Teaching Real Sex in Highschool - Teaching sex education is like telling a kid not to go in a cookie jar. A child usually asks for a cookie and the parent replies, “No.” “Don’t go into the cookie jar.” Then that child will climb or do whatever it can to get that cookie from the jar. As you can picture, parents say no without sharing the reason behind it or how to do what’s being asked. That is the problem not only with children, but also with teenagers. Parents, teachers, and mentors use the abstinence- only approach, which means they only teach high school students not to have sex and that it’s bad, but not all the facts behind it (Crooks 2014)....   [tags: abstinence, safe choices, teenagers]
