    Very true, and I think a lot of the paranoia surround sexual education for children that young is based on people thinking that they will be teaching kids about lude and disgusting things. Obviously, that wouldn't be the case. They will teach the kids what they can handle at that age.

    At that age sex is not a factor.Why do schools get to decide at what age this is taught.

    I would say 5th grade would be soon enough and I am sure most parents will already have explained it to the kids.

    Problem is the gays don't want Christian parents bringing morality in to the discussion.

    I developed and ran a sex ed. mini-program in one of the facilities in which I worked. It was for teens and younger than teens. The two groups were addressed differently based on their age and maturity levels.

    Gays don't want parents to explain it to their kids, they want to do it their way which will be 180 out.........

    Because parents aren't doing their job in teaching this stuff to their children. And it is understandable, because the sex talk that parents have with their kids is uncomfortable for both parties.

    I would say 5th grade would be soon enough and I am sure most parents will already have explained it to the kids.
    Obviously you are going to explain sex to a 5th grader far differently than you would to a kid in kindergarten. As CC said earlier, it is most likely from a very limited biological viewpoint, without going in depth into stuff that is more lude and potentially offensive.

    Problem is the gays don't want Christian parents bringing morality in to the discussion.
    And with good reason. I can see if it is a Christian school, but why should Christianity's particular brand of morality be taught at a public school?

    Where is your proof for this? Do you have your finger on the pulse of the gay community and somehow know what they are thinking?

    I know I wouldn't want morality to be brought into ANY discussion about science and facts.

    We are talking about sex education, here. This is about discussing factual information. It is the church's and the parents' responsibility to bring morals into any of these issues. It is the school's responsibility to present information.

    Father Jailed Opposing Gay Education For Kindergarten Son

    For David Parker, the first alarm went off in January, when his 5-year-old son came home from his kindergarten class at Lexington's Joseph Estabrook School with a bag of books promoting diversity.

    Inside were books about foreign cultures and traditions, along with food recipes. There was also a copy of ''Who's In a Family?" by Robert Skutch, which depicts different kinds of families, including same-sex couples raising children.

    The book's contents concerned Parker and prompted him to begin a series of e-mail exchanges with school officials on the subject that culminated in a meeting Wednesday night with Estabrook's principal and district director of instruction. The meeting ended with Parker's arrest after he refused to leave the school, and the Lexington man spent the night in jail.

    Yesterday, Parker was arraigned in Concord District Court on one count of trespassing, and a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf. Bail was set at $1,000, and Parker was freed after being ordered to stay off Lexington school property. He is due back in court June 1.

    Parker and his wife, Tonia, 34, who was also in court yesterday, said the dispute arose because they asked school officials to notify them about classroom discussions about same-sex marriage and what they called other adult themes. They also wanted the option to exclude their boy, now 6, from those talks.

    Parker said he met with school officials to gain those assurances and then refused to leave until he got them. Parker stayed at Estabrook School for more than two hours, according to Superintendent William J. Hurley, as officials and Lexington police urged him to leave. Finally, they arrested him for trespassing.
