Sex Education for Parents.
Looft, William R.
The family is no longer an effective transmitter of many important kinds of knowledge. As a result, many of the family's traditional functions have been taken over by other social agencies. From this perspective it seems certain that comprehensive sex education programs will soon become a reality in our schools. It is imperative that a positive approach be taken toward the outrage and protests of many concerned parents. There is a need for greater awareness of and sensitivity to the sources of this concern. The following three procedures could be beneficial in calming the fears of parents: (1) programs and courses on sex education for parents should be implemented. Such courses would help the adult understand his own sexuality; (2) there should be close parental involvement in the establishment and content of the sex education courses; and (3) means should be provided for wide dissemination of information about resources and materials on sex education.
