Proper education is the key to knowledge, without which one cannot survive in this world.
Sex education is one such important part of education which plays an important role in the child’s development. Most of the parents have this notion of skipping the idea of imparting sex education to their child, having the fear that they might get engaged in sexual activities before time if they are given sex education.

But that is just the opposite of what sex education does. Sex education aims at providing the children with knowledge in different topics like anatomy, human psychology, merits and demerits of sexual intercourse and the sexually transmitted diseases associated with unsafe sex.

All the public schools should encourage teaching sex education to its students to prevent the students from becoming victims of sexually transmitted diseases like HIV, which will slowly put an end to their life.

Let us discuss the importance of sex education in public schools;

  • To educate the children about their body

The ultimate aim of sex education is to impart knowledge to the children about how our body functions and the various psychology associated with it.

Children, especially teenagers are the ones who become victims of unsafe sex because of the rushing hormonal changes. Even when they are prevented from such early sexual activities, they ultimately end up doing so.

Only when teenagers are given proper sex education, when they are taught about the various risks of early sexual activities like sexually transmitted diseases, they restrict themselves from early sexual activities.

Not by morals, but through proper sex education, the children can be made to encourage the idea of abstinence from early sexual activities.

  • Population Control

A major reason for the overpopulation in any country is due to the lack of proper sex education. Due to overpopulation, the economy of a country is affected tremendously. Concepts like family planning and the benefits of having a compact family are some important sections of sex education.

When the children are taught about the necessities of population control, it encourages in them the ideas of a small family. This helps in preventing overpopulation of a country. The public schools should make sex education mandatory for their students. The parents should play an active role in imparting sex education to their children, to prevent them from becoming victims of unsafe sex.
