Sex Education and Carol Services

"Daddy, what's a womb?"
"Mummy, what's a virgin?"

Anglicans who worry about children starting sex education classes too early at school need to work out whether we should sing 'O Come All Ye Faithful' with children present. Mind you, at least it gets parents talking to their kids about sex in a Christian context.

  1. Reminds me of the time I was asked the question by a child, in a primary school assembly, 'Why do we refer to Mary as a virgin, because she gave birth to Jesus so she couldn't have been a virgin'... I found myself looking out at a knowing, yet confused Y6 child, and a whole room full of just 'confused' looking children!
