There is a myth that sex education will lead to sexual interactions at an early age. In reality, evidence has been found via research that proves exactly the opposite. Children who know the consequences of early intercourse will take a more weighted decision than the ones who have inadequate or inappropriate knowledge.
Sex education will help equip your child with information pertinent to HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. Teenage/early pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases may change your child’s life forever. Once the child knows the emotional and physical fallouts of a sexual relationship, it reduces sexual activity. All important information and values that your child will have about sex will depend on how you impart information to your child. Casual and truthful chats with your child will not only help him or her sort out his sexual confusions but also help in developing confidence and right self-esteem.
