  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

    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
