When is the best age for a parent to teach their children about contraception?
If you're a very liberal parent advise them about the age of puberty. If you're a conservative, about the age of 40. If you're a realist, the night before they move out. David Russell
when they become ready to rock and go outside after leaving you, they should know these things in order to avoid the wrongs...
When they are ready... When you see a child examining and enjoying his/her body. That is the first sign its time to start revealing some truths about life and sexuality. The first lesson in contraception is when you teach your child that no other person is permitted to touch their body in any way especially their private parts.
i think teenagers will be able to understand easily. 15 years old and above. at this age, they are rebelious and tend to mix around with wrong friends. best time to advise them before anything goes wrong.
Actually, the best time is anytime you feel you should start showing responsibility in what they learn, and when they learn it. As you teach your child, from newborn to teenager, you need to incorporate the rights and wrongs in all things, including sex. Do not be shy about it. Be forthwith and forward. A child is most acceptable of new and free thoughts prior to the age of 12. So, if you cannot talk about it, play a tape while they sleep. Imprint upon their young minds, that sex is NOT recreational, and that bad things can happen to those who are loose with their bodies. Of course, don't forget to mention drugs, alcohol, gangs, peer pressure, etc. Just take time and teach your child. Get to know them, and let them know you. Conversation and communication are key factors here, and the most important next to unending love, and respect.

Is religion taught from birth a form of brainwashing?If you teach a child from birth a particular religion, is this not brainwashing? Would that child discover that religion on their own if it's something they weren't taught?

Why is it assumed that Morals are dictated by Religion? Doesn't that scare you?It is mentioned a lot that Morals are dictated by Religion, and the inference (or the direct statement occasionally) is that therefore Atheists are immoral. What makes people think this? I'm curious. Has anyone...
