People are not prepared to be parents. And the last generation-the baby boomers-us-we raised kids who heard that we had Camelot and saw it die when we were kids. So they never got married,they aren't having babies,and they are putting money away. The other ones,the ones that got pregnant in the '60's? Well they're grandparents now.They never got the message. The uneducated passed their message on to their whelp and wondered where they went wrong. The first time we left our son home alone and went off on Spring Break with our 2 daughters because he said he had to study for school, he was put on his word of honor.He was 16. He had permission to spend a year in Germany alone. He held down 3 jobs,a 2nd deg.Blk.Blt.,State Champion multiple times till people let him be smart, paid for his car,and was an A+ student. I pointed to the nightstand,and said ",be good,and if you aren't ,you know where everything is." I was still nursing his sister so when we walked into he's sex-ed class on open-house night,his teacher said," I see one student who gets and A." I was 6 months pregnant.
He's 37.He has a live-in girlfriend of 2 years.He has a company he started 3 years ago. My 32 year old-LIS-living in sin-11yrs,has an MS a good job,a house,3 cats,a fox.No baby. The baby is 22. #1&2 loved their baby sister.Truly loved her.Our family broke when she left.She is their birth control.You love too much,you have the perfect daughter.No warning,one day,she leaves. No baby? No family. Real B. C

Yes, or at least help in that direction. Just not too early as kids are inundated with enough info as it is.

Yes, but just as one wouldn't start teaching quantum mechanics to a relatively young and immature mind, one shouldn't start teaching sex education to an young and immature mind either. . .

I think it's far more dangerous to omit the facts and think that just because you teach abstinence kids won't become sexually active.
