Sex Education

A proper sex education will foster good values and not leave a bad or even a ridiculous impression to the kids. Most counselors take precaution on how to present this sensitive topic to kids because a single misrepresentation may give them a wrong idea about sex.

If sex education is properly taught to kids, it will result in a better acceptance of who they are. Kids who are pre-teens are experiencing drastic changes in their body. Some can cope with it but most kids dont understand why puberty happens. With sex education, they will understand that their body is naturally changing. No need to get embarrassed since everyone will have to go through that stage.

Kids who are properly informed through sex education will also know the essential information about what is and what is not about sex. This will eliminate the kids curiosity about their own bodies. There are two types of curiosities and what sex education aims to avoid is unhealthy curiosity. Teens will want to explore their bodies. Without proper education, they will not be able to know the boundaries of sex.

One of the most important aspects of sex education is protection. Sex education is not encouraging sex but rather informing kids, especially teens, so that they will be prepared when the time comes for them to engage in sexual intercourse. In todays age, teens already know what sex is all about but its completely stereotyped by what they see online, in movies and in other forms of literature. Protection isnt just about curbing unwanted pregnancies. Sometimes, life can be endangered.

A properly conducted sex education will prepare teens for the future. It will also increase their self-esteem as they understand their bodies with the changes they are experiencing. Parents should also help by being open to discussions about sex. With all the stuff they can see online and other places, they will need all the proper information they can get for their own safety.
