As seen in UK Daily Mail
Sex & Drugs (Alcohol is just the drug we drink) education at ever earlier ages is an admission that what do do isn't working. If we cant teach 15yrs old successfully - where is the evidence we can teach 7 year old with any proficiency.
It is an admission of failure... not of education, rather the social ecology of trying to fix this while the paradigm is flawed.
Teaching young people about sex and drugs at an ever earlier age durably instructs them that all their peers must be 'doing it' and they cant bloody wait. Do what the Netherlands has done, give back power to parents (especially around drug ed) - it is instructive to note that Dutch kids not only 'do drugs' much later then their British (or Kiwi) peers, but they are also by a factor of five in NZ's case, are less likely to binge drink, father a teen pregnancy or bear one, catch an STD, commit suicide or get in trouble with the law.How does one convince sceptics this progress has nothing to do with Dutch 'soft on drugs' policy?
