Parents should NOT tell their children what is ‘right or wrong’ about having sex – UK Govt

Daily Mail Online (UK) 23rd February 2009

Parents should not tell their young teenage children that it is wrong to have sex, ministers said yesterday. They should curb their tongues for fear of discouraging youngsters from ‘being open’, according to a campaign to involve mothers and fathers in sex education. But, while parents are warned against giving moral guidance, they are encouraged to get their children to use condoms and other contraception from the age of 13.
