IS SEX EDUCATION NECESSARY

Awareness of sex is the most significant factor necessary to lead a secure life. Usual educational practices are very simple to learn, but we cannot consider sex education on the same line. It comprises of physiological, psychological and social issues, especially when we think of including it as a part of academic syllabus. As these complications occur, a question may arise in the mind of people about the need for sex education providing to the children. While children reach teenage level, lack of sex education may lead the way to their unusual behavior.

If not corrected at the exact time, it may generate problems of immature misbehavior's in these children’s life. Our children are growing up quicker than they ever have in the past; consequently their minds are growing more and more curious. Teenage pregnancy has been a key topic for discussion for far too long with little to no action being taken to prevent such pregnancies. Many people consider that something different needs to be done in regards to the way our children perceive sexual education.

“Sex education is a process that begins at birth and continues until the day you die”

Sexual education hold begin at home. Parents and guardians ought to be the primary instructors of sex education for their children. Daily, parents should take advantage of every opportunity to teach this subject to their children. From the beginning of a child’s life, they learn how to respond to affection, show love, and how to react in different types of relationships. Children even learn about their sexuality when their parents speak to them, change their clothes, play with them or teach them their body parts.

As they progress from children to teenagers or adolescents they continue to learn about their sexuality consistently. However, some parents and guardians are very uncomfortable about talking about or providing information about sex or sexual education. They are either too embarrassed about talking about the extreme topic of sex, afraid of providing to much information to push their children to act on what they have told them or shy of not knowing the answers to the questions that their children might ask.

Honest, open communication between parents and children through childhood, preteen, adolescent and young adulthood can help young people to mature into sexually healthy adults. Research has shown that parents and children have a range of discomfort levels when it comes to discussing sexuality.

The primary goal of sex education in the schools should be to help young people to build a foundation as they mature into sexually healthy adults. These programs should assist young people in understanding a positive view of sexuality, provide them with information and skills about taking care of their sexual health and help them make decisions about solving problems now and in the future. According to my interpretation, sex education should provide an opportunity for young people to develop and understand their values, attitudes, and beliefs about sexuality.

Sex Education: Does it Really Work? "Forty percent of today's fourteen year old girls will become pregnant by the time they are nineteen"

Sex Education should be taught in middle schools to make our children aware and help them with decisions in the future.

Introducing sex education in the schools of India is an important issue.
A 2007 ministry of women and child development study shows that over 50 percent of children are sexually abused. Sex is still considered a taboo in India. Parents feel embarrassed to talk openly with their children in this regard. Due to the ignorance of sex education they fall victim to AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. Many NGOs are trying to create awareness on AIDS. Sex education can help people to take decisions regarding health and sexuality. It is high time for sex-education to the introduced in schools for the benefit of the youth of the country.
