    Should "Sex Ed" be taught by parents?

    I got into a debate on the topic with someone the other day. I am not sure if this was talked about here or not so if a thread was already made, let me know. Anyways...

    I have always thought it was strange that schools are responsible for teaching sexual education when every parent knows what it takes to make a baby and what the body goes through. Why shouldn't the parents be the ones to teach their kids?

    What are your thoughts on this?

    I think it's perfectly necessary for sex ed to be thaught (and correctly please) at school because you never know
    what kind of bullshit parents can make up.
    Also when i think school, i think of non-religious school because religion is education's N°1 ennemy especially for sex ed.
    And even in religious school i guess there is some kind of restraint but sadly parents tend to have no limits when it comes
    to branding their child as they want, and again especially religious parents.

    And when i talk about correct sex ed, i mean the basics of sexology (which is strict biology) and not any cheap way around.
    Never overestimate mankind.

    I think it should come from both, the school and parents. School sex ed teachers should fill the gap that parents cannot awkwardly teach their kids. I mean let's face it, it's not that comfortable teaching sex ed to your son or daughter, so it's best they have other sources to learn it aside from their own.

    More sharing my experience than opinion on it, but:

    Back in Florida, every year you would learn a bit more. Fifth-grade is where they really started teaching the stuff (I remember having “the talk” with my Dad the very night before that lesson). In Ohio, it seems to be less discussed (except among kids, who are a gazillion times more into that stuff up here).

    Anyway, I think a good mix of both is necessary, and with someone who is qualified to teach it only - not the long-term substitute I had for Life Science in sixth-grade!!

    I had already learned everything from friends and movies/music/internet by the time it came up formally in education. I don't think the ONE formal lesson most of us get on this topic needs to be scrutinized as much as all the surrounding information we gather by osmosis.

    In the UK we have a class (or had, not sure nowadays) called PSHE. It stands for Personal, Social and Health Education. I often thought it was pretty stupid as a kid, but to be honest I think it was necessary. I had already watched enough porn to know more than the basics of sex, but as far as topics like condoms, pregnancy and STIs went, the class was quite thorough and helpful.

    In the past thirty years, would you like to guess the number of times I've had a proper father-son talk with my dad? Spoiler alert: zero. My mother's excessively prudish, so I never talked about sex with either of my parents. I think sex ed classes are good for people like me, who never got the chance to learn about it outside of porn and word of mouth, because you won't learn much of the more important parts (such as risks) from those.

    Sex ed should be taught by parents ideally, but many aren't comfortable about it or downright lack the ability to do so.

    I didn't get taught either. I don't event remember my mom bringing it up once with me even though she was not shy about it. She had talks with my oldest brother about it multiple times as two adults but she couldn't bother explaining the basics to me. I don't really remember what they thought in school either because I half listened. I only remember learning about the menstrual cycle bit and that was it. Everything I learned was from watching sex or "love scenes" in movies, anime, or just googling questions. I would have much rather knew more than I did at the time so I could approach it with a better understanding but I could have ended up worse. Several girls I went to school with were pregnant drop outs or forced into abortions by their parents.

    I think that its better for schools to do that job. It would be uncomfortable for me to teach my boys sex education unless of course if they're teens already, but if they're like young boys or preteens between 8-12, it's kind of awkward and I do think that teachers are more prepared and suited for such discussion.

    I believe it's okay if you don't want to teach your kids sex ed when they're growing up but as a parent, you should at least be open and ready when the topic comes up or when they ask about certain things about it. If they get it from other people, they might learn it the wrong way.
