No, Mr. Obama. Don’t Teach Our Children About Sex

ABC News’ Teddy Davis and Lindsey Ellerson Report: Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., told Planned Parenthood Tuesday that sex education for kindergarteners, as long as it is “age-appropriate,” is “the right thing to do.”

What!

I am at a loss to understand why anyone would think it even rational to teach sex education to kindergarten children. Hey, I know what–novel idea, I suppose–but how about the ABCs, counting, sliding down slides, swinging on swings, erecting sand castles, standing at an easel and, with a floppy brush, smearing poster paint onto white paper, and rolling out clay people and dogs and cats. How about singing Teensy-Weensy Spider, and manipulating building blocks, and banging cymbals and triangles, and marching in cadence, and learning to share, and sitting in a circle to hear the teacher read from a magic book.

Sex education! Let me think about it. Seems to me the more we talk about sex education, the less educated, the less moral, and the less wise our young people become. More couples live together sans marriage than ever did in my day when the schools left such tender and delicate information to the venue of the parent. More babies are born outside of wedlock than were generations ago when the schools hadn’t a clue about sex education.

No, Mr. Obama, we don’t need government schools teaching our babies about sex. Let the Mamas and the Daddies speak of these things. Let it be done lovingly, thoughtfully, and in the fear of God and in consideration of His holy principles.

I remember when our son Jeremy was in 6th grade and brought home a note from school saying that they were going to be teaching his class about sex education. At the bottom of the note was a permission form for the parents to sign indicating their approval for their child to be taught this curriculum. Mike & I did not allow our son to be taught about sex by the public school system. Who knows what they would’ve taught him. We pulled him out of that class and taught him ourselves when he was ready. It is the parents’ responsibility to teach their children about “the birds and the bees”. I agree wholeheartedly, Sis. Buxton, with your post.

it’s all I know is I am doing everything I can to help my daughter so she can home-school and provide biblical teachings to her daughter. Some say home-schooled children lack the social skills to function in the world…I disagree and say the less exposure they have to the evils of the world, the better off they are…. God’s way will always reign.

Don’t even get me going on the pedophiles!!!

Thanks for visiting me Shirley….I always visited your other blog and never knew this one was here…….I need to pay better attention. lovely lovely pics you have….Blessings

Wait until the child asks about babies, and then let THE PARENTS teach. That’s the way it happened in my life with my own children. I don’t oppose showing guppies, but if the child doesn’t ask about reproduction, why push it?

Here’s what Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki is telling The Brody File this morning:

“Barack Obama supports sensible, community-driven education for children because, among other things, he believes it could help protect them from pedophiles. A child’s knowledge of the difference between appropriate and inappropriate touching is crucial to keeping them safe from predators.”

Okay!!! While we’re debating who’ll tell the kiddies about a pregnant dog, Darrell B. Grayson is fighting for his life for a crime that he quite possibly didn’t commit. This blog won’tr accept ULLs, so please visit my blog for information concerning an issue that ought to OUTRAGE us all (especially Christians): racial injustice and the death penalty. Life isn’t all about the innocents. It’s about fairness to adults, too. And if we fight for justice for all, that will include our children.

Please visit my blog for information about what you can do (hint: write to the governor of Alabama and pray for all concerned).

End of vent.

No venting here. I just long for the days of yore. mom and dad. apple pie and ice cream. And of course, old- fashioned values in the home and every where else. Man I must be getting really old!
Our society, regardless of political leanings, has forgotten what made America great. Peace

SEX EDUCATION ? ?

In school ? At home by parents Yes and I say again Yes!!
Please forgive me this is a little crude. The best definition for sex education, is one which I have heard a long time ago, “The husband comes in from a days work, kisses his wife and pats her backside as he passes her.” I feel that we are changing our education system into something that it was never intended to be. Step back and look at all a teacher is required to teach, sex ed, global warming, hygiene, political correctness and gender equality. Now in five or six hours of class time what has happened to A B C’s, 1+1 = 2 and i before e except after c? Have you ever asked a high school student where Iraqi is, or France or England? Have you watched some young people try to make change without the computer telling them how much to give back. Yes some of our young people are excelling in school. I think should you look into their home you would find a mother and father both involved and concerned. “Why can’t Johnny spell?” Because mommy and daddy don’t care!

I will now climb upon my soap box!

Where have the parents gone? Are they involved with the child’s education, other than when the get a note to come see the teacher because they are out of control. And you know it is the teacher’s problem, never the child!?! We are expecting and some times demanding that a teach become the parent of the child and teach that child the interpersonal skills which have been taught at home, until this generation. WHY!
Let’s let the teachers teach what is needed and lets find the parents teaching personal skills at home. There must be two “age appropriate,” teachings going on. Yes, Helenl I do agree with your comment, “Be careful, because the dog is going to have puppies. See how big her tummy is? There is a special place inside her for the babies to grow until they are big enough to be born. And when they are born, she might snap at you if you try to touch her puppies. That’s because mother dogs want to protect their babies. When the babies are born thier eyes will be closed for a few days.” This is a wonderful teaching point, at home by mother and father not the responsibility of our school system.

Thank you for allowing my to vent;

I agree 100% with you, Sis. Buxton. 😀

How do we know parents aren’t teaching this at home? We aren’t there to see. I think more parents than not ARE teaching this at home. Why can’t we just give them a chance. The schools and government want to take the parent’s place and teach their kids because the parents aren’t doing it correctly. Give them a chance! People have children, so they are responsible for them in every way. Yes, there are a VERY FEW parents who abuse, but the majority are doing their best to love and nurture and teach their children. School is for learning the 3 R’s. Just MY opinion. 🙂

Have a great day!

Obama is a Democrat, not a crazy man. LOL He isn’t going to show porn movies so they can perfect their techniques, for heaven sakes. But a simple warning to “Be careful, because the dog is going to have puppies. See how big her tummy is? There is a special place inside her for the babies to grow until they are big enough to be born. And when they are born, she might snap at you if you try to touch her puppies. That’s because mother dogs want to protect their babies. When the babies are born thier eyes will be closed for a few days.” wouln’t offend me.
And although a Christian might might say, “God made a special place inside her . . . , ” the truth about puppies remains, if told from a secular point of view. Obama was reacting to what he thought members of Planned Parenthood wanted to hear to endorse him. He’s a politicain, not a teacher. He doesn’t have anything to do with curriculum and won’t, if elected president of the US.

I agree with helenl. Furthermore, it’s suppose to be mostly to teach kids to know what is and is not appropriate touching, to help protect them from sexual predators. I agree that perhaps parents are better suited for this, but I don’t think many parents choose to discuss it, and some (very few) parents sexually abuse children themselves. Having children learn about it in school seems perfectly appropriate to me.

“Age-appropraite” is the key here. Are you really opposed to letting guppies reproduce in a classroom aquarium, and the teacher mentioning that male and female guppies are needed to have babies? Maybe it because I’m insanely liberal, but I think that would be “age-appropriate” for five-year-olds. Qualified teachers would do the teaching, not an elected official.
