Skip to comments.Canadian parents not so sure about sex education for 3rd graders

I can’t say precisely how similar Canadian families are to American ones, particularly when it comes to parents with small children. Some things seem to be universal though and this might be one of them. Canada recently implemented a plan where they would be expanding sex education for their students, starting off with some big, need-to-know items for first graders. Who could possibly have predicted that anything would go wrong with a plan like this? Well, when it came time to send the kids to class, as many as 90% of the parents in some areas kept their kids home.
Parents of thousands of elementary students across Toronto kept their children out of class Monday to protest the sex-ed portion of Ontarios new health curriculum.
The hardest hit school was Thorncliffe Park Public School, where only about 130 children showed up for class out of the usual 1,350 or roughly 10 per cent. At nearby Gateway Public School, some 400 students were away, nearly half the usual enrolment. At Valley Park Middle School, some 590 students were absent out of the total 950.
So let’s see what some of the complaints were, shall we?
In Grade 1 they should be learning about the ABCs, not sex, said Thorncliffe Park parent Lubna Awah, who kept her kindergarten son home.
Boys are boys and girls are girls why should they learn about a third (gender) in Grade 1? asked Awah, who said she believes children will be encouraged to question their gender identity as early as Grade 1.
Children really have no absolute need to know where babies come from in first grade, though if the parents want to start easing them into the general gist of things early on that’s up to them. But then, that’s the whole point, isn’t it? This is something for the parents to handle. And even if we were to assume that this was an appropriate age to begin learning the mechanics of reproduction, there is absolutely no way that first grade is the time (assuming there ever is one) to begin indoctrinating impressionable children with an abject rejection of physical reality and have them “questioning their gender.”
I see there were also classes on masturbation for third graders and a special high tech section on “sexting” (and the dangers thereof) for sixth graders. Out of all of them I suppose the one I would be in favor of is the latter, provided it’s handled delicately. Cell phones are another thing that young children lack the experience and maturity to handle, but if they must have the technology in their hands they should be warned against any perverts asking them to send naughty pictures.
This entire proposal should have been rejected, but I suppose the world has “moved on” too much to hope for that. And since this will be coming to a school near you soon (assuming it’s not there already) you may has well be prepared. At some point there likely won’t be much choice left but to home school. What’s really shocking about this Canadian story was that when it was proposed earlier, less than half of the parents surveyed opposed it.
Hurrah for the parents who kept their kids home! People have to start fighting back.
I turned 83 today.
We had no sex education.
We had large families after figuring it out ourselves-—with a little help,of course.
I’m sure. NO!
Keep the schools out of our kid’s sex lives.
If you had been shown videos, shown how to put a condom on a vegetable and given lube, I am sure you would have started a lot younger.
Today’s children are having their innocence destroyed by liberals.
Selfish parents. The amount of damage that will be caused a child of 9 who will be forced to wait until he is 11 (due to ignorant arm flailing parents) to learn the best techniques for fisting and felching is incalculable.
“Todays children are having their innocence destroyed by liberals.”
Exactly-—all the destruction of Virtue in our children started in the 60s when all the neo-Freudian/Marxist literature and history and warping of good and evil began in earnest to destroy Christian Worldview in children intentionally to collapse culture-—just as Lukacs (cultural Marxist) planned in Hungary.
HOW DID THE MARXIST CORRUPT THE CULTURE——Sex Ed was put into all the “schools” to destroy innocence-—focus kids during latency on sex organs so the Limbic area is enlarged and not suppressed like it was for 2000 years with Classical Education which suppresses base instincts to create intellectual formation and maturity.
Sex Ed will warp the minds of immature children who can’t understand the emotions-—it destroys privacy and everything which makes sex ‘moral”.....so that they will not only look at others as objects and sex will be a meaningless act——they will also learn to hate the opposite sex-—because being herd animals and in latency—children prefer “the Same”. To love the Other—takes maturity and Sex Ed fixates children in latency and warps their whole perceptions of “Love” and “sex” for LIFE.
Sex Ed is total dehumanization of children—removing privacy and dignity and modesty and mystery (that which gives dignity and romance to sex later) from children for the “artificial mixed sex classes” where they tell lies to children (boys are girls, sodomy is good, etc.) so children become totally irrational and immoral-—to make sex meaningless and remove all morality from the act-—so they will grow up to be exactly like Miley Cyrus.
Happy birthday, Mears.
I turned 83 today.
Happy birth day friend.
The ‘world may be moving on’ but who is watching out for the pot holes?
Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Mears, Happy Birthday to you...... ;>)
Just got in from the doctor where I had a routine physical.
I aced it.
(No bragging,it’s all in God’s hands.)
