Today's show, Monday, April 23, 2012, discussed “Sex amongst teenagers, birth control, condoms, preventative pregnancy measures and what age should parents and or guardians discuss sex with their children?” Alvin from Tulsa, Oklahoma, said in 2012 he believes a child in the 7th grade is a good age to initially discuss sex with them. Jazmin (my faithful weekly caller from New York) said she thinks a child in the 5th grade is an acceptable age to discuss sexual education with a child in their home. Jazmin said children will also receive sexual information from T.V., radio & in the public and it also depends on the maturity level of the child. I understood both of their stances, but children should be sexually educated as early as in the 3rd grade or in kindergarten due to their classmates being exposed to sex via their 'cracked out' parents or guardian and via child molestation. I am a FIRM believer in 'preventative' measures for teenage pregnancy. Alvin from OK provided a VERY informative description on how to put on a condom and why its important to properly utilize a condom. Alvin also stated when a child’s innocence has been erased; no longer believes in the Easter bunny or Santa Clause - is a good time to implement sexual education. I also pointed out if an individual isn't comfortable discussing sex and condoms; they are not mature enough to participate in sex.
