It's hearing things like this that make me sad for the state of youth today. I remember in fourth grade, all I thought about was reading a lot. I played baseball, but that was mostly because all my guy friends did too. I don't know if my brain's just wired differently than everyone elses or what. My parents never had "the talk" with me, and (in my mind) it was never necessary, because having sex in high school (let alone grade school) never even entered my mind as something to do. I went to a public school, and in 8th grade health class we had sex-ed which was contraceptive based rather than abstinance based. Oh yeah - scare tactics too. Nothin' like an 8 foot tall picture of the effects of certain STDs to scare the bujezus out of a kid. Slide shows rock.
Anyhow - kudos for you for taking on the job of a teacher. I hope to be one some day soon too, but in college, rather than grade school. Does your school have the Channel One news program? I think it's a horrible idea to pipe that drivel into schools - it's more commercials and rock music than it is actual news. Not that rock music is bad, [edited due to rant].
And, Malakai, not all boys have cooties, I, for one, have had my shots.
