on Sex Ed
For me, the father of a primary school daughter, is the ability of the educational system to provide my daughter with the knowledge based tools to be a successful member of our society. Parents are the primary teacher for their children. It is our responsiblity to educate our children - not the school. We stand next to our children to guide and understand things in life they encounter and which my be confusing, difficult to understand, or emotonally stressful. This includes sex education. If the school emphasizes something different from our values or expectations its our job as parents to help our children understand why. Until we as parent become knowledgable and comfortable about sex education many of us will react with anger and fear about its open discussion in any format, but especially school.
