Sex education

A friend of mine recently told me about her son’s first sex ed class in health. Although middle school aged boys are not always forthcoming with what they do at school, this young man shared a great story. He reported that the “sex education” consisted mainly of the PE teacher lecturing them on all the reasons never to have sex. It was mostly about how diseases could be caught and how an unplanned pregnancy could make a teen’s life very hard. The teacher then asked if anyone knew someone who had gotten pregnant. There was a long, uncomfortable pause until someone in the class raised his hand and said that his mother had been pregnant. ☺
