During this time, the reproductive health education, which is in it there is sex education, considered taboo among some communities. They argue that the reproductive health education is not appropriate to be received by early childhood. The reason why the reproductive health education is important to do is 1) the children will grow up to be teenagers and they do not understand about the reproductive health education because their parents are still considered taboo to talk about it, so they feel not responsibility to the sex and the anatomy of reproductive health; 2) Because of child misunderstanding of the sex education or the reproductive health makes them vulnerable to the misinformation. The impact of this misunderstanding, causes negativity to the occurrence of sex outside of marriage, unwanted pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases and so forth. Reproductive health education at schools is the complement of sex education at home. The role of schools in providing sex education should be understood as a complement of the knowledge from the home and other institutions are working hard to educate children about sexuality and it does not mean that the school takes a portion of the parents.
