    Is there an alternate reason that Britian wants to start sex education as early as the age of five?

    I know they want to prepare them for future intamacies when they grow up but isn't five pushing it? Sex will eventually become the center of their life either in a good way or a bad way. I for one, am against it.

    It may sound funny, however I am for, but at the same time against it. They should go for it, but only if they are certain they can do the job properly. This is not something anyone should be experimenting with.

    Why is it we suddenly have a know it all State system that is hell bent on destroying the innocence that once we called childhood ?

    Life is tough enough for long enough why do they insist it starts at five years of age with all the knowledge that should take a lifetime to learn and understand ?

    There is always an age for doing everything...sadly in the case of Sex , the age is fast decreasing...Forget India itself the sale of "morning pills" are steadily rising amongst the early teens.....
    But, yes 5 years is way too early....we might just be snatching the ever so beautiful childhood from these kids...

    @cell- Isn't it the responsibility of the parents to offer moral advice when it comes to sex? Not everyone is a fit parent, especially when it comes to this topic. Still, that alone cannot justify it.

    @hyrid- I never heard of Morning Pills. I do think sex important to understand because it has its upsides and downsides.

    @Merlin- This is yet another way of controlling the human mind from a young age. Whether it's pressing the issue of higher education halfway through grade school or pushing to get teens to come out with their sexuality at a young age, the 'system' proves its deception and flaws once again.

    Perhaps I'm not looking at this from their angle but the idea itself is, in one word, horrendous.

    I agree that five years old is way too young to introduce the idea of sex education to children. At five they're still learning to read! I'm also aware that kids are having sex younger and younger--when I was 12 I knew other people my age who were already having sex with several partners.

    I was first introduced to sex ed around the age of 10 and in the fifth grade at elementary school. It's a little sad that it's become necessary to start teaching it to kids younger than that.

    Children start being interested in themselves at a very early age, sometimes as early as two and three. And we all have a very high rate of teen pregnancy with some being as young as eleven or twelve. If the parents won't educate them someone has to. I don't blame them though. Kids need more information than they are getting right now. Someone has to let them know the risks and someone has to tell them that pregnancy is something you NEED to wait on.  It's not like you can hide sex from them: it's every where. So it's better to give them the right information first rather than them learning it the hard way. If you don't want the schools teaching them, then sit down with them and give them the information yourself.
