Why 21st century Nigerian parents need to revisit sex education

If you are at least 25 and above and grew up in a conservative home, I want you to think back on the kind of sex education you got. 

The chances are that you didn’t get any at all or even if you did, it was so crappy that it only instilled fear in you. That alone should be more than enough reason to make you carefully ponder the kind of sex education you (will) give your children. 

Yet, I still see so many 21st century parents shying away from talking about sex with their children, even the ones that are educated and exposed. That needs to change. So, these are reasons why you should revisit sex education.

1. It is a natural part of growing up

It is only normal for children to be curious about their bodies and their relationships with other people. So, don’t make the same mistake of shutting them down as our parents did. The fact that they are asking questions does not mean they are spoilt.

2. The world is changing

Once upon a time, there were only two recognized genders and now there are more. Mind you, the trend of globalization is making the world increasingly smaller so that means that they have access to a lot of information so they actually need guidance to make sense of it all.

3. It is an opportunity to impart values

When you leave children to the wind or external sex education, you miss the opportunity to impart family values on them. For example, it is from a young age that you should begin teaching them about respect, consent, abstinence etc. This way, you disabuse their minds from wrong worldviews about sex. 

As you can imagine, I am not done with this topic yet so watch out for the next installment.
