At what age should children be told about sex?

I don't know really. I even don't know when I knew about it. Perhaps I'm still a child at my age. How about you? :roll:

I think you shouldn't tell them, they will know it anyway. I knew it when I was 13.

How do they know if adults don't tell them? If you let them know themselves, they don't understand fully or misunderstand. It would be dangerous. Children will want to try it when small. :roll: My parents don't tell me. I read books to know it. :oops:

As long as your child has good education he won't try it when he is small. I also didn't, see, my parents never told me anything about it.

well don't know.. me hear about it when i was something 5 or 6 years old, but things I was hear, was all totaly wrong, of course. I tryed those things also out my self :lol: it was harmless, nothing like real sex. Don't know, if my parents, or some, told that time to me the truth about it after.. but I surely was not able to hold my big mouth closed and talked to everyone how I did it.. to aunts and uncles, parents and soo on. :lol:

But in school there they was teached some.. when I was maybe 16. they did not had even right textbooks about it yet.. I supose that was new thing to them to teach it.. so the teacher had to use a porn magazine help to teach...

I think parents should tell their children about sex. It doesn't mean you tell them to do it. It can happen that your kids will ask you about it. So you should teach them the differences between two genders. In my country, secondary and high school students are taught about sex in out-class activities. They will be answered everything they wonder about sex by biology teachers, doctors and psychologists. I think it's very good for them to have sufficient knowledge about sex. Children who discover sex themselves are often shy to talk about it. They'll think it's a dark secret if adults also feel shy to tell them. As for the question 'at what age should children be told about sex', I think they should know about it since 12 years old.

If the kids turn into teens and don't ask their parents about sex, maybe it's the parents turn to step in and explain some things to their children. I think it's very important that parents and kids talk about EVERYTHING, and not leaving some topics aside. Kids should know that they can trust their parents and ask them anything.

My parents never talked to us about sex. It was like a taboo thing. I remember when I was small and we were all watching a movie and there came a kissing scene, my dad would take the remote and change the channel. Nobody would say anything, which was even worse.

I would like them to be more open and try to talk to their kids about any subject. There should be no taboos in a family or a society.
