huchipapa: I was not ready for that conversation/thought process/exposure for another oh 6 years or so.
spman: serial_crusher: spman: Teaching third graders about suicide? Fine, I could see that as being a potential issue they may have to deal withWhat kind of horrible childhood did you have?I think for sex and drugs it's about getting the brainwashing in early. You're impressionable enough at that age that a police officer coming to your school telling you drugs are bad makes a difference that lasts./ My school did DARE in 5th grade. I knew of a couple kids experimenting with pot in 6th.In the sense that even children deal with depression, and are aware of the concept of death and the permanence of it, I could see suicide being an issue children might deal with. On the other hand, unless you live in an abusive household with absent or neglectful parents, no normal kids under the age of maybe 12 is dealing with sex and drugs, and by the time they do, fifth grade is going to be nothing but a fleeting memory.
Anthracite: So they are cutting silent reading in the classrooms so that they can concentrate on the Core Curriculum federal standards.And this is a part of them.As a parent, I want to be able to teach my kids when i think they are ready to be taught stuff like this. I really think schools need to keep with math, english and etc. But leave this to the parents where it belongs.
huchipapa: Yesterday my 12yo daughter and I were driving into town for something and she was telling me about this novel she was reading where "the girl put her mouth on the boy's [yatchee]. That's disgusting. They call it a blow job". Three sudden lanes of traffic later and trying to dry the coffee I spilled all over myself, I almost passed out.I was not ready for that conversation/thought process/exposure for another oh 6 years or so./6th grade was such a revelation for her. It's killing me.
jjorsett: Aaaaand of course the article itself says nothing about parental outrage, it's part of the dialog subby is hosting in his/her head. Welcome to Fark, it's not news it's making shiat up.

lack of warmth: The only person I ever knew to masturbate as young as nine is my wife's cousin who is now a ward of the state till they deem him to be allowed in public again for the sick sex acts he was caught doing to smaller kids. I think you guess how I feel about this. There is no harm waiting a while to teach kids certain things. They'll grow up fast enough.

Venereal disease and unwanted pregnancy don't wait for stuffy, lazy, f*cked up parents.
