PARENTING

Talk to your children about sex

The sex education debate has been gaining momentum over the years, but now it has reached a pitch that cannot be ignored.

While some say the time is now for all parents and schools to openly talk sex to their children, some are saying it’s suicidal to lift the veil off something the children didn’t even know existed.

Even matters of curriculum have come up; what do you cover at which point? What do you tell the children? Details in today's New Vision.
