Explicit materials cleared for schools

Explicit cartoons, films and books have been cleared for use to teach sex education to schoolchildren as young as five.
A disturbing dossier exposes a wide range of graphic resources recommended for primary school lessons.
The shocking material – promoted by local councils and even the BBC – teaches youngsters about adult language and sexual intercourse.

Good idea, you don't know the shock I experienced at the age of 21 when I found out what gay men actually did, up until then I grew up thinking they sellotaped their bits together:|

Why on earth would a 5 year old need to know about sex?
banned#16
I bet there won't be many kids under 10 will actually use these as a learning aid....the Paper and those church peeps have jumped on the supposition that primary school year one starts for 5 yr olds...the reality is that parents have to give their consent for this type of lesson.

apart from the sellotape, I also grew up thinking you could get pregnant by kissing ( kiss chase was a nightmare for us girls!! ), pregnant by using the same toilets as boys etc, some basic knowledge of the truth would've made playtime much more fun:D

Yeh but age 5, let them stay kids for as long as they can. When they get older and start talking about it then yes.

I think my son was about 7 when he started to ask questions, I always answered as honestly and simply as I could, but I do agree in some ways society is encouraging lo's to grow up too quickly, my girls are not going to have boyfriends until they're at least 25, boys are mucky creatures on the whole:D

Children are reaching puberty earlier now than before.
Teaching primary school children about things that could be happening a few relatively short years from now may be necessary.

I haven't read the article, but I would be surprised if it actually names any schools that use all the material.

Daily Mail? lol.

Stop all the stupid benefits people who get preganant at a young age get, no houses, no flats, no benefits etc, a lot of them are just taking the easier way out of life, never have to work as they go straight from school to having kids, free house etc, never working.

off topic but when my daughter was 9 or 10, she came in from school saying she had the worst day of her life, she whispered in my ear, she had just learned about puberty.
burst out laughing, thought it was hilarious the way she told me, so her sisters would not hear.

One or two cases maybe by accident but in a lot of these cases its stupid **** who mucked around in school, who are lazy who get pregnant not all but most are these types.

I am all for sex education in schools. I am very open with my son and try to answer his questions as clearly and carefully as possible. Children of school age talk, its better they receive the information in a educational manner than play ground talk.

The sex education they will be doing will be focusing on loving relationships which I think is much better than when they reach age 14 and most of the kids think they know more about sex than their teachers.

I feel it would be helpful if parents could be given a guide on the information the children are given at school so that they can answer any questions the child may ask about what they have learnt?

I think handled correctly it could be a good thing. It's better to talk to the kids when they are younger than trying to talk to a group of sniggering teenagers, and I think it's good to be open and honest about these things.
I don't think it really harms their childhood or makes them grow up too quickly, they'll probably have the class and then move on as they aren't actually interested in sex anyway at 5

i'm more concerned about the story of kids falling asleep in class because they stay up till the early hours playing computer games in their bedroom. What dumb brain dead parent has a tv and games console in their kids bedroom? I will sleep soundly at night knowing my kids will be getting a head start in life.

Really?? Talked about at age 5?? I agree kids should hear the facts from an adult and not playground gossip but I would have thought Junior school is early enough! Y rush things?? If they were to ask, then I agree, be honest but make it as simple as possible. But please for God sake, let them be children and stop taking their innocence away!

5 year old are exposed to much worse things day to day (raunchy pop videos, TV shows that are more and more inappropriate for kids to even be around when it's on, video games with gun, swearing, prostitutes and the worse... other kids who make up myths and stories about sex) why not teach them about sex, kids nowadays are not innocent and sheltered as before.

What's that going to do to them? Make them sex maniac? Ask you as a parents questions? Give me a break. I rather my child know about and have an healthy attitude towards sex than not know anything and end up pregnant at 12.

Kids never talk about sex either especially to parents and will rarely ask about it during sex ed classes due to embarrassment.

The UK has the highest amount of teen pregnancies in Europe - it's about time they started tacking this problem.

I agree , age 5 is waaay to young , maybe key stage 2 age ( @ 8 onwards ) but 5 is ridiculous , my son is 7 in June and i for one know he's not ready to learn about the 'birds and the bees ' ..

The image of the little girl tickling the baby in a cot with a feather with the text about orgasms underneath is just wrong on so many levels.

Not 5 year olds i know tbh.

You say that "kids nowadays are not innocent and sheltered as before" and while this may be indeed true and a sad reflection of todays society, i think sex education for 5 year olds is a (further!) step in the wrong direction. Much too young, let our kids have a childhood.
I'd also question your point that "Kids never talk about sex either especially to parents" I grew up knowing i could speak to my mum about anything and hope my children will feel able to do the same, when they feel ready-not when society or the latest Government faddy policy dictates.
