on Sex Ed
As a parent of two 6th grade boys in the Scappoose school system, I want to remind parents that you always have the option of keeping your child out of school for those days. When the time came for the "health and sex ed" program in 5th grade, the school was very forthcoming with the times and dates of the program, and we as parents had to give our permission for our children to attend. After reviewing all the materials, my husband and I decided to allow our boys to attend. After it was over, we sat down with the boys and talked about what they had learned that day. We wanted to make sure that, when they heard their peers discussing sex, they would be prepared. As devout Christians, we absolutely support abstinence education. But we also know that our boys will be exposed to all kinds of ideas, and we want them to be able to make good decisions.
