A few weeks ago, news broke that the Chicago Public School System was mandating sex education in its schools... for KINDERGARTENERS! The curriculum calls for an average of 30 minutes a month.
The concern is that parents are not teaching the facts of life to their children (to put it mildly). The problem as I see it is that the nanny state isn't giving parents the chance! Goodbye innocence!
I'm so glad I can home school - if only so I can introduce sensitive topics at the time I feel my children are ready... and Kindergarten is NOT the time for my kids.
