How you doing?

A bee gets up close and personal with a flower. Ontario's updated sex ed curriculum requirements for grades 1 to 6 have raised objections and many parents have pulled their children out of the school system in protest. The Toronto Sun pointed out that the government's public consultation on the changes was less than stellar.

Here is a snapshot of the Parent's Guide to "LEARNING ABOUT HUMAN DEVELOPMENT AND SEXUAL HEALTH. Learning about human development and sexual health is one part of overall health education. It starts at birth. Human development and sexual health education involves much more than simply learning about body parts and reproduction. In today’s complex and fast-paced world, there is much more that children and youth need to know to be safe and healthy. Human development and sexual health starts with children learning about themselves, their feelings, their bodies and about showing respect for themselves and others. As students grow, it includes learning about things like healthy peer and family relationships, hygiene, reproduction, identity, including gender identity, sexual orientation, online safety, mental health and much more.|
