Chapter One of  Attitude of Parents and Teachers Toward Sex Education for Upper Primary School Pupils in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo State

INTRODUCTION

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

In contemporary society the issue of Sex is no longer a secret matter. Sex and other sexual activities is being publicized in all most every medium of communications such as the radio, television, social media and the internet. Consequently, the adverse effect of not educating our young ones about sex and the outcome of sex will be great. Sex is defined as the physical activity of touching each other’s body kissing and sexual intercourse. Sex Education is the transfer of knowledge, information regarding sex, sexual activity, sexual reproduction, age of consent, safe sex, birth control and sexual abstinence. This is comprehensive sex education. The primary sources of sex education are the parents, teachers in schools, public health programs. Tupper, Kenneth (2013). Traditionally, many young people were not given sex education in time past as it was considered a sin to expose them to such knowledge. The parents who were considered to provide sex education neglected it and teachers in schools were not in agreement with the subject matter thereby, leading to many unwanted pregnancies, high rate of abortions among teenagers and deaths.

Currently, with the high rate of sexually transmitted diseases, it is highly imperatives that sex education be given to our young people so as to prevent them from getting into the act so early in life. Teaching sex education in primary school is essential to let them know the consequences of early sex life. The introduction of sex education will also enable the teachers to give correct factual information to teenagers on the development of their sexual organ and period of puberty. These commences between the 11-12 years for the girls 14-15years for the boys and in the boys between fourteen to fifteen (14-15) years. It is apparent that this will reduce the rate of unwanted pregnancy and abortion in the society. The study seeks to appraise the attitude of parents and teachers toward sex education for upper primary school pupils in Okitipupa local government area of Ondo state.
