There are so many urgent issues that need to be tackled such as the lack of medicine in so many government hospitals, unemployment, corruption among others but I wonder why our government has decided to prioritize on issues concerning sex.
Just recently, the government gave consent for our teenagers to use contraceptive pills as a means of preventing early pregnancies. I saw this as a go ahead for our young youth to have sex despite the fact that the age consent for sex is at 18 years.
As if that’s not enough, the same government has now agreed to have our little children as young as 3 years to be exposed to sex education.
Hello! What’s going on here? Does the progress of our country now depend on sex education or is our government hell bent on destroying the innocence of our little kids.

Really, what does a 3 year old need sex education for? This is a kid who is just out of pampers and starting to learn his/her ABC. In fact, in most nursery schools, they spend their time singing and playing. It’s how they are taught things because their minds are still raw to grasp certain concepts.
So, of what significant will sex education be to them? And what exactly will they be taught particularly? You claim their sex education package will be about knowing their private parts and why those so called parts are unique and different.
Well, to know the significance and uniqueness of one’s private parts is not bad idea but why should this be of importance to a 3 year old whose mind is mainly focused on playing with his/her toys.
Besides that, why are you trying to instill knowledge that can easily damage our children’s mind? Did you know that many children who share the same lodgings with their parents have witnessed on many occasions their parents play sex but because they don’t understand what exactly is happening, the episodes escape their minds? So, what do you think will happen when these kids get to know about sex? Don’t you think that this will pique their inquisitive minds and they start practicing what they see?
Further more, I believe in our nursery days we have all sang this song about body parts that goes, “Head, shoulder, knees and toes and then at the last line goes eyes, ears, nose and mouth.”
So, now that you are interested in teaching our 3 years old about their private parts as part of their nursery curriculum, should we also add a verse in that song that talks about the vagina and penis?
Will such a song sound sweet to your ears when our kids start singing about vaginas and penises?
If No, then I suggest you leave sex education to the age brackets of 10 years and above that will appreciate such knowledge. Otherwise, if we continue with such education to 3 year olds, we are most likely to establish an immoral society whose debauchery starts with kids.
Some one come out and tell me the whole story
