we need better sex education in schools
Sex ed was a joke in high school. My teacher told us to read the chapters and answer the questions in the back. There was no instruction, question and answer sessions etc. Georgia public schools must give sex ed but parents are allowed take them out of the course. The schools must focus on abstinence but that's not realistic in today's society. Children are having sex at earlier ages. It is now important to talk with your children about sex as early as ten years old. For many children, the only sex education they get is from school. Many parents don't talk to their children about sex or they don't talk to them soon enough. Therefore, schools should put more emphasis on the issues that teens are facing today. Especially from a health and wellness stand point. They need to inform them of the dangers of unprotected sex, oral sex and sex at an early age.
