I most wholeheartedly agree. If parents won't talk to their pre and teen-aged children about their changing bodies, and what those changes mean in their lives, schools must. I believe that if these teens know what's happening to them, they will be better able to make the correct choices.
As a teen (many many years ago) my parents told me what was going on w/me: a few morning trips down the stairs w/my urinary erection,led to "talks" that educated me as to what was going on and the results of "experimentation" with someone of the opposite sex. As a result I did not get 'her' pregnant until I was 19.
Upon reflection, when it came down to the moment, all that education went right out the end of my penis. However, all that education stopped me, from going "all the way" when still in high school, the most vulnerable age.
The hormones do take over, at a certain level of activity, when action becomes more insistent than reason. So I say, let us give our children a new, more educated level of reason, rather than telling them "Just say 'NO'.
