At an average, 1 out of 10 kids is a result of teen age pregnancy. But if decades ago, most teenage mothers were at the age of 16 or 17 when they got pregnant, they are now getting pregnant at a younger age of 12 or 13.Barely near the legal age, which is 18 for female in the Philippines, that would dictate that they can already get married and start a family. How can 12 or 13 years old manage to have a family, how can they be able to take care of a new life if they can't even manage to take care of their own life.Such events shown in the documentation shows that there should really be education of young students regarding such matter. But before getting deeper with the factors around Sex Education, we should probably first discuss the real meaning of Sex Education.It has been explained and described in a lot of words but according to www.wikipedia.com, Sex Education is a broad term used to describe education about human sexual anatomy, sexual reproduction, sexual intercourse, reproductive health, emotional relations, reproductive rights and responsibilities, contraception, and other aspects of human sexual behavior.(a)While there are common avenues for sex education.

And it may, in a leap of hope, lessen the problems that our country is facing. Especially the problem with the great number of population and is still increasing, with the help of Sex Education we can then lessen the rapid increase in our population.There are actually two ways of teaching Sex Education. It can either be taught informally or formally. Sex Education can be taught informally, such as when someone receives information from a conversation with a parent, friend, religious leader, or through the media. It may also be delivered through sex self-help authors, magazine advice columnists, sex columnists, or through Sex Education web sites.While formal Sex Education occurs when schools or health care providers offer Sex Education.
