In PROVIDENCE, R.I. A controversial bill has sparked an age old debate on when is the right time to teach children about sex education. Lawmakers are saying that the basics about the “birds and bees” should start in Kindergarten. Didn’t Southpark try this once?

In MILLARD, Neb. — A mom says that a Spiderman Book is inappropriate for her 6 year old. The mother said she’s upset by a comic book that she considers sexually explicit that is in her son’s elementary school library.The comic is part of a popular new series about Spider-Man and the head librarian says it’s been in high demand.
Svendsen said she’s actively involved with her four children’s educations and said comic books like the one in question hold little literary value. She said she’s especially concerned about her 6-year-old son, who’s still developing reading skills. “I think having it in your school, you’re still accountable for what’s in there,” she said. Good thing she doesn’t live in PROVIDENCE, R.I.

Just as we preach to our driving teens…..
