Many young people feel that sex is a pass-time, a recreational activity that they should be able to engage at any time and at any age. Seriously: how does having sex at any age make sense?
Let’s think about it? Will parents allow their children to drive an automobile at any age? Will the government? Do they allow children of any age to vote?
So, if parents and governments put age restrictions on some activities, how can one think that having sex is different?
Having sex is a serious business. It requires some knowledge of the responsibilities and consequences that are attached toit. What might some of these be?
There are emotional consequences of having sex irresponsibly and without a certain level of maturity. Life is far from what is portrayed in movies and television programs. These are fantasies, life is reality!
A possible result of not knowing how to have sex properly can result in a variety of sexual transmitted diseases, some of which can be deadly. Such diseases can cause years of suffering
Another possibility is pregnancy! Are children ready to handle the responsibilities of parenthood or the murder of an innocent child?
If we don’t properly educate our children on the seriousness of sexual activity and the possible serious consequences of having sex, then we are failing them in one of the most important aspects of life.
So while sex is an important part of life, it is also a serious part of life that requires adequate knowledge and a serious level of maturity. Parents must act responsibly and not rely on any other source to do their job of proper parenting. This would include proper sex education.
No, having sex at any age is allowing all sorts of serious problems into the young lives of our children which can only lead to unhappiness and harm.
