Sex Education for Babies
All parents face difficult questions from their children asking, “where do I come from ?” “how did I get here ?” etc. It happens at different ages and depending on the age should depend on the answer they are given. I am sure most parents will agree the truth is the very best answer but it is the degree of detail that is so important. No five year old wants the full story in Technicolor regarding their parents sex life or anyone else’s they are satisfied with a brief response used through the ages i.e. mummy and daddy love each other and that is why they wanted you and you grew in mummy’s tummy. It’s unfair to burden very young children with explicit details and then wonder why they say word and do things not acceptable in schools or in society. We cannot expect small children to cope with the amount of information government want primary school to implant into childish minds. One wonders how the ‘experts’ reconcile themselves with the statistic the more we have offered detailed sex education the quicker teenage pregnancies and diseases have spread. Recently, our children, when surveyed were deemed the unhappiest in Europe and now we want to burden innocent minds, minds that want to play with cars and dolls with detailed sex education at seven. We know there will be and always has been some very young children who are living in homes where they see many things no small child should, well lets find these children and lets put things right not try to help the minority by burdening the majority we are in grave danger of not helping any and distressing many. Information not really understood can frighten a small child and we would all do well to remember just how small a seven year old is and not be blind by aggressive marking that makes us believe children are small adults, it is cruel and will contribute to the erosion of childhood we are allowing to happen.
