Subject: Re: SEX! Should Sex Ed be in Elementary Schools?

Forum: SEX! Should Sex Ed be in Elementary Schools?
Thanks for the responses so far, very interesting topic, loving seeing different opinions and point of views all in one spot.

Wames I actually agree with you, my oldest son is about to be 7 and in the 1st grade which means 4 years from now they think it's ok for my child to learn about sex in school.

I am well aware of all the benefits of sex Ed and do agree there are many benefits of being taught Sex Ed in school, but I think there is a line where it is more for the parents to do and then later in life the school system brushes up on this and maybe relates it to health concerns and focused on STDs and safe sex maybe in middle school.

I would say high school of this was a perfect time and age on life, but unfortunately it would still have to be middle school due to the stats of when teens or kids start to have sex now days.

It is sad, but us parents have to do better, not the school system! It is your job as a parent to talk to your kids when you see they are ready or need that "talk".

Do I think the school system should teach 11 or 12 year olds if they use a condom the risks go down, and how to put a condom on, no. I think this should be something taught at home, between the child and his or her parents and maybe other family members or what not.

As a mother I would rather reach out to my pastor at church or my mother and father to help with this topic, not in school where I want them actually learning what they need to further their careers or education on life.

I feel this makes teens or kids more comfortable with talking about and eventually, having sex. At 12 how much do you really understand about the consequences of your actions.

We're not taught to balance a bank account or savings account in school or how to operate a gun to be safe, so why bring up sex so early in school??

Looking forward to hearing more responses and hope you all have a great weekend!!

Forum: Day or Night Classes?
I am a night owl 100% but I would not take campus classes at night. If I had to take a campus course I would prefer day, never night, though early morning classes are almost impossible for me.

I take hybrid classes which are mostly online, but campus based too. Meaning we do have days we come to class, but almost everything is done online.

For me online classes have made a world of difference, but the hybrid classes are the best of both worlds.

Glad to learn so much about each of you here, love getting to know yalla through your posts and each forum!

Wish you all the best in all that you do daily, have a great day on purpose!

Forum: SEX! Should Sex Ed be in Elementary Schools?
So my oldest god son is in the 5th grade and is now being taught Sex Ed!!

I live in Washington DC and our kids here are growing up way too fast! I've seen girls 12 and 13 pregnant!

So my question to you all is, do you think Sex Ed helps keep kids from having sex or in a way, helps encourage them to have sex by feeling they know what it is now??

Do you think educating them this early is a preventive measure or actually helps prevent them from having sex too soon???

What grade do you think Sex Ed should begin? When did it begin when you were in school??

As a parent, or when you're a parent, how would you feel if your 12 year old came home with Sex Ed paperwork, would you let them participate????

Enjoying being back at CNet so much and so glad to meet all of you! Anticipating all of your responses to this and good luck in this week's election!!

Good morning and nice to meet you!

Cool topic!

For me I check my phone before I even get out the bed. I check for missed calls or texts, and more so to check the time. I then plug it up to get battery before I leave the house.

I too, then turn the TV on, but not for the news as I use my phone for the weather too. I turn it on out of habit and more for my kids to have their morning cartoons.

Then I immediately Listerine and brush my hair and use the bathroom. From there it's something to drink and getting my kids drinks and maybe breakfast or a snack.

It takes me a little extra time in the morning because the first 45 minutes or so, i feel like I move in what I call "slow mode"... Until I get woken up a bit, I am pretty much piddling around waking up and doing small things.

Now that I am back on Cnet I know this will also be one of the things I do first thing in the morning, checking the status of the current top candidates. When I was here years ago, I lived and breathed Cnet. I woke up and went to sleep to Cnet and checking my notes and the status of top candidates.
