Do you think teaching Sex Ed to 5 years old is too young?
This is what is being debated:
The proposal lays out what students should be taught in each grade level starting with kindergarten.
- At that age, kids will learn about reproductive body parts including their scientific names.
- In first grade, they will be taught that a person can love someone of the same gender.
- In fifth grade, kids will learn about different kinds of intercourse and a more in-depth look at sexual orientation.
- In high school, they will be taught that erotic images in "art" help people understand sexuality.
YES! Way Way Way to young! My job as the parent to decide when to introduce something of this nature to my children. We know that a child's brain is not fully developed until after the age of 18. The reasoning part of the brain. So when you educate or indoctrinate children especially something of this nature, do you really think that once introduced that the reasoning part of their brain is actually going to help them?
I know my parents explained things when the time was right. However, much of what they are teaching children now I didn't learn until I was in my 20's. And I can't tell you how thankful I am. Sometimes, things you don't know as a child is for the sake of protection. It is our job as parents to protect, yes, even shield our children.
