Importance of morality in sex education =

Be a loyal person and responsible person


Education is not just about giving people the facts, it is also about teaching skills to enable
young people to use that information effectively and to moderate behaviours according to the
information and knowledge at hand. By building the knowledge base gradually and honestly, as
the child is growing and showing natural curiosity, there may never be a need for that dreaded
talk about the birds and the bees. However, as the child approaches puberty it is worth checking
out their knowledge, for gaps and misunderstandings. Do not underestimate how much young
people will talk about sex amongst themselves and consider who you would rather they got
their information from!?

The important of morality in sex education is can make us become a loyal and
responsible person.
Responsible is something that you must do as part of your job or duty and
Loyal is always supporting your friends, principles, country and so on.


Advantages and Benefits of Sex Education to Children and Students

Parents, family members, schools, religious houses and the faithful members of the society are
expected to have the responsibility of teaching the children about sexuality, although in a safe
and secure way. Sex education should start from the family. Mothers have the greatest
responsibility of teaching her children, both male and female, about sex education because she
has the role of looking out for and taking care of and teaching the children.( read about family
members and their responsibilities here)

Children need to know about their body changes, the causes for these changes and how well to
live a healthy life despite the changes. This education protects a child from all sorts of sex abuse,
molestation from friends, older ones, family members, teachers and other members of the society.
It also creates an awareness of diseases and infections, teaches them how to manage their sexual
behaviors, emotions, how to put them under control and how to be safe in an unsafe environment.
A young child should know his or her body parts: these body parts should be given names that
will depict where he or she should never allow anyone to touch or play with.
How did you learn about relationships and sex? Was it good, bad or indifferent? Was it through
friends, films and TV, older brothers or sisters, personal experience, or did you get sex education
at school? Perhaps it was from your mum or dad? And if it was from your mother or father does
the recollection of 'that conversation' elicit some uncomfortable memories of a stuttered and
mortified parent desperately trying to explain the facts of life to you?

How you learned about sex is the first question posed by tutors running FPA's Speakeasy course.
It helps parents and carers gain the confidence and skills to talk to their children about sex,
relationships and sexuality and growing up.

Many parents because their own parents struggled to talk to them can't approach the subject
with their children. "How do I start to talk about this with my child?" is a frequent response from
parents, along with: "I don't feel confident answering that kind of question", or, disconcertingly,
"what if they know more than I do?""

Then there's the fear that talking about sex will encourage a child to experiment with sex too early
or before they're mature enough to deal with it. (It won't: for the record the evidence shows that
the opposite is true.) No wonder so many parents would rather leave it to schools.

Yet many parents are ambiguous about the role of schools, with views ranging from: "Let them
deal with it" through to a fear that "they're taking our children's innocence".

And when schools do make an effort to engage parents such as arranging video evenings where
the teaching resources are explained many are too embarrassed or don't think it's important
enough to turn up. Conversely schools that take sex and relationships education very seriously
can be heavily criticized by professional lobby groups who believe that sex education should only
be done by parents.

However, leaving it to parents assumes that all parents will talk in an open and honest fashion so
that their children will become young adults who can make choices for themselves. For many
reasons this often doesn't happen or happens too late.

Similarly, just leaving it to the schools takes away the challenge and responsibility of parents to
engage with this aspect of their children's lives, and their physical and emotional development.

After all, the school won't field the questions about where babies come from while you're trawling
the vegetable aisle in Tescos. Children can catch you off-guard with questions. And maybe it's
better that way. Tackling a sexuality conversation face to face as a serious sit down lecture can be
fraught for all concerned. But talking about sex and relationships when you're driving, washing-
up walking or shopping can relieve some of the eye-to-eye intensity of the situation.

The main thing is to make sure that the 'facts of life' talk isn't a one-off lecture but an ongoing
conversation that your children feel they can come back to. Also, getting to know the topics a
school will be covering over the coming term means you can anticipate questions and tackle them
'casually' through everyday conversations and support it in the home.
The truth is, like most parenting issues: it's a bit of a team effort. No matter how good your
school's approach, there's no substitute for parental advice on the intimate subjects of
relationships, puberty changes, growing up and sex.

Programmes such as FPA Speakeasy can build your confidence. As a result you might find it
improves the quality of your relationship with your children and allows them to go on to talk
about other difficult issues like drugs and alcohol. But that's another discussion ...

Imparting sex education to youngsters

Introducing sex education in school curriculum. This might be implemented in private and
government schools with a carefully knitted syllabus covering all the aspects of sex education for

Various risky behaviours among youth, such as forced sex, indulging in pornography, physical
abuse can lead to early pregnancies. This should form the vital part of the curriculum helping the
youth to understand the unethical and inhuman aspect of such behaviours.

It should also provide the knowledge of contraceptives and the difference between various
contraception methods, such as morning pills, contraceptives, condoms and finally abortion. This
should also include the time duration for taking these precautions. Many girls from varied age
groups do not have access to this information and give birth to stillborn babies or even encounter

Colleges and schools can hold debates and discussions on the importance of sex education and
sensitize teachers and students.

A major section of the Indian society lives below the poverty line, therefore, in order to attract
the attention of this social stratum, alternate methods of education must be approached. Film
screenings and visual media showing the intensity of STDs and life-taking diseases are a few
suggestions. Apart from that, free health camps should also be set up that supply condoms and
regular health checkups for the underprivileged.

Make the youth understand, through intensive training programmes, the importance of self-
worth. Random sexual acts can cause irreparable damage to the human body. Every individual
should learn to understand the worth of life.

Another important point within sex education is to teach the youth about personal hygiene.

The youth must not allow the generation gap they have with their parents come in the way.
Consultation with parents, guardians or trusted authorities can be the best way to put ones
anxieties to rest.

Prejudice and biases prevent one from understanding the importance of sex education. Every
youth must undertake this venture as a responsibility and not just as curriculum.

When was the last time you used calculus? Unless you're an engineer or scientist I would be willing
to bet it was that awful class in 12th grade. Imagine if your parents could have opted you out of
that. What if they could have just signed a sheet of paper and excused you from that unit of math?
Well, as terrible as calculus is, it's still important. Maybe you dont use it every day, but it's useful
at times and sex education is the same way.

Even if you dont plan to be sexually active, that doesnt mean that you shouldnt learn about sex,
anatomy, contraceptives, and the other topics that make up sex education. Sex education is just
as important as calculus, so why can we opt out of one but not the other? Knowledge is for
everyone, and sex education shouldnt be limited to certain people because of their parents' views.
Access to comprehensive, medically accurate sex education is a human right.

Sex is a natural part of life, and it happens with or without sex education. 71% of American 19-
year-olds have had intercourse. 99% of Americans will have sex in their lifetime. Only 20 states
require sex and HIV education be taught in schools. Sex is a fundamental part of being human;
but less than half of our states require sex and HIV education, and most of what is taught is sub-
par. Just because we refuse to talk about sex doesnt mean it's just going to go away.

There are 35 states that have laws that allow parents to opt their children out of sex ed. Even
worse, 3 states make parents opt their children into sex ed. You can't opt your children in or out
of math. But when it comes to sex education, one of the most important things you can learn in
school, a parent can take their kid out for no reason at all. I am all for religious freedom, but just
because you or your religion values abstinence doesnt mean your kids will too. It's important
teens get all the information they can, and then make a decision about their own values. Don't let
religion or family values be a reason to let students be taken out of sexual health education. Don't
let your morals obstruct your kid's learning.

Let's recall 12th grade math class just once more. Everything you learned was factual information.
But what if that wasnt the case? What if your teacher wasnt obligated to teach accurate
information? Sadly, this is the case for sex education in 37 states. Only 13 states require sex
education information be medically accurate. We, one of the world's leading powers, only require
26% of states to teach children medically accurate information.

Sex education is important. It's been proven time and time again. We know students who
receive formal sex education in schools are shown to first have sexual intercourse later than
students who have not had sex education. Sex education does not encourage teenagers to have
sex, it does quite the opposite.

Every teenager should have sex education incorporated into their schooling. It shouldnt be opt-
in or opt-out but mandatory. Why should parents be able to opt their children in or out of a subject
that they'll need later in life, one way or another? Sex education should be mandatory,
comprehensive, medically accurate, and taught throughout student's school years, just like math.
It's been shown to help students, not hurt. Not only is having access to sex education that is not
only comprehensive but medically accurate a human right; it's our fundamental duty as a society
to educate the next generation. Currently, we are failing.


Sex education = A loyal and responsible person.

Think carefully before you act

Prevention of HIV and STDs

Sex-ed programs often include significant coverage of various types of sexually transmitted
diseases. For many students, this is the first time they go through a thorough review of causes
and results of STDs. Regardless of the overall teaching philosophy, STD awareness can either help
motivate student abstinence or at least cause them to take precautions when engaging in sexual
behavior to prevent diseases.

Comprehensive sex education is an essential part of HIV prevention. It is proved to be more

effective in preventing sexually transmitted infections than education that focuses solely on
teaching abstinence until marriage.

Better Protection

High school students that continued or intended to continue sexual activity at least seem to get
the message that protection is important. The Advocates for Youth site also indicated that 60
percent of sex-education program participants stopped or reduced the amount of unprotected
sex they were having. Many sex-ed programs include discussion of various types of contraception
used to prevent STDs and lower pregnancy risks.

Reduced Pregnancies

Teen pregnancy is a major concern in high schools and homes across America. A correlation often
exists between the amount of education and the rate of teen pregnancy. A study from the
National Survey of Family Growth showed that students are half as likely to get pregnant between
the ages of 15 and 19 after going through a sex-education class. The Advocates for Youth site
pointed out that programs that teach prevention techniques tend to have the most success in this

2. Prevention of unintended pregnancies

Where teenage pregnancy can get in the way of education and other life opportunities, sex
education can mitigate unintended pregnancy. Sex education programs have been proven
effective at delaying first intercourse and increasing use of contraception among sexually active

3. Empowerment against sexual violence

Sex education helps teenagers understand themselves biologically and prepare to face the world
so that they do not fall victim to sexual predators. It also empowers girls and boys to speak up if
their sexual boundaries are violated. It has long been recognized that countries that have a more
open and positive attitude toward sexuality have better sexual health outcomes. Sexuality
education exposes young boys and girls to material that not only reduces their risk of unplanned
pregnancy and disease, but also enlightens and empowers them. To curb high adolescent
pregnancy rates, governments can enforce policies that protect and promote womens and girls
rights, including the right to comprehensive sexual education in schools.

3. It Talks about Contraceptives, but Doesnt Force Kids to Use Them

Another misconception running rampant is that knowledge about condoms makes people
more promiscuous. We can make the following conclusions based on this logic: knowledge of
sharp objects makes people more murderous, knowledge of stars makes people astronauts, and
knowledge of wind patterns makes us windmills. Knowledge does not cause inevitable action.

In fact, knowledge about contraceptives is beneficial to people regardless of their stance

on this issue. They can learn the pros and cons behind contraceptives, learn about success rates
and side effects, and make an informed decision on whether or not to use them. Those who cry
foul about contraceptive use increasing promiscuity, therefore increasing unplanned pregnancies
due to contraceptive failure and the abortions that inevitably follow need to realize one thing:
majority of contraceptive failures arise from improper use. In short, contraceptives fail because
people dont know how to use them. They dont know how to use them because they were never

And be a loyal person

5. It Teaches People to be Responsible about Sex

All this information, both the good and the bad, helps build maturity and a sense of responsibility.
After all, having sex involves more than just the person himself; other peoples health and overall
quality of life hang on the act. It may not force kids to use contraceptives or have sex, but it does
force them to do one thing: think first. Thats what education gives us the ability to consider
the effects, costs, and benefits of our actions. Sex education will not lead to a collapse of morality,
but an enlightenment of our humanity and our responsibility for the future.

4. Key learning objectives

Learn to care about others and to be sensitive to their needs and views
Learn the importance of conscience, religion values and moral considerations

Learn to be honest, loyal, trustworthy and faithful in relationships
Learn to take responsibility for ones actions
Learn to explore, consider, understand and reflect as part of decision making
Learn to manage emotions and relationships confidently and sensitively

5. Moral Framework

Pupils will be taught SRE within a framework which models and encourages the following
values: Being honest with themselves and others
Developing a critical awareness of themselves and others
Learning to show tolerance, understanding, respect and care for others
Developing an awareness and belief in ones own identity
Having a positive attitude towards the value of stable relationships for bringing up children

Sexuality education should provide:

Learning about physical processes related to sexuality
Understanding individual sexual development, finding a personal identity, understanding gender
roles, finding a partner, and building relationships
Shaping a full sexual life and its understanding positive effects
Learning about pregnancy and prenatal life
Discovering different lifestyles and creating life plans
Understanding sexually transmitted diseases, risks, routes of transmission, and protective options
Sexuality education should motivate students to:
Use options for protection from unintended pregnancy and STDs
Acknowledge the responsibility of both partners for contraception
Consciously shape sexuality, relationships, and partnerships
Accept and tolerate different lifestyles and life plans Sexuality education should build competence
Developing communication and action skills in the areas of partnership, family planning, sexuality,
contraception, and protection against STDs
Experiencing sensations and consciously shaping intimacy and tenderness
Developing the ability to deal with conflicts, particularly for preventing sexual exploitation, sexual
abuse, and violence.
