100 words on why we need sex education

By Felix Kavii | April 16th 2016

Sex education is ‘big’.

It’s actually a core pillar in shaping the nation. The world is sinking deep into immorality and diverse fast transformations because the current generation Y is not familiar with this issue.

The Internet has only blinded the youth. Parents too have been plastered with the dot.com attitude and now most of the young families shy away from the topic.

Many others consider it an abomination to talk about sex across peers. Teachers too are not helping the youth of today. The result is: early pregnancy and spread of STDs.

I believe being open and straight forward is the best way to tackle such issues. Only our folks and teachers can shape this culture while it’s still fresh, however it may be awkward.
