    Not surprising. I think in grade 4 we had sex ed. So I was 8 or 9 when this happened and it was awkward! She made us give her names of various body parts and pointed at the naked pictures....

    Anyways, I think you can take your kids out of these classes, or you can homeschool them, or send them to an Islamic school.

      I feel kids are being robbed of their childhood these days - they need to play, have fun, not think about relationships etc! They are KIds!

        If you are raised on a farm around animals, sex education begins long before the age of 5

            Assalamu `alaykum,

            You can withdraw the children from the sex education with no problem, it's just that most parents don't care, or don't realize that the curriculum is really not good.

            In North America, you just send a letter to the school and the kid is withdrawn with no problem.

            Also what lots of my friends do is they go before the school year starts and talk to the teachers about things that they don't want the children participating in (e.g. drawing christmas stuff), and so they plan together with the teacher an activity in which the child can also explain to the class about the islamic celebrations, or about ramadan, and so he/she can feel part of the class without having to participate in things that are not in line with islamic beliefs.

                    It really depends on the child, but I think the first signs of puberty is a good time to raise the subject, as it can help them understand the reasons why their bodies are changing....it also gives you an "access point" to what (let's be honest) can be a very difficult subject to approach for many parents.

                    We have to be pro-active about this, especially those of us who live in kaffir countries where displays of overt sexuality and sexual behaviour are extremely common.

                    It's better their education in these matters come from us, their parents, who care for their emotional well-being, rather than the other kids in the school playground or the filthy behaviour they WILL witness in their everyday lives.

                    If we don't help them understand, they will only draw their own conclusions from the things they hear and see (and act upon those conclusions)...and that could be potentially devastating, for them and us.

                      Don't matter what age they are, having non Muslim teach your Muslim kids the filth of their sex education. They teach about homosexuality that there's nothing wrong with it, these people got no morals they think it's ok to fornicate as long as it's done safely. Muslim should get their kids out of these schools.

                        The Quran and hadiths talk about it, so it's bound to come up sooner or later. What if they ask you about what Allah means here? Would you just say, "nothing, move on!" :S

                        If your child reaches puberty, I think it's good to talk about it then. It's better that the hear it from you, as oppose to their classmates who will definitely tell them about it even if they don't want to hear it.... :(

                          Well we never had to ask that stuff...it's one of those things you just find out later in life, well yeah :rofl1: primary school class mates, but still we never thought anything of it...when we were kids we were reading sabak, quran, 40hadith etc, we weren't looking at hadith on relations with opposite gender and that :p

                            The best rule of thumb is to simply give them open, honest answers, plus relevent Islamic teachings, when they ask the questions. I'm not sure that sitting a child down and saying "right, time to learn about the birds and the bees" and then telling them the "horrible truth" is necessarily the best way, it just confounds the embarassment of parent and child and makes it harder to broach the subject in the future... whearas concentrating from the outset, on being open and honest with your children, and maintaining lines of communication between you means that they won't be afraid to ask you questions, and will be much more likely to ask you, rather than ask someone else these questions. That way you will know that they are getting correct biological information, in conjunction with Islamic teachings about them.

                            Kids questions start as soon as they start learning about the world (especially if they live on a farm lol!!!), like where do babies come from, how did the baby get in mummy's tummy etc. You don't need to go into graphic detail, what is important is that you give them honest answers and show - by the fact you are happy to answer their questions and also by telling them - that they can come and ask you questions about these things. Then continue this as they get older and their questions on this subject get more complicated.

                            Teaching them about Islam should be a high priority for any parent, and they will see non Muslim life going on around them, and you need to be able to explain what is going on, AND what Islam teaches about it, and WHY Islam teaches that (e.g. consequences of sex outside of marriage for the individual and for society) in a way that is appropriate to their age and the kinds of questions they are asking.

                              because teenagers (and even preteens sometimes) keep on getting pregnant and getting STD's.

                              Unfortunately lack of education in schools isn't the problem: things that encourage kids to grow up too quickly (e.g. shows like brats about hair, make-up and dating aimed at primary school aged girls!!!) - a lack of education and guidance AT HOME - these are big parts of the problem. I can fully understand why non Muslim schools are doing the only part they can, by trying to provide guidance and correct information to counteract the incorrect information the children learn in the playground - but really it's only fire-fighting, it doesn't cure the root of the problem.

                              Then parents who prefer to actually give their kids guidance at home instead of not bothering at all or just leaving it to the school, are made to feel like they are doing something wrong. The reality is, if parents do a good job in providing guidance and correct information at home, the schools don't need to do sex education at all!!! So if you are teaching and guiding your children on these matters at home, take them out of sex ed classes at school :up:
