It’s not enough that teachers teach about the birds and the bees, they should also know how to react when their students ask about birds laying eggs and where to go when the bee stings.
A non-governmental organization focuses health is giving workshops to teachers who are handling sexuality education in schools to prepare them for their students’ street-smart queries and for counseling.
“It’s not enough to know about the different parts of the reproductive systems,” said Kevin de Vera, the program associate for training and research of the Forum for Family Planning and Development Incorporated.
“You should also be prepared not to be shocked by the questions being raised by your students,” De Vera added.
De Vera said that they have compiled about 100 frequently-asked questions on sexuality from students they counseled in Cebu, Albay, and Benguet and some of them can be shocking.
“They would ask you if it’s okay to have sex every day and having sex during menstruation,” he said.
“They might laugh and you would think that they’re making fun of you but laughter is their way of putting off stress,” De Vera told about 60 high school teachers from El Nido and Taytay towns.
Forum has already given the 3-day training entitled “Bridging gaps in teaching reproductive health” in Cebu City, Albay, Ifugao, and Benguet.
