“Whaaa!!,” cries a newborn. Another baby is born to a teen mother. Maybe this wouldn’t of happened if she took sex education? I think so. I strongly believe students should have the opertunity to take sex education for many reasons. Sex education can prevent pregnancies and STDs by teaching safe sex. Also it can benefit those shy parents out there who are too uncomfortable to have “The Talk” with their teens.

In sex education, students learn a lot of information that they probably have been wondering about for a while. Many teens feel awkward talking about sex to their parents. They may feel like their parents will judge them, think they are sexually active, or just that their parents will feel weird and reject the questions. I, personally, feel much more comfortable asking my child development teacher any questions rather than my mom.

Also, sex education ...view middle of the document...

Even though I don’t bring up the topic of sex with my mom, she always talks about it randomly to me just to drill it into my head to do the right thing. Unlike my mom, a lot of parents don’t have “The Talk” with their teens. Believe it or not, some parents feel too uncomfortable talking about the birds and the bees to their teens. “Many parents aren't comfortable discussing sex, and prefer to hope that their children are figuring it out from other sources such as television, movies, their friends and school” (Paul). This is a huge mistake. Based on the way the way the media portrays sex most of the time usually does nothing for teens but help them to make mistakes. On the other hand, it may not be the parents who are shy, it could also be the teens. Some teens refuse to talk to their parents about sex. They feel that their parents may judge them or suspect they are having sex.

I feel that if sex education if offered in schools, there should be restrictions. Sex education shouldn’t me a mandatory course. Parents should be able to confirm if they feel that their child should or shouldn’t take the class. Also, student’s ages should defiantly be considered. There should be different courses for each age group. I don’t think parents of a fourteen year old want their child to know everything about sex right away. Students shouldn’t be bombarded with everything there is to know about sex right away. I feel as a student gets older, more in depth sex education classes should be offered. I also feel schools should offer special pregnancy courses for expecting girls. What they should be expecting and how to prepare for bringing a child into the world.

To those who say sex education shouldn’t be offered in schools, I say it does nothing but benefit teens. All of us teens have questions and concerns about sex and I feel like we have the right to learn about it. Sex education will benefit parents as well as teens. It will help parents by telling their about sex. All the stuff some parents are uncomfortable telling. Also, it benefits teens by preventing pregnancies and STDs. So don’t be that teen who was uneducated about sex and as a result had to take on more responsibilities than you could handle.
