A recently resurfaced European report originally published in 2010 by the World Health Organization (WHO) is adding to continued debate in the United States over sexual education for children.
Co-authored by the WHO Regional Office for Europe and the German Federal Centre for Health Education, the 68-page publication advocates for policymakers, educators and national health departments to begin formal sexual education as early as possible. The report suggests “a child is understood to be a sexual being from the beginning.”
The WHO report continues by saying “the benefit of this approach is the normalization of the topic of sexuality.” Towards the end of document, a matrix highlights what sexual topics WHO deems is age appropriate. For ages 0-4, the document advocates for this group to have “the right to explore nakedness and the body, to be curious”.
TheDailyMail.com recently reported about an over-decade-old movement throughout Europe to have the WHO withdraw their report. South Wales politician Laura Anne Jones has lead much of the European debate against the WHO’s sexual advocacy. Jones tells the Telegraph that the WHO needs to “rescind the advice immediately”.
As the 2024 elections draw near, conversations about sexual education for children are becoming a hot topic among parents and presidential hopefuls alike.
