My philosophy is “knowledge is power”. The more our kids know the better choices they can make. I have been teaching my kids since they were small all about sexual health. Of course age appropriate stuff. It’s unfortunate that we live in a day and society that we need to empower our children with what goes on in our world and how to protect themselves.
Your son will take out what he can or what he wants from this book if you allow him to remain in class while the book is read. I feel as though he should be there for two reasons. One being he will learn some valuable information and two he would be singled out and possibly teased from this.
He will come home with lots of questions I’m sure, but it’s all for the good.
