You’ve probably experienced being asked by either your kids or your nephews or nieces of where babies come from. And you utter a few awkward words about the birds and the bees as you look back to try to remember what sexual education lessons you’ve learned while you were young to help you answer the question. Then you resign to the situation by simply saying that it’s complicated to explain at that moment and that they would find out soon as they grow up.
Primary school students have an inquisitive mind in nature. They ask about everything, why the sky is blue, why milk tastes funny when you forget to place it back in the fridge, and so many other things. This has brought about much debate on whether or not sexual education should be taught as early as primary school.
There are learning institutions that offer courses on sexual education as early as primary school level. While other learning institutions wait until children reach the age of puberty or adolescence to orient teach them about the topic. Since primary students still spend a big amount of their time with parents rather than in school, sexual education for primary students should be designed for both children and parents. This way parents would also know how to answer once faced with questions pertaining to the topic.
