Why 21st-century Nigerian parents need to revisit sex education (ii)

Sex education is a topic that most Nigerian parents shy away from and I understand why- our parents never had that talk with us. 

Also, most of us assume that sex education is only about sex itself. However, issues like sexual violence, consent, respect for their own bodies, abstinence, etc are all part of sex education.

Therefore, it is imperative that we do better with our own children. So, here are more reasons why we should talk about sex with our children.

5. To protect them

The world is now more dangerous than we could have ever envisioned. Lots of perverted people are out there, so if you teach your child about sex from an early age, they can easily recognize when someone is teaching them evil or trying to sexually molest them. 

6. It eases communication

Being able to talk about sex means that the lines of communication are always open between the parents and child(ren). More so, the child(ren) understands that they can talk about anything with their parents.

7. You can control how much they learn

Talking about sex right from home adds some level of control over what they are learning outside the home. The fact that you have not concealed it makes the curiosity about it lessen. Curiosity only heightens when there is concealment.

8. No education leads to mistakes

Leaving your children to their devices means that they will not have proper guidance about sex until they learn themselves. Sometimes, children then engage in terrible acts or mistakes out of curiosity e.g. having sex at a young age, touching children of another gender inappropriately, exposure to rape, etc.

I understand that sex can be a very awkward topic so it is not very easy to introduce to your child so how do you go about it? We will discuss that soon in another article. 

For now, know that sex education is a must for all parents.
