Yesterday, 5th July 2016, the beauty Queen, Face of Urhobo 2015/2016 (Okpakpa Ogheneruona Lauretta) who is also the CEO of Queen Ronny’s Blog posted on her Facebook page regarding sex education for teens in Nigeria.
LET’S DISCUSS SEX EDUCATION!
In Nigeria, it is almost like a taboo and the young ones keep making avoidable mistakes because we shy away from this staple topic, which is a common subject of news, entertainment, relationship and entertainment headlines.
I know the basics are taught in health classes, but your teen might not hear it all, nor understand everything. As awkward as it maybe, it is the responsibility of the parents.
While discussing sex education with your teen;
1) Be honest
2) Be direct
3) Hear his or her own view
4) Make them comfortable enough to discuss sex with you and seek your advice whenever necessary.
5) Buy them comprehensive sex education books to read.
In social media and our communities, we hear all sorts of stories that are inhumane, but when the deed is done, it cannot be reversed, don’t wait for your TEEN to be a VICTIM before you are propelled to act.
Sex education is a massive topic, it also entails date rape, abstinence, homosexuality etc.
I would love to go on and on, but to save your time and mine, I hope you learnt something.
