on Sex Ed
A lady was on the show from Scappose. She was "apalled" at some of the material and specifically mentioned explicit instructions on how to use and dispose of a condom.
She felt that if she wanted her child to know about condoms or how to use them, she would tell them herself.
Unfortunately, not all parents are able to talk about condom use with their children. I know a young girl who thought she knew about using a condom for "safe sex." Unfortunately, one night she and her boyfriend only had one condom. They decided it would be alright if they turned the one condom they had inside out and reused it.
She contracted a very serious STD and may never be able to have children as a result.
So, it isn't about your children and what you can and will tell them. It is about all children. If she had had a sex ed course with explicit instructions on condom use, she might be able to have children today.
