Question : Why sex education is important for Teenagers in our culture? Teentalker

Dear Teentalker,

Thanks for writing to us. Its really a good question!

A young boy or girl who is just entering teens, needs to learn all aspects about physiological and emotional changes that he or she will be going through while growing up. This information and awareness is absolutely essential for that young individual, in order to ensure that he or she can make informed choices as one goes through the teen years.

Due to lack of information and awareness that children go through traumatic experiences that range from sexual abuse to emotional and physical abuse, without knowing the implications of these and this leads to the victim being emotionally and sometimes, physically, scarred for life. Sex education is not just about sex and birth control. 

Sex education does not teach children how to have sex at an early age. It teaches them about the physiological, social, and biological aspects of leading a healthy sexual life in the future. This encompasses not only the physical act of sex, but also – gender identity, physical changes, consent, awareness about sexual abuse, birth control measures, and prevention of AIDS and STDs.

Hope this helps, should you have any other query, do connect online for chat between 11am-6pm or drop us an offline message.
