Teaching about sexuality encourages students to develop a coherent set of personal values based upon respecting themselves and others. Students who understand and value themselves and others are better equipped to develop meaningful and respectful relationships. They are able to take a positive approach to managing their lives and develop the necessary skills to prepare them for current and future life challenges.
Sexuality education lays the foundations for students by learning the correct names for parts of the body, understanding principles of human reproduction, exploring family and interpersonal relationships, learning about safety, and developing confidence. These can then be built upon gradually, in line with the age and development of a student.
Sexuality education encompasses a range of relationships, not only sexual relationships. Children are aware of and recognise these relationships long before they act on their sexuality and therefore need the skills to understand their bodies, relationships and feelings from an early age.
Here is where MisterAwareness will give you the resources to educate your sons, daughters, students, and all people of all identities. We need to step up and smartly educate them. No more leaving them to fend for themselves. As years goes on, kids of even younger ages are exploring and even taking part in sexual activities. Of course it is normal for teenagers to explore their sexuality but we must give them the support to do so safely. We need to save these kids from young pregnancies. The teen pregnancy rate indicator estimates the number of pregnancies (resulting in live births, stillbirths, and therapeutic abortions) per 1,000 females are ages 15 -19 years of age. Now This is growing and ages are becoming younger. We have the ability to prevent this by all means. We need to step up and give the info in our schools. Yes it’s embarrassing and awkward but we need to help the students in our schools. Lets stand together and give all the possible information they could possibly need.
“Well, I think that abstinence has its place as part of a comprehensive health and sex education curriculum. It would be wrong to exclude abstinence from a health curriculum, because there are some potentially very serious ramifications for early sexual activity.”
