Comments: I was researching articles about abstinence only education. Personally, I don't believe in the abstinence only education program. I do agree children should not involve in sexual activates until they are an adult, however, due to my past experiences as a child I know this rarely occurs. I believe the abstinence only programs are a parent’s way to avoid speaking about sex. Children in the new generation are defiantly being sexualized at an early age and their exposure to sexualized content is at an all time high if you compare the past generations views and morals. I found this article interesting because it actually provides background into the failure of the program as a whole. It shows the importance of educating the young children on their options and safety measures is the best course of action. Read it and let me know what you think!
