Sound sex education is an important responsibility of the home and the community. As the adult's own attitude toward sex influences the child, it is essential that this attitude be free of secrecy and reflect high standards and moral values. It is up to the adult to know the basic facts, get along with the younger generation and be able to talk with boys and girls freely and without embarrassment.
From these implications several questions are posed. What is the teacher's role in sex education? How valuable is the school in substantiating the home?
It is the purpose of this study to share facts and attitudes with those who are confronted with, the problem of educating children concerning sex, realizing that as the child develops physically, he has certain natural curiosities which must be satisfied at his level.
It is hoped that those who must educate will be able to develop sound attitudes, satisfy basic emotional needs and enable the child to take responsibility for his own actions and avoid guilty feelings and fears.
