Curb Sex Behavior in Barbadian Schools Through Sharing Knowledge

Ambrose Carter of the Pure Sex Centre has recently shared his concerns about the sexual activity reported among school children. He said parents need to be more aware of what is happening in today’s society. ‘Who is protecting our children? Parents need to be more aware of the risks and dangers our children face in schools. There are many sexual dangers present and the protection of our children cannot be left up to the schools or Ministry of Education’ he said.

The Minister of Education recently sent stern warning to some teachers who have been allegedly engaging in sexual activity with some students. Carter said it is easy for students to be lured – they can be lured into homosexuality, prostitution or human trafficking and parents need to be aware of the company their children keep because the student sitting next to a child can be the cause for most concern.

Carter listed sex education as a pivotal tool that can combat a number of issues we are facing as a society. He says sex education can empower students to make better decisions. Referring to a study done last year by the Pure Sex Centre, 57% of primary school children wanted to abstain until marriage- this was before the sex education information was shared. An additional 30% pledged to wait for marriage after they heard the message. Carter said that is proof that a great deal of our students want to abstain and be sexually pure.

The founder of the Pure Sex Centre said parents are leaving it up to society to parent their children. He said children model what they see on the internet, in the media and in society but they must be given the opportunity to choose what is right.

To better empower and educate parents, Pure Sex Centre is on the heels of hosting a series of Parenting Empowerment seminars.
