Report: Kids Should Receive Sex Education From Physicians


THANKS FOR WATCHING MIDMORNING ON THIS MONDAY AND DO YOU REMEMBER THE AWKWARD MOMENT WHEN YOU HAD A TALK ABOUT THE BIRDS AND THE BEADS — THESE WITH YOUR PARENTS. MAYBE THEY SKIPPED THAT, KIDS SHOULD BE GETTING SEX EDUCATION FROM THEIR PEDIATRICIAN. THEY SAY THAT SEX EDUCATION IS EFFECTIVE IN PREVENTING AND REDUCING THE RISK OF TEEN PREGNANCY AND STDS. I WOULD THINK THAT THE AVERAGE TEEN GETS THEIR SEX EDUCATION AT SCHOOL OR AT HOME WITH THE PARENT. WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT THIS IDEA? IS IT ANOTHER SAFER OR MORE TRUSTWORTHY OPTION FOR 18 TO ASK QUESTIONS THAT MIGHT MAKE THEM UNCOMFORTABLE? I BELIEVE IT’S JUST A MORE COMFORTABLE ENVIRONMENT, YOU ARE NOT WITH YOUR PARENTS, NOBODY WANTS TO TALK TO THEIR PARENTS ABOUT SEX AND YOU’RE NOT AROUND HER CLASSMATES WHERE THE INCLINATION IS TO MAKE JOKES AND GIGGLE, OR IN A CLINICAL ENVIRONMENT AND IF YOU CAN GET MOM OUT OF THE ROOM IT IS JUST YOU AND THE DOCTOR AND THAT SHOULD MAKE IT EASIER. HAVE LOTS OF INTIMATE CONVERSATIONS WITH THE DOCTOR ANYWAY, THIS IS JUST ANOTHER. CURRENTLY RIGHT NOW THEY SAY THAT PEDIATRICIANS ARE NOT HAVING THESE CONVERSATIONS, ONE IN 3 TEAMS DO NOT HAVE THIS INFORMATION, WHY IS THIS? IS THAT SOMETHING WHERE THEY DON’T WANT TO STEP ON THE PARENT’S TOES? DURING THESE EXAMS OF THE CHECKUP YOUR PARENTS ARE THERE SO MAYBE THEY THINK THE PARENTS ARE ALREADY DISCUSSING THIS, IT’S JUST A REMINDER THAT MAYBE NOW IT IS TIME FOR THE DOCTOR TO HAVE THESE CONVERSATIONS, THERE’S A RECENT ARTICLE IN THE NEW YORK TIMES ABOUT HOW AMENITIES ARE BEING USED IN THE HOSPITALS AS A WAY OF ADVERTISING SEX TALKS AND THERE’S SOME FRUIT FROM OG’S TOO SPARSE IN CONVERSATION. I LIKE THE CONVERSATION IN THIS IDEA BECAUSE THIS CAN BE SO UNCOMFORTABLE THIS IS THE QUICK BASIC INFORMATION THAT YOU GET FROM YOUR PARENTS AND MINUTES FIGURE THE REST OUT AND THERE ARE SOME QUESTIONS AND THIS IS THE PERFECT ENVIRONMENT. THE QUESTION IS DOES THAT STEP ON TOES? TO PARENTS NOT WANT KIDS TALK TO ABOUT THIS? MAYBE BUT IT COULD TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF, IF YOU’RE UNCOMFORTABLE HAVING THE CONVERSATION NOW YOU CAN GO TO YOUR DOCTOR AND SAY HEY, WOULD YOU BE COMFORTABLE TALKING TO JIMMY ABOUT THE BIRDS AND BEES. IF YOU’RE TEACHING ABSTINENCE ONLY THAN YOU COULD RUN INTO ISSUES. THAT THE CONVERSATION YOU NEED TO HAVE. IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT SEX, IT’S WHAT’S HAPPENING TO MY BODY, WHAT’S GOING ON, WHAT CHANGES, AND SOME PARENTS DON’T EVEN TALK TO THEIR KIDS ABOUT THAT. IF YOU HAVE A CONVERSATION
