ABSTRACT
The article reflects the author's perception in the U.S. on educating children about sexuality. According to the author, if children are being told about sexuality, they may tend to forget actual words, but they will still remember the tone of the conversation and the feelings engendered during the discussion. He added that children learn about sexuality every day, regardless of what parents, teachers or other adults do or do not tell them. Children are growing up in an era plagued by social problems related to sexuality.
