So far not yet, send in long time ago though. anyway, will ask them about it and see how is the development there. regarding sex education we actually do have it in Form 3 but i guess it is better for us to teach it in an earlier age steps by steps is better

I think it's a good age to start/begin education; basic things like, "what is a bad touch" etc.

I got mixed feeling in this. I don;t quite agree as children have very strong curiosity, but then again it is necessary for them to know what is right and wrong.

Hi there, my reply might have been late but I'm just providing you with information and the reality.

P/S: It depends how you define 'sex education' and 'secondary school'. I shall assume that you meant secondary school as form 4 and form 5. Pardon me if I'm wrong.

Teaching your children sex education when they are in secondary education might be too late. They learn about human reproduction in form 3 science. Please remember that mass communication is every where in this era. Internet is the easiest access to porn sites and not to mention YouTube. Besides, it is very easy to download pornography using certain downloading software.

Teenagers these days watch pornography as young as 12 years old. For the older ones, they share pornography videos (copy and paste into removable drives).

As much as you want to control your children, you can't control or stop their curiosity. What I can tell you is this, do not assume that your child is naive or a virgin until after he or she is married.

Pre-marital sex is common among teenagers and youths. Many would have had the experience by the time they are 19 or when they get into a relationship.

Open communication between parent and child, in my humble opinion, would be the best option to teach your children about sex education.

Ultimately, you are the parent, you decide what information is best for you to disseminate to your child. Just my humble opinion. wink.gif icon_rolleyes.gif

May I ask, what kind of sex education that we want they (the early age kids) to learn?
In what sense the education came in? If it is an education on the right-way(I mean, marriage) of satisfying our sexual lust, it is a very good education.
By teaching them that adultery is forbidden by ALL religion (I believe), women are respected and they will learn that desire and lust are to be controlled,not obey. Or else, we are just a slave to our desire, lack of self-control.

Home Ministry bans children’s book on sex education
February 22, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 22 — The Home Ministry today banned a classic children’s book on sex education, saying it could be detrimental to public morals.

The educational book, “Where Did I Come From?” by Peter Mayle, was first published in 1984 and tells the story of a man and a woman who meet, fall in love, have sex and become parents.

Ministry deputy secretary-general in charge of security Datuk Abdul Rahim Mohd Radzi announced the ban under the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984, just a day after ordering a temporary halt to the book’s sales to study if the content could harm the nation’s “moral.”

5 years old is way too young. They've barely started watching Disney Channel!

But one thing for sure is, the more the government prefers to not expose sex education to youngsters, the more likely they are curious about it and we all know what happen.

I've not read everything but seriously, 5 yo is too early! When I was 5, all I watched was cartoons, busy playing masak-masak, running around looking for ladybugs. I understand, time had changed but no, 5 yo is too early. Let them enjoy the childhood and innocence first.

Maybe pre-teen, as in 9-12 is a good time for them to start sex edu because it's when their hormone levels are getting higher...starting to have affection for opposite sex.

Living in a typical Cina family, my parents(and grandparents) told me nothing about it. I thought babies came out from butt. I thought you get babies after kissing with the opposite sex. That's all because of the dramas I watch on tv...and that was my introduction to sex edu. I would say I'm always curious and my parents never check on me when I'm using the computer., so I started to search for everything. And of course, I would say I was smart enough to delete history, temp and all.

So yeah, long story short, I learnt sex edu myself with the internet. Even watched porn at a very young age because I was curious. Curious, that's all, not for entertainment purposes. After that I found out about STDs, safe sex and basically everything.

Then, there comes "proper" sex edu in secondary school. That's when teachers start giving lectures about sex and STDs. I study in an all girl's school so we were quite disciplined, listened to everything and no further questions. But I already knew all these back in my senior years in primary school. They told us about condoms, those spermicides....but none of us know what are all those. Before that, we don't even care lah, now that we are exposed to such things, we became more curious and wanted to see them.

Not sure sex edu is good or not. It tends to make us more curious and want to look for more info. But yet, at the same time, it's good to know all that la.

So yeah. It really depends on different individuals. Some kids are born to be rebellious, some are very reserved(but some act innocent). Parents need to take extra care of their children la.

Till now..even after I'm legal, no one in my family told me anything about sex edu. Nothing. Taboo blink.gif

For me I thought hugging each other is already considered sex and when the baby is ready to come out, the mum's stomach will crack. The mother then have to push it out. laugh.gif I soon learn the truth around standard 6 from friends.

As of now, we learn about this basically in form 1 where u learn the super basic stuff about this. The proper 1 is form 3. So is this sex education already? rclxub.gif

I think 5years old is for sure too early. No matter anywhere in this world dont apply this system to start a sex education at 5 years old doh.gif
Perhaps can make it at secondary is more realistic? tongue.gif Somehow dont think so that it is easy for Malaysia Government to just implement this system as we Malaysia considered as a secular country which consists of Muslim as the majority. So, maybe it might just be a dream among us that is too far too achieve at the sky rclxm9.gif

5 year olds being taught sex education? Why not let the parents teach them instead? Isn't it better for them to learn how to solve maths equations, speak fluently in Malay, and English?

I think I will agree on most of the posts.

Sex education needs to come in stages; like teaching what's a sexual harassment and when should you report them at the really young age, i.e. 5 year-old.

Then it slowly moves onto more detailed stuffs, introducing the sexual relationship, and the safe sex, etc etc when their understandings are better.

Well I think Malaysians are yet still conservative in this sex education where parents feel embarrassed to talk about - thus we need some other teachers to guide them through, by stage, rather than having them googling the wrong stuffs and going astray with the wrong information.

kids now learn fast, whether via correct or wrong channel(not tv channel, k). while watching a tv show, the couple goes into the room and then my fren's 4 yo niece says that 'oh, mereka nak buat itu eh' = =''

at 5, teach basic is ok la, like protect your body all those(other than family members, no touchy-touchy on some places), why we have to wear clothes, i read this in Young Scientist which i think is relevant. not to encourage one as young as 5 yo to read the magazine, but parents and kindy teachers,too have to do their part on this.

IMO, parents should be in charge of teaching their kids about the basics of sex for 5 year olds. What i mean about basic here is what one should not do to the kid. For example, teaching a girl on what and where one should not touch or do to her. The same goes to little boys. Teaching them on how to protect their own modesty and not allowing maniacs to do anything unwanted to them. If the kid is not even aware of what is wrong and what is right, then wouldn't this increase the chances of the kid being a victim of sexual predators?

My parents, one of whom is a obgyn, are pretty open about this stuff. I basically knew almost everything (aside from sick/unconventional stuff) there was to know about sex before primary school. didn't fuk me up in any way, in fact, i think it helped me develop a mature view about sex early on.
