The results of the survey conducted last year had some eye-opening statistics which include the following findings: decided to highlight the importance of parents talking to children about sex before it is too late.
Sexual Education Helps Us To Be More Wise And Responsible, Says 15-Year-Old Last year, a sex educator shared with that most children get experimental at the age of 15 years old.
“But above all, my friends and I concurred that sexual education has helped us to be more wise and responsible, especially for those who are sexually active.
Nevertheless the mother of three acknowledged that times are changing and agreed that it’s equally important for parents to be educated on sexual and reproductive health to help them be more prepared and better informed when the time comes.
“When my eldest boy, who was nine years old at that time, asked me where babies come from, I was taken by surprise and made a reference to bees and flowers.
“My parents and I never had the talk because I got my information from my older siblings.
But even if my siblings weren’t around, I don’t doubt that my parents would be upfront about it with me.
“I think I left him more confused than ever because for a while I caught him looking at flowers and waiting for bees to land on it,” Naina said with a chuckle.
As she realised that her misinformation has led her son to be more confused and curious, Naina consulted with her husband on the best method to convey appropriate amount of information to their son.But 15-year-old Natasha shared that teenagers would only get experimental if they are enticed or persuaded, especially for the girls.“The line between what is considered as sexual intercourse and what is not has been blurred over the years and I think it’s partly due to the misinformation that we’ve all been fed,” Natasha opined.“One night before we tucked in our son, we revisited the topic and properly explained it to him – emphasising that my husband and I love each other very much before we ‘made him’ as love is essential to start a family.“Since then my husband spent (more) time with our son because it’s important for fathers and sons to establish a close bond; allowing him to feel comfortable enough to come to confide in my husband regarding his manhood,” she opined.I was scared, awkward and conscious of body, but he assured me that everything will be great and he even wore a condom,” Rachel recounted.
