The educators who teach sex education and birth control are doing a fantastic job. These fine educators are doing their best to make sure that their students know about birth control and safe sex. They try to have enough information for all their students to know what is safe and what is not.

Some parents and/or guardians are not giving these fine teachers a chance to educate their children about sex and birth control. Instead, they start criticizing the teachers’ methods and complain how the children are still having sex.

I have news for those parents – if young adults want to have sex, they are going to find a way to do it.

The good news is that there are teachers willing to teach children about protecting themselves from pregnancy and diseases.

Any adult can tell preteens and teens about birth control. In many cases, it takes a teacher to provide more details.

Also, there is less embarrassment when a teacher gives information about sex than when a parent or guardian does.
