With the alarming teen pregnancies among ages 10-19 years is evident unprotected sex.. should these adolescents be provided with sex education and encourage them to practice safe sex? Adolescents are sexually active and with limited access to necessary services to help them practice safe sex.
Should adolescents be provided with sex education and encouraged to practice safe sex?
I wouldn’t say encourage them to have safe sex, but educate them on the meaning of sex and its consequences. If more youngsters were taught what sex is really about, less people would do it. Until they were psychologically and emotionally ready.
I think sex education is a very important topic and should be taught in schools, many parents fear to discuss sex topics with the children hence their children end up messing up due to lack of information.
parents should be the first teachers but as time goes the responsibility is left to the teacher. There is little meaningful time spent with this generation. actually when it happens it’s probably cz shit went south.
sex education will be necessary to help them understand their reasons and consequences behind their decisions regarding relationships and sex. actually I’m suspecting there’s no teen who is single😅.
True, Information and advocating for practical responsible sexual behaviour and abstinence will help them mature up in decision making around it.
One of the biggest problems with abstinence-only education is that it denies teenagers the chance to learn about acceptable options other than abstinence. Given that no form of sex education has been shown to effectively convince teenagers not to have sex, this is a significant problem.
Teach Boys to Be Good Men
Part of staying healthy is seeking appropriate health care. As boys age, many of them stop going for preventative health care.This limits the opportunities they have to be screened for, among other things, STIs.
Sex Ed Doesn’t Encourage Sex
Comprehensive sex education doesn’t encourage kids to have sex. Just like abstinence-only programs, good comprehensive programs teach students that abstinence is the only surefire way to prevent pregnancy and STIs.The difference is that these programs also give students realistic and factual information about the safety of various sexual practices and how to improve the odds.
Know Means No
The more kids know, the more likely they are to say “No.” Teenagers aren’t stupid. When a teacher tells them that only abstinence can protect them from the dangers of STIs and pregnancy, they know they’re being lied to. At the very least, they know they’re being misled
Adolescents should be given sex education.This will go a long way in ensuring that the teenagers learn abstain or rather have protected sex. This will help curb teenage pregnancies and the problem of STIs amongst our teenagers.
