst. If we decide to go that route it would be a family decision

    Very easy kweshun!!!! First , You can start the narration from the sperm swimming to meet the egg and the acrosome of the sperm produces enzymes which allow it to burrow through the outer jelly coat of the egg. The sperm plasma then fuses with the egg's plasma membrane, the sperm head disconnects from its flagellum and the egg travels down the Fallopian tube to reach the uterus.
    Also let them know How each cells contains 23 chromosomes and how Mitosis takes place leading to genetic division contained in the DNA, then leading to occurrence of fertilization which forms a Zygote ................................... After this, you can then ask if the child wants to know any more:653::653:
















    on A more serious note tho,There's Age APPROPRIATE content/material, when it comes to sex. You should know what level of curiosity the child is. Sometimes when a child wants to know how babies are made, They do not really care about the coitus aspect of it, They just want to know how an egg grows in mommy's Tummy .

    But not every kid/child/teenager has such wonderful parents, and this is where the school comes in.

    Are they not offering Sex Education in schools already?

    Anyway, Sex Education will not increase teen's pregnancy; Sex Education will not increase STDs; so I don't see why they should not teach it in schools. Besides, it is an elective course anyway...kinda like PCD or Home Econs...you know...like that..

    Shouldn't they be asking parental consent to teach the rubbish they call sex ed in school? If you have the parent at home that wants to teach you, why must they be denied the privilege of teaching you themselves? The closest I had to sex education even in school is how to wear a pad on my period and that didn't make me curious because my parents spoke to me as early as possible, about unprotected sex. If parents know what they're doing, I don't see why they should stand for what they don't approve of being rammed down their children's throats in school.

    From my understanding, teaching sex education should ideally reduce teen pregnancy and transfer of STDs. The question is...does it?

    I think I know the what's causing the misunderstanding here. Sex Education is not about bang bang bang and uhh ah ah oh...youknowwhatI'msaying. It'd be about safe sex(which a lot of these kids are already having) and abstinence; they'd teach the kids about stds/HIV/AIDS. They have already been doing it, at least in the state of Texas, though not as a course but...kinda like workshop setting where you have a guest speaker showing you pics and consequences of having sex (I was in high school back then). As a youngster back then, those pics scared me and it still has effects on me til today.

    If they offer it as a course it'd be an elective course and not a mandatory one. I took a course called PCD (Parent/ Child Developement or somethng like that) in high school...it was a long time ago. This course WENT IN...as in the X and Y chromosones et al. It was in that class that I watched videos of women giving birth. Very educating and informative! I'm sure Sex Ed would be educating and informative too.

    It should. Once you teach them about the dangers of sex, it sticks to some and some just won't get it (kinda like Math...lol). When you teach it as a course (may I add it'd be a semester course) and these kids would have to study to pass the class, one way or the other the message would stick.

    There is no need for long essays on this question.
    Any intelligent person should know that SEX EDUCATION SHOULD BE TAUGHT IN SCHOOLS AS AN INTEGRAL PART OF REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH EDUCATION FROM PUBERTY and is already being taught in schools in many countries.
    Sex education curriculum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Implementing Sex Education
    I was commissioned by Johns Hopkins University's Population Communication Services in 1984 to produce public health illustrations in 9 booklets in Pidgin English, Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa for Family Planning Methods which were also used by the Planned Parenthood for sex education in Nigeria.
    Action Health also provided sex education for many secondary schools in Nigeria.

    But I didn't know we had a planned parenthood in Naija, that's pretty awesome. And are the books updated or still in use?

    it's probably not named planned parenthood.
    my sister told me that in PH, the hospital where she had my niece, the doctor talked to her about family planning and waiting two year or more before the next baby and they gave her some options regarding family planning.
