Today, I write on a topic rarely mentioned or talked about. As a child, I grew up loving movies. And I still don't know how my elder sister knew a sex scene was about to happen cos she will make an excuse and leave the room, while innocent and naive me will stay put, just for dad to shout "don't you have a book to read?" I ran out of the sitting room feeling embarrassed.
Most parents then didn't believe in sex education. What I know and learnt from sex was given to me later in life by my mum. Lol.
The question now is, How old should a child be educated about sex? Is teaching a child about sex likely to lead to experimentation? Was it fear that made our parents not tell us about sex early or were they trying to protect us?
As a result of the ignorance most of us have, it has led to mistakes made and inquisitive experimentations which maybe fatal.
I witnessed a mother recently teaching her eight year old daughter how to use a sanitary pad and about sex and boys. I was moved. There and then, I promised myself that my kids won't be naive, or learn it by experimenting. I would teach, educate, enlighten them on the necessary things cos it will make them wise. Mothers and future mothers should do that too.
Happy holidays in advance to you all. Really apologize for the break. Ciao.
