Assalaam. I'm just wondering what is the appropriate age to teach your kids about sex and what is the best way to do this. Do you talk openly about sex education in your home or is it something seen as private and hushed. Also is there any Islamic guidance on this matter. Jzk

4 the 1st time I was given th task of teaching sex ed 2 grade 7 girls! Many of them are muslim! All I can say is tht as the age of 12 they have so many questions cos thy aware of it but no1 has discussed it with thm! Many admitted 2 not feeling comfortable speaking to their parents about ths issue, so I'm glad thy can spk 2 me as their educator instead of googling terms thy want clearance on which wld take them 2 sites we don't want them on! I think children in gr5 are young 4 ths but my grade 7 they need th info.
