      No! No! No!
      I heard something on the radio, yesterday that bothered me to no end; the subject was: Is it the churches job to teach children about sex? WTHeck????? Why does society place everything pretaining to the growth and the raising of ones child on the church or even the school system. I had this discussion with my hubby and like I said to him IMO: NO!!!...! both institutions are NOT accountable for teaching your child about sex or anything else outside of what their normal job discription is! Every parent is R.E.S.P.O.N.S.I.B.L.E for the own children it all starts at HOME people!!!! Let’s get it right and STOP trying to place blame on the church and school for your lazy parenting!

      Train a child in the way he should go,
      and when he is old he will not turn from it. (Prov. 22:6)  

      The church is responsible for teaching the WORD of GOD as it is written and as the Holy Spirit of God leads And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers...Eph. 4:11
      if people took the WORD of God and applied it to the raising of their children I honestly think they wouldn’t be in the position their in today with their children running rampant allowing the devil to control their kids. Again it ALL begins at home and you have to begin as soon as that child comes out from the womb of its mother, Satan is already there to tempt that child as soon as it is birthed people!!!! You can’t begin raising your children at the age of 5 and beyond they have already carved their persoanlities and will try you as a parent on every hand. It just trips me out at how some parents wait till their kids get a certain age to then begin to try and implement rules, NOT!!! Rules are to begin from the beginning of birth. Think about this: When a newborn baby is born it cries and the first thing we do is run to it to comfort it and give it whatever we think it needs or wants to calm it dwon, as that baby gets older, like days older we are to change the way we allow that baby to control us its called placing that baby on a schedule right!? Same difference you MUST teach the child who is boss and in control at that moment as the parent its not anyone elses job to rear your child but YOU!, the parent yes the church and the school is there to help assist and I said “assist” us with teaching our children all the other things they need to know in growing to become better citizens, but its NOT their job to raise your child or teach them about SEX!!!!

      "People DON"T get it twisted!, just because the bible implaments sex, which was originally created for marriage, and that is another whole other story, it is not saying that it is the churches job to teach it to your kids it's your JOB!!!!" Thats why we ALL have access to the WORD of God, now go teach it to your children.

        • Neicy I don’t disagree however I don’t think alot of kids get what they need at home. So it falls on society. We can’t just ignore those kids sadly!

        • Hi Vikki, I understand and respect your response and I do agree with it, but however we do have some lazy parents who do depend on and give all their responsibilities to society in rearing their kids because they just don't want the responsibility. Like my mom used to say "if you can't pay the piper, don't play with the pipe!"

        • Neicy & Vikki, true alot of kid’s don’t get what they need at home due to LAZY parenting.  I don’t think it’s the schools and churchs responsibility to teach the kids.  IMO, I think it’s great that people volunteer to be a Big Brother or Big Sister to mentor these children.  Oh, also, it’s despicable (IMO) that shcools provide condoms.  Hello???  IMO, that’s encouraging kids to have sex!

        • Yeah I’m not into the condom thing either. I would rather the kids practice safe sex in the absence of no sex or common sense. And I certainly don’t want the kids to get pregnant and provide us with more babies to be supported thru the system.....

          It’s a vicious cycle!  

          How do we get parents to stand up without sacrificing their kids???????? Grrrrrrrrrrrrr

        • I am still freaked out that my son will get a sex education class next year in 5th grade.  I think he will be SHOCKED big-time by the discussion and I am guessing he will (a) start laughing and (b) ask me (in disbelief) if it’s really true when he gets home..... I better find a way to lock down the computer from google searches on “sex.”

          If it was up to me I would probably not want him to know as soon and I would prefer it come from me (or my husband) when I noticed he actually did not think girls were disgusting anymore....

        • Hi Ela, I totally understand you on the sex ed class and all, but for you to say that you‘re NOT ready for your 5th grader to know anything about sex NEWS FLASH!!! he probably knows more now than you’ll beleive seeing this is all that tv, music videos, and movies display and don’t forget the video games and yes the computer, Oh and I’m sure just socializing with friends in school and around the neighborhood the topic has come around at some point, trust me you need to talk to your son ASAP before you get a shocker lol.

        • You could be right! Not even sure how I would bring it up—guess it will be daddy’s job!  I don’t remember anyone telling me about sex but I do remember reading some smutty books around his age and being grossed out by the whole idea LOL

        • LOL, see Ela this is why you and his father need to sit down and have that talk with him before soemthing or somepne else teach him wrong. Don’t let the fact of no one talking to you at that age keep you from breaking the that cycle with your child. We are living in a whole new time and age and children today are advancing more quickly than we did and they have so much more at their hands in sex tools and info via way of internet, books, TV etc... so please do have that talk with him ASAP! Good luck to you whenever you do!

        • Neicy,

          I have been saying this for a long time.  I also agree many parents avoid this topic though.  I ran a teen center and met many kids with parents like this.  Many were from good homes.  It was not my job to teach them and I didn’t but I did feel as a mentor it was my job to model good morals and behavior.  What so many forget is that most teens engage in sexual activity to find love, acceptance and often, because they don’t know how to say no.  We have watered sex ed down to physical responses in our society.  Its really sad.
          My children, we have had an open dialogue since they could speak.  I won’t know if it worked until they are out there on their own but my fingers are crossed!  happy
