ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impact of the problems of sex education on school curriculum and on the psychological development of students in the U.S. The problems of sex education are extremely complicated, not only because it varies greatly at different age levels but because most of the students have been brought up in such a way that they feel hesitant and uncomfortable in dealing with it. It is this difficulty that has resulted in discussions of the wisdom of sex education in schools. An attempt to outline complexities through the various stages of child development may be illuminating.
