Human Sexuality Instruction
The family provides the primary influence of children and youth related to sexual values, attitudes, and behaviors. A program in human sexuality education within the school is intended to supplement the teachings of the family. Parents are encouraged to use the times when schools provide human sexuality education as opportunities to discuss this topic with their children and clearly express family values, attitudes, and behavioral expectations.
Instruction in human sexuality education, including reproductive health, family planning, and prevention of sexually transmitted infections, is essential if individuals are to gain understanding and acceptance of their personal responsibilities for the choices and consequences to their sexual behavior.
