I’m not sure why it came as such a shock. I don’t know when kids start learning about this stuff. It’s all new to me. But so is the fact that 1st graders are teaching my son to hold up his middle finger at people, or that two kids in his class have cell phones!! I just feel like kids are growing up way too fast these days (compared to when I was a kid) and the sex ed form just sent me into a panic.
So of course, I sent my son’s teacher an email. At 8pm. Because why wait until the morning? I wasn’t expecting a response that night, but she did get back to me right away.
In case you are wondering, I was told that kindergartner sex ed is extremely basic. It mostly consists of teaching kids about stranger danger, and reminding them that their bodies are private. As the kids get older, they expand the topics. (the basics about HIV & AIDS starts in 2nd grade, and how it is transmitted in 5th grade) I mean, I didn’t think they would whip out the ‘condom cucumber’ to a bunch of 5 & 6 year old kids, but I had to ask.
