Providing young people with the knowledge of sex education is the key to ensure their healthy decision-making. As they will grow up, they will face important decisions about sexuality and sexual behavior and if they are well informed then they will have an idea regarding their own anatomy and the opposite gender's anatomy. This will impact their own health and well-being for the rest of their lives.
Young people or rather teenagers need to know about their own body and how it functions in order to be able to respect themselves and the opposite gender's bodily functions. If a boy or a girl is not aware of the bodily changes and hormonal changes that they are going through then they will not realize that they have been sexually exploited if in case of any such unfortunate incident.
Sex education does not only ensure respect among the genders in the context of their sexual choices but also ensures a healthy sex life when they grow up and start being responsible adults. Due to the lack of sex education in school and families teenagers often stay confused and even get depressed at times. In order to gain knowledge about the same, they might start surfing about details online but then again that gets more harmful for the kids because online forums cannot be trusted with all the information that they provide.
At times, it becomes the duty of the parent to inform their kids about sexual issues especially about good and bad touch. No wonder, every kid will develop interest on this topic at a certain point of time. Therefore, it is advised that the teachers, schools and the parent play a vital role in handling contexts like sex education.
